Shake Shack Is Finally Moving Into the City

US burger chain Shake Shack has confirmed it is to open in the City’s new 45 Cannon Street development. The group — which is owned by American restaurateur Danny Meyer’s Union Square Hospitality Group, and moved to London in 2013 — will for the first time take on a property in the City of London business district.

MCA reports that the company has agreed a 15 year lease for the 335 square metre site, to be its eighth in London, where it will form part of a “varied mix of food and beverage operators” that will also include offerings from Black Sheep Coffee, Pali Kitchen, and Freshii. It would appear to have taken at least a little inspiration from the nearby Bloomberg Arcade, which opened last autumn. There are four businesses that are still to open at that development: Brigadiers, by JKS Restaurants, Andrew Wong’s casual format restaurant, Ekte Nordic Kitchen and an unknown other.

Mark Rosati, Shake Shack’s culinary food director, told Eater London last year — ahead of the opening of the chain’s Cambridge Circus restaurant — that the company acknowledges it is no longer “new” to Londoners. In response, he posed a question: “How do we keep upping our game? We’re doubling down.”

Representatives from Shake Shack did not immediately respond to request for comment.

More soon.
