Hi, my name is Shawn Davis. Some know me as Chef Big Shake. 

My two biggest passions in life are family and food and those passions have led me on an unbelievable journey.

It all started when my daughter came home from school and announced that she wanted to eliminate red meat from her diet. As a dad, I wanted to support her and As a chef, I headed to the kitchen. That’s when the Original Shrimp Burger was born! 

It’s a blend of sweet American caught shrimp, herbs and spices all packed into a delicious patty. She loved it! Family, friends and local restaurants loved it TOO! 
We realized that this burger was so good, that we HAD to share it. After all, there are millions of people who are looking for beef alternatives.

Since then, we’ve been on a mission to get The Original Shrimp Burger into the freezers of every grocery store across America to give people more choices!
To pursue that dream, I took an opportunity to appear on season 2 of
THE SHARK TANK. Although the sharks said they loved the burger, they just couldn’t help because of the lack of experience and connections in the grocery industry.  

I left the show disappointed but not defeated. I had to show my kids that you never give up just because one door closes. After the show aired, I was met with thousands of emails from people who had seen the show. People were asking me where they could get the burger and saying that they couldn’t wait to try it. One email I received was from a man named Leslie. He told me that he wished I had made a deal because he is a huge fan of shellfish. He went on to tell me about Crowd Funding sites like IndieGoGo. So, here we are, ready to share The Shrimp Burger with you!

With hard work we’ve already made some great progress. The burgers are now for sale in than 15 different retail chains but that number only represents a SMALL percentage of retailers in this country. In the food industry, we are small guys competing against huge national brands. Our competitors have unlimited budgets to market and promote their brands to the masses. This fact does not make our fight impossible though. Every brand starts out as an UNKNOWN!

This is why we need help from the IndieGoGo community!

We need to help spread the word that the Shrimp Burger is here to stay! Every day, we get emails from people supporting us, encouraging us, and thanking us when the burgers hit the shelves in their local store. But there are millions of people who still need to try Shrimp Burgers. The more opportunities we have to let people try the Shrimp Burger, the more demand there will be. When the people want something, retailers react and that is how we get the burgers into every grocery store across America. 

So, how do we get the word out?

We’re taking The Shrimp Burger on Tour! 

I’m going to take this tour Old School, State to state, city by city, UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL! I want everybody to have a chance to taste this Shrimp Burger. When we get to your city, we’ll invite you and the community to come out and taste the burger firsthand. You’ll have the chance to add your signature to the petition which says, I want the Original Shrimp Burger in the freezer in my local store

??? Your City???

The more money we raise the more cities we’ll visit! You’ll be part of the journey too, we’ll Tweet, Facebook and email our location daily so you can see firsthand how your support is fueling Shrimp Burger Revolution.

(new recipe only contains 160 calories per burger)

Why We Want to Raise $50,000:

$50,000 is the minimum amount we need to take The Shrimp Burger Revolution Tour on the road. For every $5,000 we raise, we can visit one city. This is why our goal is set at $5,000. Your money will help cover all of the costs associated with the tour including travel (what we are traveling in), Shrimp Burgers to give out as free samples, Hotels, Gas, etc. We have also built in the cost to get all of the rewards created and shipped. The truth is, we truly want to see this movement become a revolution. We want to show retailers that if people are requesting products from smaller companies, they should listen. Retailers should give more chances to companies without big budgets for slotting fees and mass marketing.CONSUMER DEMAND WILL SPARK RETAILER REACTION. Thank you for taking the time to check out our page and for joining us on this journey.

Nutritional Information

When creating this beef alternative burger, not only did I want to make sure that it would taste good but I also wanted this burger to be healthy. We use the best ingredients available to us to make these burgers starting with wild caught American shrimp. It was important for me to support the local shrimp industry here in the USA. I saw firsthand how the importation of shrimp from places like Asia and India have almost decimated the  domestic shrimping industry. We also made a point to exclude MSG, Palm Oil and High Fructose Corn Syrup in our burgers. These shrimp burgers have 160 calories, 3 grams of fat and 25 grams of protein in each 4 oz portion.
