The aptly named Fat Shack makes no apologies for its indulgent menu. Its late-night-focused fare is highlighted by sandwiches stuffed with foods typically served on their own, like chicken fingers, jalapeno poppers and french fries. Despite a general industry nod toward healthier options, Fat Shack has tapped into consumers' appetite for fried food, helping it achieve 26% average sales growth since 2018. It grew its footprint by a third in 2020 and planned to reach 26 units across 9 states as of early this year.
