Angry Crab Shack Set to Open First Franchise Location in Atlanta

Family of Entrepreneurs to Bring the Unique Seafood Boil Cuisine to Atlantic Station

August 03, 2022 // // ATLANTA - Angry Crab Shack has announced its latest restaurant opening slated for early Q4 of 2022 in the Atlanta Midtown area. Located in the heart of Atlanta at mixed-use destination Atlantic Station, at 1380 Atlantic Drive NW, the milestone opening will bring the first Angry Crab Shack location to the Peach State.

Behind the Atlanta development is a family of entrepreneurs: Mia Scott, and Darlene and Gregory Morris. Mia is Darlene’s daughter and Gregory is Darlene’s nephew. Gregory will use his experience working in the hospitality industry to run the day-to-day operations of the new Angry Crab Shack location. Darlene will use her years as a lifelong educator to organize the restaurant’s financials, as well as manage its charitable initiatives and outreach in Atlanta. Mia is an entertainment business attorney and will be overseeing the location’s long-term growth strategy. Coming together to start a family business was an unexpected dream for the three that blossomed during the COVID lockdowns. They are excited to open in Atlanta and are aiming to hire up to 50 employees at the Atlantic Station location.

“We are overjoyed to come together as a family to open this unique, fun seafood restaurant that is known for its delicious food, charitable endeavors and family-friendly dining experience,” shared Darlene Morris. “Great food, bringing families together, and giving back - these were our main priorities for us. The Angry Crab Shack brand is the perfect fit for our first family business.”

“Darlene, Gregory and Mia are a strong team who are enthusiastic to give back to their community and passionate to start their own restaurant business. These are traits we look for in our franchise partners,” said Andy Diamond, President of Angry Crab Shack. “I’m thrilled to help them make our brand’s launch in Atlanta a successful one. With its diverse dining scene, the Atlanta area is an ideal market for an Angry Crab Shack, allowing its residents the opportunity to experience and enjoy our endless combinations of Cajun and Asian flavored seafood boils.”

Angry Crab Shack draws on bold Asian and Cajun flavors - as well as a fun food presentation and a laid-back environment to create an unparalleled dining experience for guests. Best known for using the freshest ingredients, Angry Crab Shack sources lobster from the East Coast, Dungeness Crab from the Pacific Northwest, King Crab from the Bering Strait, Snow Crab from Canadian waters, and crawfish from the Gulf of Mexico. Guests can expect a fun, family experience where they can throw on a bib, roll up their sleeves, and dig in! The brand offers a variety of boils including, shrimp, crawfish, lobster, crab and more.

“As a family-friendly neighborhood restaurant, Angry Crab Shack is a great addition to our lineup of restaurants at Atlantic Station,” said Phil Purdom, Director of southeast retail real estate for Hines. “Angry Crab brings a unique dining experience with its Asian-Cajun flavors and interactive style. Whatever our guests are looking for, Atlantic Station will continue to offer a diversified culinary mix that satisfies every taste bud.”
