Shane’s Rib Shack To Open At Cambridge Square

Thursday, December 15, 2016

Shane’s Rib Shack will open at Cambridge Square on Monday according to its owner and Chattanooga entrepreneur Chad Cocks. Shane's will occupy 3,000 square feet in a 13,000 square foot building located on the community's public square. In addition to indoor seating, Shane's will operate a large outdoor patio space allowing patrons to enjoy the activities and neighborly interaction that have become trademarks of the development.

Shane’s Rib Shack is one of the country’s leading fast casual barbecue concepts.

Cambridge Square is a mixed-use development located at the intersection of Ooltewah-Georgetown Road and Lee highway, less than a quarter-mile east of I-75's Exit 11. Legacy Real Estate & Development is overseeing the development, construction, residential sales and property management of Cambridge Square. The Shane's building is the tenth new building since construction officially began in 2013.

“We have been working closely with Chad and his team for almost exactly a year," said Jim Cheney, marketing director for Cambridge Square. "Their space is unbelievable and their menu is going to be a very welcome addition to our restaurant options. We're very excited that they have set an opening date and we look forward to becoming the community's go-to destination for BBQ."

Shane's Rib Shack is a true American rib shack, known for its slow-cooked ribs, hand-chopped chicken and pork, and many southern sides to complement each plate.  The original shack was founded in 2002, in McDonough, Ga. by Shane Thompson, who started the restaurant with his grandfather's secret BBQ sauce. 

The addition of Shane’s Rib Shack brings the total number of Cambridge tenants to 19. Concepts include: Barn Door Boutique, Ceniza, Heaven & Ale, Hudson Cook, Il Primo, Legacy Real Estate & Development, Lupi’s Pizza Pies, Mixed Up Cup, Morning Pointe/IHP, Johnston Southern, Tennova, Sentef Medical Centers, Spalon Three, Southern Burger Co., Summit Physical Therapy, Tedford Family Dentistry, Wine Down Ooltewah, and Yoga East.
