Leaders of the Shack

The heart and soul of each Shake Shack is our dedicated team.  Questions, comments and high-fives welcome!


We’re all about our hood!  We’re committed to extending hospitality beyond the four walls of this Shack and into the New Haven community.

We’ll donate 5% of the sales of our Pie Oh My concrete to The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp, a nonprofit dedicated to providing “a different kind of healing” to seriously ill children and their families, free of charge.
