Famous Dave's BBQ Shack

Famous Dave's Finds Its Place in Fast Casual

Finding the perfect real estate may be a challenge for many full-service restaurants, but Famous Dave’s—a 186-unit, casual-dining barbecue chain based in Minneapolis—is scaling things down to find the solution.

The new Famous Dave’s BBQ Shack, a 3,000-square-foot prototype that allows the brand to scale down its barbecue offerings into a fast-casual setting, helps the brand fill in existing markets and take advantage of a broader range of real estate opportunities.
