Georgia-Based Barbecue Chain, Shane's Rib Shack, Vows to Maintain Menu Offerings and Prices, Give Away Thousands of Ribs and Deliver Franchisee Support

ATLANTA April 29, 2014 According to the Chicago Board of Trade, the cost of pork is up 45 percent since the beginning of the year, a rise attributed in part to an anticipated pork shortage across more than half the U.S. With some restaurant establishments examining alternative protein options to keep costs down, Shanes Rib Shack, a true American barbecue restaurant, remains committed to serving quality pork menu options at a value price to its customers. To send a reaffirming message to its customers and the industry, Shanes plans to give away 7,000 half racks of barbecue ribs to celebrate National Barbecue Month in May. For many restaurateurs and chains, the pork cost increase has led to menu changes and increases and tense discussions with distributors, says Shane Thompson, president and founder of Shanes Rib Shack. Two of our signature menu items are our baby back ribs and pulled pork, and we intend to continue providing these and other pork menu items at the same value to our customers. Promotions such as our customer favorite Rib Giveaway will resume as planned. read more....
