Shake Shack To Open in Boca Raton

Shake Shack, the fast casual burger and fries restaurant chain by Danny Meyer, inspires carnivorous lust from the thousands of fans who wait in long lines for their fix of Shack burgers and concretes.


Shake Shack, which features hormone-free all-natural 100% Angus beef

burgers, ground daily on location, is opening their third Florida

location at University Commons in Boca Raton (1400 Glades Road).

The new Shack, strategically located across from Florida Atlantic University's

main campus, will offer the restaurant's famous burgers, along with

flat-top grilled hot dogs, crinkle cut fries, concretes and shakes,

beer, wine, and even treats for dogs. If prices remain on par with the

two Miami locations, expect to pay just under $5 for a single Shack

burger and around $5 for a shake.

In keeping with the company's environmentally-friendly stance, the Boca Raton location will

be built using recycled and sustainable materials, when possible, and

will have an energy-efficient kitchen and LED lighting. 

Shake

Shack opened its first location in New York City in 2004 and expanded to

south Florida in 2010 with a location on South Beach. A second south

Florida Shake Shack recently opened in Coral Gables, across from University of Miami.
