Our Story

Shake Shack sprouted from a hot dog cart in Madison Square Park in Manhattan created by Danny Meyer’s Union Square Hospitality Group (USHG) to support the Madison Square Park Conservancy’s first art installation. The cart was quite the success, with Shack Fans lined up daily for three summers.

Shack Swag

Now no matter where you live, you can show the world your Shack pride.

In 2004, USHG won the bid to open a permanent kiosk in the Park: Shake Shack was born. This modern day “roadside” burger stand serves up the most delicious burgers, hot dogs, frozen custard, shakes, beer, wine and more. An instant neighborhood fixture, Shake Shack welcomed people from all over the city, country and world who gathered together to enjoy fresh, simple, high-quality versions of the classics in a majestic setting. The rest, as they say, is burger history.

Stand for something good

We are the world! We love our planet and all its inhabitants. We’re working hard to lessen our footprint, and promise to keep pushing to make important new strides. We’re committed to extending hospitality beyond the four walls of each Shack into the surrounding community. Thank you for standing with us as we look to the future. See more good

Here's a glimpse of what's going on now:

  • Good Ingredients

    100% all-natural Angus beef, vegetarian fed, humanely raised and source verified. No hormones or antibiotics – EVER. We pride ourselves on sourcing incredible ingredients from like-minded artisanal producers.

  • Good N' Green

    Bottles, cardboard, and plastics are recycled. Our cooking oil is reused to produce clean energy and our kitchen food is composted.

  • Good Bones

    Each Shack is constructed from recycled and sustainable materials. Tabletops sourced from reclaimed bowling alley lanes, walls made of reclaimed antique barn wood siding, booths feature lumber certified by the Forestry Stewardship Council. We use energy efficient kitchen equipment and employ LED lighting throughout.

  • Good Neighbors

    We’re all about our hood! We strive to be the best employers and citizens of each community we call home. Whether partnering with Share Our Strength or working with local charitable organizations to donate 5% of sales of a specific concrete – the Shack is committed to giving back.
