Stand For Something Good

We Stand For Something Good® in everything we do. That means carefully sourced premium ingredients from like-minded purveyors we admire and love; thoughtful, well-crafted and responsible design for its place; and deep community support through donations, events and volunteering. Thanks for standing with us!

Good Ingredients

We pride ourselves on sourcing incredible ingredients from like-minded ranchers, farmers, bakers and food purveyors. Our burgers are made with 100% all-natural Angus beef—vegetarian fed, humanely raised and source verified. The Chick’n Shack™ is 100% all-natural cage-free chicken. Our flat-top dogs? 100% all-natural Vienna beef. Our fries are crinkle cut Yukon potatoes, with zero artificial ingredients. And our vanilla and chocolate frozen custard recipes use only real sugar, no corn syrup and milk from dairy farmers who pledge not to use artificial growth hormones.

Good 'n' Green

So fresh and so green, green. Every Shack recycles all bottles and plastics, whether you sort or we do the sorting post-collection. It’s the most efficient way to make sure ZERO recyclable material ends up in landfills. Our cooking oil is also reused to produce clean energy and our kitchen food is composted where locally possible.

Good Bones

Each Shack is constructed thoughtfully and purposefully to fit its unique environment, using a creative design approach that creates places and experiences like nowhere else. Think walls made of reclaimed antique barn wood siding, one-of-a-kind murals commissioned from local artists, living green walls and lighting installations inspired by local surroundings. All good in the wood!

Good Neighbors

We strive to be the best employers and citizens of each neighborhood we call home. Every Shack donates 5% of sales of a specific concrete to a local charity partner, and our Shack Gives Back volunteer program encourages our teams to get involved in causes they feel passionate about—from animal welfare to education—in their communities.

Shack Gives Back

Our teams donate more than 2,000 hours a year to serve meals to the hungry, mentor kids in need, clean up parks and much more, all for the betterment of their Shack’s community.

Community lies at our core. The five main areas we support are: hunger relief, arts and culture, education and family, environment, animal welfare and health.
