Shane’s Rib Shack is opening Monday in Aiken.
Local franchisee Shane Irvin is opening the restaurant at 2645 Whiskey Road in the former Talbots space at The Shoppes at Brookhaven, according to a news release.
The barbecue restaurant will employ about 30 people and include a banquet room apart from the main dining area.
The Aiken restaurant is the second Shane’s in metro Augusta, joining the Evans site that opened in 2008.
The original Shane’s Rib Shack was founded in McDonough, Ga., in 2002 and has grown to about 70 restaurants, mostly across the Southeast.
