If hunger is the grain of sand, then the pearl in the oyster is a brand new South Walton delivery restaurant, Shuck You Oysters.

The oyster delivery service, which will officially open Nov. 1, started with four hungry people discussing ideas for dinner over cocktails near Cape San Blas.

“In the Cape San Blas area, there aren’t that many evening dinner options,” said Lauren Gall, one of the founders. They then discussed ordering in, however, “those options are nearly impossible or non-existent.”

When the talk turned to something “more scrumptious,” Jenn Hoffman, another founder, mentioned how great it would be to have fresh oysters.

“The conversation moved jokingly towards, ‘Wouldn’t it be nice if someone would deliver oysters to us now?’ ” said Gall, adding that the four, Gall and her husband, Steven, Hoffman, and Kim Pitchford, went so far as to come up with the name “Shuck You Oysters” for a potential oyster delivery service.

“Not only is the name of the company clever and memorable, but so is the product. The oysters are fresh and delivered to your door...what’s better than that?” said Hoffman, harkening back to the initial desire that started the Shuck You concept.
