Shack Breakfast & Lunch opens in Overland Park August 10
Award-winning St. Louis restaurant concept featuring unique breakfast and lunch dishes and a full bar opens its first location in the Kansas City area
OVERLAND PARK, KS (Aug. 9, 2018) — Shack Breakfast & Lunch, an award-winning restaurant concept founded by lifelong friends from St. Louis-based OG Hospitality Group, opens its doors at 7940 W 135th St, Overland Park, KS 66223 on August 10. This is its first Kansas City-area location, with another location opening at 7218 College Boulevard in Overland Park later this fall.
Shack Owners Brant Baldanza and Jon Fogarty selected the Overland Park location because it reminded them so much of their home in St. Louis. The life-long friends both come from more than 30 years of experience in the restaurant industry and together own OG Hospitality Group, the management company for Shack Breakfast and Lunch, The Tavern Kitchen & Bar and The Corner Pub & Grill.

Community Involvement: JMAC Gives Back
OG Hospitality Group gives back to its local communities through initiatives including charity events, donations, and team sponsorships. Since opening its first restaurant in 2007, OG Hospitality Group has raised more than $2 million for local organizations. Shack continuously supports JMac Gives Back, an organization created by NFL Veteran and Hall of Fame Wide Receiver for the Missouri Tigers, Jeremy Maclin, that provides kids with the proper tools they need to better their growing education. A portion of every Wolf Pack and Griddle Fling ordered off the menu directly benefits this organization providing school supplies and backpacks to families who are struggling financially.
