Danny Meyer's NYC-based blockbuster burger chain is finally making the move to Denver. Shake Shack is trekking to the Mile High City in late 2017 and its location will be in the RiNo Art District. This is a city that loves its burgers and Shake Shack is a brand that, much like In-n-Out, is well sought after.
In classic style for the company, the RiNo Shack will offer all the staples, from 100% all-natural Angus beef burgers and cage-free chicken to the famed crinkle-cut fries and spun-fresh frozen custard. Plus, there are promises of frozen custard concretes that will be featuring local Denver food purveyors.
The exact location is not yet revealed but, if the history of the company is any guide, we predict a free-standing building that also allows for parking, perhaps on Brighton Boulevard, perhaps on Larimer closer to 35th. We do know that the Shack will be constructed with recycled and sustainable materials and that chairs and booths will be made from lumber certified by the Forest Stewardship Council, and tabletops will be made from reclaimed bowling alley lanes from Brooklyn’s CounterEvolution.
Stay tuned for details.
