WE’RE SHACKIN’ UP IN THE EMERALD CITY! SHAKE SHACK TO OPEN ITS DOORS IN SEATTLE MID-2018

Aug 9, 2017

What’s shakin’ Seattle?! Shake Shack® is thrilled to announce it will be setting up shack in Seattle in mid-2018. The first-ever Washington Shack will join downtown Seattle’s dynamic South Lake Union neighborhood. Located at 2115 Westlake Avenue, the Shack will be situated in a striking freestanding building, just minutes away from Amazon Headquarters.

Shake Shack is a critically acclaimed, modern day “roadside” burger stand known for its 100% all-natural Angus beef burgers and chicken sandwiches (no added hormones or antibiotics – ever), griddled flat-top dogs, fresh-made frozen custard, crispy crinkle-cut fries, craft beer, wine and more. A fun and lively community gathering place with widespread appeal, Shake Shack has earned a cult-like following around the world

“It’s a dream come true to bring Shake Shack to Seattle!  This city has held a special place in my heart since the early days of my career living here and working as the General Manager of Canlis”, said Randy Garutti, Shake Shack CEO.  “I love coming back here and seeing the continued growth of the city and its dynamic food scene. We look forward to building a community gathering place for this great city.”

The South Lake Union Shack menu will feature all the Shack classics, including the ShackBurger®, crinkle-cut fries and hand-spun shakes, plus a selection of frozen custard concretes in collaboration with local food purveyors.

As part of Shake Shack’s mission to Stand For Something Good®, Shake Shack sources only high quality, premium ingredients from the best ranchers, farmers, bakers and food purveyors. The beef is 100% all-natural Angus, never frozen, vegetarian fed, humanely raised and source verified. The chicken is 100% all-natural cage-free and the flat-top dogs are 100% all-natural Vienna beef. No hormones or antibiotics – ever – all served on a non-GMO potato bun. The fries are crinkle cut with zero artificial ingredients and the vanilla and chocolate frozen custard use only real sugar, no corn syrup, and milk from dairy farmers who pledge not to use artificial growth hormones.

In keeping with Shake Shack’s commitment to green architecture and eco-friendly construction, the South Lake Union Shack will be constructed with recycled and sustainable materials. Booths will be made from lumber certified by the Forest Stewardship Council, and table tops will be made from reclaimed bowling alley lanes.
