The international mission of Shake Shack is to export the best of the American fine casual experience, spreading Enlightened Hospitality to communities around the world. Being a New York-based brand, with USHG’s history of creating some of New York City’s favorite restaurants, Shake Shack has a great opportunity to grow internationally. Shake Shack seeks partners whose values and standards of excellence are fully aligned with our vision, culture and brand. Shake Shack’s domestic company-operated development plan is complemented by a focused effort to increase its international footprint with operationally-experienced, proven licensees.
Whether domestic or international, we’re passionate about securing vibrant sites and creating unique designs that give each Shake Shack a handcrafted look that’s locally focused and appropriate for its immediate community. We take great care to build each Shack with custom architectural design, including forward-thinking structural elements and compelling eco-friendly touches when possible within the context of a larger building (with Shack in the role as retail tenant).
