The Role

The Role

Shake Shack, the iconic burger brand, was introduced to New York in 2004 by Union Square Hospitality Group USHG, a dining and hospitality group founded by the famous restaurateur; Danny Meyer, that includes some of New York's most beloved and highly acclaimed restaurants.

Upon opening the doors of its first location in New York City's Madison Square Park, Shake Shack immediately became a neighborhood fixture, with New Yorkers, tourists and people from all walks of life gathering to enjoy some Shack goodness.

Our classic Shack burger is simple, balanced but most of all, flavorful. A buttery soft potato bun combines with the Shack's special burger blend, made from 100% all natural American Black Angus beef to create the perfect burger-to-bun ratio. This succulent and juicy combination is served with American cheese, fresh lettuce, tomatoes and Shack special sauce, and is guaranteed free from hormones and antibiotics. Shake Shack's special technique of 'smashing' the burger on a chrome griddle creates a seared outside and juicy inside.

Our great burger needs to partner with a great fries, hence Shake Shack prime quality crispy golden crinkle cut fries are 100% free of artificial trans fats, making them some of the crunchiest fries around. They are also 25% less fat than most fries, so go ahead, crunch away!

In addition to its unrivalled selection of burgers and quality fries, the Shake Shack menu also includes a variety of thick shakes, and creamy, soft and intensely rich premium frozen custard (ice cream) that are continuously made fresh all day long, so you always receive the best, straight from our machine. Come around the back of the kitchen and have a look!

At Shake Shack we believe there are no shortcuts to quality, so we pride ourselves on sourcing premium ingredients across all our food, and everything is made fresh and cooked to order.

The Shake Shack modern take on the 'roadside' burger Shack ambiance and feel is linked to where it all started at Madison Square Park in New York. This unique feel will carry on with every Shake Shack to open in your neighborhood.
