Fort Lauderdale, FL (RestaurantNews.com) Shula’s newest restaurant concept, Shula Burger, opened its first corporate owned restaurant located at The Quay, 1515 SE 17th Street in Fort Lauderdale, FL on Oct. 17, 2012.
We are pleased to announce that our flagship store opened less than two miles from our corporate offices near Fort Lauderdale beach. This is the third Shula Burger to open in Florida. Other Shula Burgers are located at The Postcard Inn Beach Resort and Marina at Holiday Isle in Islamorada, FL and at the Tampa International Airport in Tampa, FL. Future locations will include Kendall and Delray Beach, FL.
“The Shula name stands for quality, integrity and perfection,” says Scott Nietschmann, President of Shula Burger. “Shula Burger joins the Shula family of restaurants as our guest’s first choice in the better burger segment. Our mission is to create Raving Fans by providing superior menu offerings from a welcoming staff in a sparkling clean, social environment.”
Coach Don Shula is proud of this new accomplishment and before the opening commented, ”We are happy to be opening our flagship Shula Burger restaurant on October 17th on 17th Street Causeway. 17 is my lucky number. I remember with great pride 17-0 in 1972.”
Shula Burger is a quality, fast casual burger concept, which elevates the burger experience; if you love our steaks, you’ll flip for our burgers. Shula burgers are always fresh, never frozen. They are made from our signature blend of Premium Black Angus chuck, short rib and brisket. Also found on the menu are fresh salads, steak sandwiches and sea salt fries. We provide a relaxed yet sophisticated, social environment where customers can enjoy a superior burger paired with a glass of wine or one of our unique beers. Take out service is available. With 20 years of experience in serving the best beef money can buy, Shula Burger, as a part of the Shula Steak Houses, LLLP family of restaurants, is immediately distinguished from other fast casual burger concepts.
