Shake Shack has come a long way from being a hot dog cart in Madison Square Park in Manhattan to support the Madison Square Park Conservancy’s first art installation. People started lining up to get a taste of the store’s luscious hot dogs, and soon it opened a permanent kiosk in a park. Today, what was once a “roadside joint,” Shake Shack is now a world-renowned fast food brand that serves up the most delicious burgers, hot dogs, frozen custard, shakes, beer, wine and more.
Known for its 100% all-natural Angus beef burgers, chicken sandwiches, flat-top Vienna beef dogs, fresh-spun frozen custard, crinkle cut fries, craft beer, wine and more, Shake Shack has earned a cult following across America and all over the world. With its fine-dining heritage, commitment to real, premium ingredients, and fun and lively environment, Shake Shack is the burger joint Filipinos have been waiting for.
“It is with great pleasure that we announce the partnership between Shake Shack Inc. and the SSI Group,” says SSI Group President Anton Huang. “With the arrival of Shake Shack in the Philippines, we are excited to be amongst the first in Asia that will be home to the renowned American casual restaurant chain.”
This momentous arrival of one of the most beloved burgers from the US coincides with SSI Group’s 30th anniversary.
Shake Shack Vice President of Global Licensing Michael Kark adds, “Manila is an incredible city; its heart beats with a distinct warmth and hospitality. We are excited to begin the search for our first site in Metro Manila and look forward to becoming part of this community.”
Shake Shack intends to work with local purveyors and producers to create a one-of-a-kind Shake Shack for the Manila community, in keeping with its mission to Stand for Something Good®. The Manila menu will feature Shake Shack’s signature items including the ShackBurger®, Shack-cago Dog®, classic crinkle cut fries, wine, and frozen custard ice cream.
Shake Shack will open its first store in Manila in the first quarter of 2019.
