Danny Meyer is slowly working his way all over the East Coast, as his burger chain Shake Shack announces their next move: Boston.
Back in November, blogs were atwitter about the possibility of Shake Shack moving into the Boston Common, with some negative reactions including one blogger's quip, "Shake Shack on the Common? What a load of frappe."
The New York Times last reported that while some Bostonians do love themselves a good Shack Stack, they were looking for more Boston representation in the Common. So it looks like Shake Shack took the cue and buddied up to a college for comfort.
According to the press release, "Shake Shack’s first-ever Boston location will sit along bustling U.S. Route 9 at 33 Boylston Street, Chestnut Hill. The new location will be situated among one of the region’s premier shopping destinations, which is currently being revitalized with a new village-like streetscape complete with tree-shaded pedestrian walkways and outdoor dining."
This will be another addition to the growing empire, which already has locations in New York City, Miami, Washington, D.C., and Westport, Conn., not to mention Dubai, UAE, and Kuwait City, Kuwait.
