You may have heard the whispers and the rumours are true – the much loved modern day New York “roadside” burger stand will be opening its second London Location at Westfield Stratford City in 2015.
This new Shake Shack will build on the success of the original London Shake Shack in Covent Garden (opened July 2013). Born in 2004 in New York City’s Madison Square Park, Shake Shack is a modern day “roadside” burger stand known for its 100% all-natural Angus beef burgers, griddled-crisp flat-top dogs, fresh-made frozen custard, crinkle cut fries, craft beer and wine, and a cult-like following around the world.
“Ever since we opened in Covent Garden, we’ve been humbled by the passionate response from Londoners. With fans packing our Shack daily, we thought it was about time we built another Shake Shack. Westfield Stratford City feels like the right place and the right time,” says Randy Garutti, Shake Shack CEO. “We can’t get enough of London’s booming food culture and we’re looking forward to deepening our roots with our fans, local farmers, artisanal producers and community.”
Shake Shack will be located on “The Street” in Westfield Stratford City – one of the UK’s premier retail locations – and will feature unique interior design made from recyclable and sustainable materials including reclaimed bowling alleys handcrafted in Brooklyn and retired rooftop water towers from Manhattan.
The menu will feature Shake Shack favourites including the ShackBurger, SmokeShack, Shroom Burger and Shack-cago Dog, made from UK sourced ingredients and 100% Scottish Aberdeen Angus beef.
From its premium ingredients and environmental responsibility, to deepening their roots with local farmers, artisanal producers and the community, working alongside The London Lions basketball team, partnering with local vendors, supporting local youth and creating over 100 new jobs, Shake Shack will continue to make a difference and their mission to Stand for Something Good.
