About Our Brand

We were raised in restaurants and this is Our story...

Our Mission
     Our mission is to only award franchises to those who share our passion and vision, and will therefore be great operators.  The single most important factor to achieving the long-term goals of The Drunken Crab franchise program will be the passion and quality of our franchisees.

     We’ve seen too many fantastic concepts fail because the franchisor did not practice due dilligence in the franchise award process.  Conversely, we’ve seen mediocre brands outperform expectations, because the franchisor had the commitment and vetting skills needed to recruit quality franchise owners.

​We are looking for the best of the best.

Our Brand...
    The Drunken Crab was founded with the simple goal of becoming every guest's "Favorite Neighborhood Crab Shack." The Drunken Crab brand brings the delicious traditional flavors and fun atmosphere of classic Louisiana Crab Shacks to new markets, while fostering a culture of exceptional service rooted in "Southern Hospitality," resulting in both an exceptional guest experience and great business opportunity.
    Knowing what we stand for, and passing on this essence to our guests, is paramount. These are not just words on paper: it is who we are. To provide an unparalleled experience for those who come to visit us, we must work together to make our culture known.
