Shake Shack Is Opening A Fulton Market Location

If you build it, the burgers will come. That's been the case in the fast-growing Fulton Market district, anyway, where Shake Shack is set to open its fourth Chicago area outpost in 2017, according to Crain's. The 3,220 square-foot restaurant from the fast-food chain and developer Shapack Partners will join the neighborhood's already burger-heavy roster of eateries (Grange Hall, Au Cheval, etc.) next to the Green and Pink Lines' Morgan and Lake Station.

Details on the new location come after New York-based Shake Shack CEO Randy Garutti said the company planned to "keep growing in the Chicago area" last month. Chicagoans can currently get their Shake Shack shake and crinkle fry fix in River North, inside the Chicago Athletic Association Hotel or out in north suburban Skokie.

The restaurant, which will go up after the developer tears down an existing structure this summer, will be yet another addition to the neighborhood that's been blowing-up new business-wise recently, and a welcome fast food option in an otherwise sit-down restaurant and bar kind of area.
