Slapfish is a renowned award-winning fast-casual seafood restaurant chain founded in 2011 by celebrity chef Andrew Gruel. Their ridiculously fresh and “crave-worthy” sustainable seafood is nationally recognized on the Cooking Channel, the TODAY Show, PBS and featured in The Wall Street Journal, Men’s Health, Food & Wine Magazine, Entrepreneur, and Restaurant Business, just to name a few.
Slapfish is a trend-setting alternative to the over-saturated burger market, presenting the desirable opportunity to secure units in prime locations.
