***** SHAKE SHACK *****

Back on August 1, 2010 Jeff Eats told you about Shake Shack which had just opened in South Beach..

In that “review”–I told you guys that Shake Shack a fast-food burger joint was “fast food at its best.”

Regular Jeff Eats readers know, that there is no doubt in my mind- that the fast-food burger “business” is totally oversaturated with players—that one day, in the very near future-this gigantic game of musical chairs is gonna end very badly for most of them. There is also no question in my mind, that when all is said and done, Shake Shack will be one of the few players left standing.

I just received the following press release from Shake Shack…thought you guys in Boca Raton would enjoy this “news”…


Beloved Burger, Hot Dog and Frozen Custard Stand to Open on Glades Road

NEW YORK, NY – August 21, 2012 – Shake Shack® is proud to announce it will open a new free-standing location in Boca Raton’s University Commons shopping center in mid-2013.

Boca Raton’s thriving business scene, academic community, and world-class resorts make it an excellent locale for Danny Meyer’s Union Square Hospitality Group (USHG) to bring Shake Shack. Known for its all-natural burgers, flat-top dogs, frozen custard, beer, wine and more, the newest addition to the Shack family will be located at 1400 Glades Road, directly across from Florida Atlantic University.

“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 Randy Garutti, Shake Shack CEO. “This will be a true ‘roadside’ Shack and include an expansive outdoor patio for alfresco dining.”

Born in New York City in 2004, Shake Shack opened its first Florida location in June 2010 in Miami Beach, receiving praise from guests and media including a three-star review in the Miami Herald. In July 2012, Shake Shack opened its second Florida location in Coral Gables on US1 across from the University of Miami.

Like its siblings in Florida and beyond, the Boca Raton Shake Shack will be constructed with recycled and sustainable materials, wherever possible, and feature energy-efficient kitchen equipment and LED lighting throughout the space. The menu will feature all the Shake Shack classics, as well as a selection of frozen custard concretes created specifically for this location, with names and ingredients that pay homage to the local community.

    Jeff, there is a location in my neighborhood on the westside in manhattan.
    the food is great.
    all was jammed inside with a line to get in.
    havent been to ones in fl yet.
    my wife and i live in boca in the winter.
    if you readers want to see what a food goldmine looks like tell them to make sure they get to shake shack when it opens in boca. there is no doubt in my mind that the boca location will be phenomenally successful.

  2. Jay Tendler says...

    When Shake Shack opens in Boca, the Five Guys which is a few minutes away is going to get killed. No comparison in food. Five Guys is good, Shake Shack is awesome.
    I am very familar with this chain from NYC.
    It just does everything right.

  3. HerbK says...

    They couldn’t have picked a better location in Boca. They will do killer business there all day long. They have the juice now to cherry pick locations and are taking advantage of it

  4. SGREEN says...

    The Shake Shacks is NYC are absolutely killing it. Lines to get in all day long.
    The South Beach and Coral Gables stores are also jamming.
    This chain is red hot.
    The location in Boca is amazing.
    You couldn’t want a better spot.
    The center is always busy and is right across the Glades Road from FAU.
    If you havent been to a Shake Shack you must try it.

  5. Slip Marshall says...

    Shake Shack makes BurgerFi, Cg, Five Guys etc look like amateurs.

  6. BurgerLouie says...

  7. Michael K. says...

    Great fast food burger.
    Boca location will prove to be awesome!

  8. RON G says...

    I maybe out of the loop here but until you mention Shake Shack I had never heard of it.
    After reading your article I looked Shake Shack up on the computer and it’s an amazing story. It seems like it’s delivered a cult like following.
    Can’t wait for it to open so I can give it a try.

  9. GBP says...

    Last night I was watching a movie starring Ben Stiller and Eddie Murphy called Tower Heist. One of the scenes takes place in a NYC Shake Shack.
    Like Ron G I hadnt heard of this chain before you wrote about it and couldnt believe that I saw it in a film the next day.
    Everything I read about it makes it sound like a great place.
    I now know that there is one in S. Beach and one in Coral Gables.
    Im going to try the South Beach one next week.

  10. GGG 1859 says...
