- Don Shula

Join Shula’s Next Phase of Expansion & Innovation


Modeled after Don Shula, the winningest Coach in NFL history with 347 career wins, Shula’s restaurants continue this winning tradition. Shula’s franchises offer the perfect opportunity to own and operate a well-established and high quality franchise. Our experienced team provides best in the business corporate support for every aspect of the business through best practices cultivated over 28 years of successful operations.

Shula’s is seeking qualified franchisees to continue the expansion of the next generation of our famed Shula’s Steak House concept as well as to join us in rolling out our exciting new Steakbar 347 by Shula’s concept. Shula’s recently unveiled a sophisticated new design prototype for Shula’s Steak Houses, with the first location scheduled to open in Gainesville in late 2017. Shula’s newest concept, Steakbar, is designed for a more frequent dining experience with small plates, sharables, locally sourced seasonal specialties, craft cocktails, fine wines, and spirits in a modern atmosphere. The first Steakbar is scheduled to open in Chattanooga, TN in late 2017 and a second location will open at the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, OH in 2018.

A strategic growth plan requires strategic partners


We are seeking firms or individuals with hospitality and/or food & beverage contract experience with background in fine dining, operations, development and implementation to fuel our momentum! We are looking for forward-thinking franchisees interested in joining a league of demanding and hands-on restauranteurs that are proud to execute our industry-leading food and service standards.

We are open to development nationwide, but would like to focus on expansion along the Florida Gulf and Atlantic coasts from Central to South Florida. Shula’s currently has seven full-service restaurants from the greater Orlando area south on both coasts. Our strategic planning shows demand for another 10 destination locations. Multi-unit operator incentives are available.

Shula’s is hosting a Discovery Day in April. This one-day session will feature an overview of Shula’s and the opportunity for one-on-one time with our executive team to discuss specifics.
