April 2019: Southlake Business Spotlight – Shake Shack

Shake Shack sprouted from a hot dog cart in Madison Square Park in Manhattan, New York to support the Madison Square Park Conservancy’s first art installation. The cart was quite the success. Shack fans lined up daily for at least three summers which inspired the opening of a permanent kiosk in 2004.

After its launch, Shake Shack became the modern day “roadside” burger stand serving up burgers, hot dogs, frozen custard, shakes, beer, wine and more.

The kiosk instantly became known as a neighborhood fixture serving customers from all over the city, country and world fresh, simple, high-quality versions of their favorite classics. The rest, as they say, is burger history.

“We sell burgers, fries and shacks, but what we serve at Shake Shack is hospitality,” said General Manager of Southlake Shake Shack, Shannyn Taggart. “A warm community gathering place is really what we inspire to be for the communities that we are in.”

Shake Shack is proud to stand behind their mission statement which is, “Stand for Something Good” not only by providing great customer service but also serving a high-quality product.

All of their meat is hormone free, antibiotic free, vegetarian feed, ground fresh and does not come frozen. The eggs are cage-free and there is no high fructose corn syrup used in their custards, they only use cane sugar. Their food is also non-GMO.

“Standing for something good and standing for what you feed your family; we feel like that is valuable,” said Taggart.
