Chamber Hosts Ribbon Cutting for Shane’s Rib Shack

Chamber Hosts Ribbon Cutting for Shane’s Rib Shack

The Robins Regional Chamber of Commerce hosted a Ribbon Cutting for Shane’s Rib Shack on Tuesday, Dec. 14.

Shane’s Rib Shack is a family owned and operated franchise.  According to local owner, Trinette Rosales and her brother, Charlie Elliott, they both fell in love with the Shane’s concept after trying it for the first time.

“We made one phone call about three year ago,” said Rosales.  “And here we are today!”

Elliott says their objective at Shane’s Rib Shack is to help out the economy with great service to the community.  “We are here to continue to grow the local economy," said Elliot.

Started in 2002 by Shane Thompson of McDonough, Ga., Shane’s big idea grew from a little shack to become the fastest growing BBQ restaurant concept in the nation.
