Shake Shack, the restaurant chain, is said to be strategizing for further growth in the United Kingdom by introducing a new location in Oxford.
According to Oxfordmail, undisclosed contractors involved in converting the former Pandora jewellers store in Cornmarket Street into a restaurant have reported plans to open the new establishment in 2024.
At present, the chain possesses approximately 16 establishments in the UK, with the majority of these restaurants situated throughout London.
The gourmet fast-casual restaurant chain boasts a global presence with over 377 establishments worldwide.
Shake Shack has joined forces with illustrator and muralist Ellie Fryer to craft an exclusive illustration for the exterior of the building, as reported by Oxfordmail.
A statement said, “Incorporating some of Shake Shack’s signature menu items with an ‘olden’ twist, the artworks focus on bringing to life the stories, legends and cultural heritage of an Oxford past.”
A contractor at the site added, “This is going to be a Shake Shack selling burgers and shakes.”
The new restaurant in the UK will introduce a delectable menu, including flat-top dogs, ‘ShackBurgers,’ ‘ShackMeisters,’ ale, shakes, and more.
Earlier this year, Shake Shack made its debut by opening its first location at Atlantis Paradise Island resort in the Bahamas.
Shake Shack Atlantis, the restaurant’s name, boasts an extensive menu selection that encompasses made-to-order Angus beef burgers, crispy chicken, hot dogs, hand-spun milkshakes, and house-made lemonades. Additionally, the restaurant is characterized by a full 360-degree hexagon-shaped bar and floor-to-ceiling glass walls, providing diners with captivating up-close views of the renowned Atlantis’ The Dig aquarium.
