The Burger Shack

Melanie was born and raised in Bend, Oregon.  After high school she attended Central Oregon Community College and then Western Oregon State University majoring in Early Childhood Education.  Discovering she had a passion for business, she went into partnership and ran her first restaurant in Oregon for ten years.  She then decided to move to Faulkton in 2010 to be closer to her family and take over her parent’s business.

The Burger Shack was established in 2003 by her parents, they decided to retire and sell the business to Melanie.  Melanie has been in the food and beverage industry for twenty years, owning a restaurant in Oregon and general Managing a restaurant and Lodge in Kula Hawaii.  After a lease option on the Burger Shack for two years, Melanie purchases the business and building from her parents in 2012. 

Moving to Faulkton has been a great place to raise her three children, Molly, Michael and Max who all graduated from Faulkton High school.

The Faulkton community has been such a wonderful support to Melanie’s family and the Burger Shack, and Melanie is so thankful to be a part of the Faulkton community.
