ABC7: Shake Shack Opens 2nd California Location in Glendale
By ABC7.com Staff
GLENDALE, Calif. (KABC) — Shake Shack launched its second California restaurant with the grand opening of its Glendale location on Friday.
The newest burger stand is located at 252 S. Brand Blvd., across from The Americana at Brand.
The popular New York-based burger restaurant opened its first California location at the corner of Santa Monica Boulevard and West Knoll Drive in West Hollywood back in March.
Shake Shack is known for their smashed burgers, fried chicken sandwiches, hot dogs, shakes, crinkle-cut fries and dog-friendly treats.
The chain has developed a cult-like following since it first opened in New York City’s Madison Square Park more than a decade ago.
Shake Shack said its Glendale location will donate 5 percent of sales from its Invictus concrete – which features vanilla custard, Compartes Coney Island chocolate chunks, salted caramel sauce and crumbled sugar cone cookie – to Ascencia, a nonprofit that is helping to end homelessness in Glendale.
Shake Shack plans to open a third Southern California location in downtown Los Angeles in 2017.
