The iconic -- yet incredibly young -- burger chain will finally open this Monday in Boca Raton.
The original Shake Shack opened in New York in 2004, and its 100 percent Angus beef burgers and eco-friendly philosophy had every town in America drooling for a Shake Shack of its own. Now, Florida has three! The first two were in Miami, though. This one is ours.
Shake Shack confirmed the opening date and time with a statement on its website. Follow the jump for all the grand-opening details.
According to the statement from Shake Shack:
On Monday, April 22nd at 11:00AM our third Florida Shack will open in Boca Raton's University Commons shopping center. Boca's thriving business scene, academic community and world-class resorts make it the perfect spot for our all-natural burgers, flat-top dogs, frozen custard, beer, wine and more. Located on Glades Road directly across from Florida Atlantic University, this will be a true "roadside" Shack with an expansive outdoor patio for alfresco dining.
They wisely positioned the new location directly across from Florida Atlantic University and in the same busy plaza with Whole Foods. College students and organic foodies are both key Shake Shack demographics.
"We are thrilled to be joining the vibrant scene at University Commons, and we hope this
Shack will be an exciting destination for Boca locals, FAU students, and visitors alike," said Shake Shack CEO Randy Garutti. "This will be a true 'roadside' Shack and include an expansive outdoor patio for alfresco dining."
