From the flagship store in Hampstead to seven restaurants in North Carolina and beyond, Burrito Shak has been serving up unparalleled flavor and expertly crafted “Fresh Mex” cuisine with a family-friendly atmosphere for seven years, with no signs of slowing down. As the books close on 2021, Burrito Shak announced total sales among locations bested $6.5M, representing a staggering 88 percent growth in sales from the previous year. Reflecting on 2021, it’s hard to begin without first noting such a milestone, as it’s a direct reflection of the admiration guests and investors have for the franchise. And as the Burrito Shak family continues to grow, it’s a benchmark attributed to all those who have seen the brand’s value and believed in the mission behind its existence to “Get Shak’d”.
“We are excited about where Burrito Shak is heading. We are seeing outstanding growth at our store levels and the reaction from customers in new markets has been phenomenal. We are excited for 2022 as we plan to enter multiple new communities and states and help more people around the country Get Shak’d,” said David Longo, Founder and CEO of Burrito Shak.
A Year of Growth
We are very proud to share that Burrito Shak experienced an extremely successful 2021 that brought the signing of development agreements equating to seven shops in operation and another two in development. Surf City led the year, opening in January 2021 and Lake Havasu, AZ, which represents the first Burrito Shak location outside the confines of North Carolina, opened its doors to the west coast in November 2021.
What to Expect in the Year Ahead
We are more committed than ever to forging ahead this year, with a record number of new restaurant openings in local communities. Our goal is to reach 13 locations sold by year end, expand our footprint into two new states, and achieve franchise sales of at least $8.5M. Operational goals include keeping up with a high degree of system-wide growth in new and planned locales, pursuing new technological advancements (in-store and online) for the benefit of our customers and franchise partners, and pushing our brand’s vision and mission forward to reach more consumers and prospective franchise owners than in any year past.
