Steak 'n Shake coming to Oakwood

By Ken Stanford Reporter
OAKWOOD - Steak 'n Shake hopes to have its first restaurant in Hall County open by next spring.

AccessNorthGa.com has confirmed with the City of Oakwood and the Lake Lanier Convention & Visitors Bureau plans by Steak 'n Shake to build on a site off Mundy Mill Road near Jamieson Inn.

"We have had several meetings on the proposed Steak 'n Shake," Oakwood City manager Stan Brown said. "We expect the design of the restaurant to be similar to the one in Buford near the Mall of Georgia."

According to the company's website, Steak 'n Shake also has restaurants in several other locations in the Gainesville/Oakwood area, including Cumming, Suwanee, Duluth, and Lawrenceville.

The company was founded in February 1934 in Normal, Illinois, and has about 600 restaurants nationwide.
