About Lobster Pot

Featuring an incredible menu that includes our famous soups, giant bowls of steaming bouillabaisse, generous cuts of fresh fish, juicy steaks, and New England lobster, Lobster Pot offers the kind of meal that our guests fall in love with. Lobster Pot brings the taste of Cape Cod to every community where it opens its doors. Dedicated to the winning combination of outstanding food and exceptional service that its success is based on, Lobster Pot is offering its proven business model backed by nearly 40 years of industry experience to franchise investors across the nation.

Values & History

Lobster Pot was founded in 1970 in Provincetown, MA. Overlooking the historic Provincetown Harbor, the original location has become a local tradition. Building on its success, the restaurant began offering franchise ownerships based on its seafood and steak model in 2017. Featuring real New England seafood prepared in the Cape Cod tradition, Lobster Pot's extensive and creative menu represents a real opportunity for those interested in running a restaurant business under a brand known for quality and dedicated service.

Industry Performance

US consumers spend roughly two-thirds of their annual seafood expenditures in restaurants and other foodservice businesses. Seafood remains an important menu item for most operations, with fish, shrimp, and clams being the most common offerings due to their lower cost. Portion sizes are easy to control and seafood products can be quickly and consistently prepared.
