“We wanted to create an experience like nothing we’d seen in the U.S.,” said ShakeOut President James Stadleman, and they have done just that.

ShakeOut, located in the Westfield Brandon mall, is said to be Tampa Bay’s only spot to get custom milkshakes. A perfect place to take friends and family for something satisfying and deliciously sweet, there are more than 100 flavors to mix, match and blend a perfect milkshake.

They start with their own premium vanilla ice cream, then it’s up to you to choose from the array of quality ingredients including fresh strawberries and bananas, skittles and M&Ms or even Cheesecake Factory cheesecake. ShakeOut also provides a favorites menu of tried-and-tested blends and a list of customer’s top 10 flavors. Whatever you choose you’ll get a shake that will keep you coming back. Customer loyalty is rewarded, and on every 10th purchase with a loyalty card you get a free shake.

Stadleman emphasized that they also have gluten and dairy-free options, as well as sugar-free shakes for diabetics.

If food allergies are an issue, the employees at ShakeOut will also take the time to double sanitize the equipment so that you can enjoy a shake as well.

To further the customer’s in-shop experience, there is an arrangement of candy branded items and a number of humorous novelty gifts that are displayed on the wall for purchasing.

One of the core values at this shake shop is fun and that’s what they want their customers to come away with. The father-and-son ownership team, David and James Stadleman, have provided a fun and relaxed atmosphere so the customer can properly enjoy their milkshake creations.

The duo has long-term plans to expand the custom experience nationwide and fulfill their mission to sweeten up the states.

ShakeOut is located in Brandon Town Center. For more information, call 699-4204 or e-mail
