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 ranchers, farmers, bakers, and food purveyors who all share our values. We’re dedicated to ensuring that ALL our meat is antibiotic and hormone free.

Our burgers are made with 100% Angus beef that’s humanely raised, vegetarian fed, and source verified. Our chicken is real white-meat that’s fresh, never frozen. Our flat-top dogs? 100% beef from the pros at Vienna® Beef in Chicago. Our fries are crinkle-cut golden potatoes with no trans fats. And our vanilla and chocolate frozen custards only use real sugar (no high-fructose corn syrup) and milk from dairy farmers who pledge not to use artificial growth hormones.

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. The six main areas we support are: hunger relief, arts and culture, education and family, environment, animal welfare, and health.

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, plus they 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.
