Shake Shack heading to London

Danny Meyer and his Union Square Hospitality Group announced today that Shake Shack will open a location in London’s Covent Garden in mid-2013.

The modern-day "roadside stand," which opened its Philly outpost at 20th and Sansom Streets over the summer, sells burgers, flat-top dogs, frozen custard, beer, and wine.

Shake Shack will be located in the historic Market Building near the Royal Opera House. Shake Shack’s outdoor seating will flank the columns on South Row, and the Shack will extend into the expansive glass atrium on the Piazza, where additional seating will be available.
