Sign of impending Shake Shack

The metal sign is up at 20th and Sansom Streets.

Sign of impending Shake Shack


Philly's first Shake Shack - the Danny Meyer-owned, New York-based burger, shake and grown-up beverage bar - is now less than two months away at the corner of 20th and Sansom Streets.

Meyer's people say the opening will be in "early summer," and I believe that something big will be tied to July 4th.

Meanwhile, the metal sign went up on the facade, replacing that attractive "green wall" that Meyer commissioned to make the construction site less of an eyesore. (See previous.)

Also, Meyer is recruiting staff; he had three days of open calls this week.

Previous coverage is here and here.
