Bamboo Shack was established in 1990, and has since grown to be a household name of The Bahamas! Since then, Bamboo Shack has now expanded to Miami Gardens, Florida, and is loved by all of its customers!
The Mission Statement of Bamboo Shack is:
“No matter the circumstance, we will still produce the best food and service possible, in quality and value for each and every customer!”
It all started as a dream in the mind of a woman who wanted to make the best chicken recipe in the world and transform the fast-food industry in the Bahamas.
For Ms. Elaine Pinder, the dream became a reality in 1990 when she opened Bamboo Shack on a meager 20’x 20’ (400 sq. ft.) building located on Nassau Street with just two employees.
As demand grew, a second branch was opened on Baillou Hill Road in 1995. Shortly thereafter, Bamboo Shack expanded its operation on Nassau Street with a bakery that would supply all branches with freshly baked bread rolls and burger buns daily.
Through many years of perseverance, Bamboo Shack has become a ‘household’ name whose products many Bahamians have ‘dubbed’ deliciously Bahamian.
In December 2009, Bamboo Shack demolished its original building and constructed an aesthetically pleasing quick service restaurant, which included a state-of-the art commercial kitchen where the new “Healthy Choice” menu items are served.
The building’s exterior and lushly landscaped parking will serve as a prototype for future Bamboo Shack locations.
