Shuckin’ & Jivin’ opens second location
Shuckin’ & Jivin’ recently celebrated the opening of their second location located in Broward off Taft Street and Pembroke Pines with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on July 10. The first location in Miami Gardens quickly grew in popularity and prompted an expansion with this new location.
Created by food entrepreneur, Ernisha Randolph, and her musically talented family, Shuckin & Jivin’ is set against a 1960’s and 70’s themed eatery. The nostalgic theme takes you back to an era when life was groovy and food was something you experienced and not just ate. The authentic taste and ambiance celebrates real southern culture and some of the greatest Black culinary icons. The menu features southern food from the Guchee and Gullah cultures in the Carolinas to the low country in Georgia and Creole flavors in New Orleans. Everything on the menu is handmade and locally sourced.
Ernisha is not just an entrepreneur, she is also a mentor who runs a non-profit to guide young girls for making better life choices and the lessons she learned from the hardships of being a teen mom. In her college days, she launched Juanita’s Kitchen, a catering service with her grandmother which continues to run successfully to date. With ongoing high customer demand for easy access to her food, in 2017, she started the Sweet Butter Hospitality Group where the team extensively tested and hosted pop-up dinner shows. In June 2018, she finally opened doors to the Shuckin’ & Jivin’ brand and served over 30,000 meals within the first five months of opening.
The chain is funded and supported by Miami Bayside Foundation with the second location as part of the company’s expansion. In addition to the Broward and Miami locations, there’s also a food truck with a dine-in location expected soon.
If Creole food and New Orleans-style cooking is what you love, then Shuckin’ & Jivin’ has all of your fixins with a menu of gumbo, jambalaya, Shrimp Po’ Boy, conch fritters, and grilled shrimp. Drop by and enjoy the authentic cuisine and culture.
