What is Shakeaway?
Shakeaway purports to be the world’s largest milkshake bar company, with its original store - in Bournemouth - opening back in 1999. It now has 500 units based all over the world, and has generated a loyal following of fans.
The Shakeaway brand has thrived due to its informative, colourful store designs, its jovial staff (otherwise known as The Shakettes), and its ever-changing menu of kooky milkshakes, smoothies, yoghurt, shaved ice and fries.
