Frequently Asked Questions
Where should I locate my business?
The preferred Rib Shack BBQ location is at food courts in malls or premium outlet villages. Our executive team has relationships with many of the major malls in Florida and other southern states. And in terms of size, a Rib Shack BBQ space can be as small as 300 square feet. Remember, all you have to do is accept delivery, heat, serve and watch those customers return time and again!
Do I need business experience to run a Rib Shack BBQ franchise?
Prior retail and/or food industry experience is helpful in running a Rib Shack BBQ franchise. However, we will train individuals who are self-starters and possess the ability to learn skills necessary to manage the business. The food industry is fast paced to be sure, but the Rib Shack BBQ culture and environment is fun and friendly. Our Rib Shack BBQ locations in top-tier malls throughout Florida have a very low employee turnover – our franchisees care about providing the best service and our top quality pre-prepared food to their customers.
How is a Rib Shack BBQ franchise different from other business opportunities?
The takeout food industry is one of the fastest growing in America, but convenience, cost-efficiency and top quality choices don’t often go hand in hand. The Rib Shack BBQ concept is casual dining served fast at its best. And what makes it so fast is our unique “heat and serve” model. No high-cost chefs to hire, little to no prep time required and a guarantee to both you as franchisee and your customers that each delectable plate served up has been prepared using our Rib Shack BBQ proprietary recipes, smoked and seasoned to perfection. The Rib Shack BBQ experience provides an affordable and top rate meal for families out at the mall with wholesome choices that include the Rib Shack BBQ trademark ribs, brisket, pulled pork, chicken, burgers and side dishes.
Now could be the time for you to taste some of our savory success as a Rib Shack BBQ franchisee.
