The Burger Shack
Faulkton Area Economic Development Initiative

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, then 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 purchased the business and building from her parents in 2012.

Moving to Faulkton has been a great place to raise her three children, Molly who is currently a freshman at NDSU in Fargo, Michael who is a junior and Max who is a freshman, both whom are attending 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 this community.
