Burger lovers, this is not a drill. Shake Shack announced it will open in the Philippines!
The popular New York-based fast food restaurant chain Shake Shack announced their arrival in the shores of the Philippines next year.
“Mabuhay, Manila! We’re officially headed to the Philippines! We’ll be bringin’ the goods to the Pearl of the Orient in spring 2019. Let the Countdown begin!” the food chain announced on their Facebook Page.
In a report made by Rappler, Shake Shack will be handled and run by the SSI Group Incorporated. They recently signed a development and license agreement with Shake Shack incorporated.
You can expect to find the New York favorites in their Manila menu. It is reported that the local menu will feature signature items from the restaurant chain such as ShackBurger, Shack-cago Dog, classic crinkle-cut fries, beer, wine, and frozen custard ice cream.
Vice President of Global Licensing Michael Kark stated they are excited to search for the location of their first branch in the Philippines.
Shake Shack started as a small food cart founded by Danny Meyer in Maddison Square Park in 2001 and moved to an official store in 2004. Since then, the restaurant became the fastest growing chain with 100 locations in America alone and additional 59 locations in other parts of the world.
