Shake Shack's first Baton Rouge location opens Monday
BATON ROUGE - Shake Shack, the wildly popular burger chain based out of New York, has opened its first restaurant in the capital area.
In August, the company announced its first-ever Baton Rouge restaurant on Bluebonnet Boulevard, just outside the Mall of Louisiana. The new location officially opened Nov. 14.
"We're incredibly excited to bring Shake Shack to Baton Rouge," said Andrew McCaughan, Chief Development Officer at Shake Shack. "Shake Shack is what we call fine casual, raising the bar for food quality and hospitality across the quick service industry. We're looking forward to serving up our delicious burgers and shakes to the community. Our Shack team is currently hiring for more amazing hospitality champs to join the Shack fam."
The company, which has accrued a self-proclaimed "cult-brand" following over the past 18 years, has more than 300 locations nationwide, mostly focused along the east and west coasts.
There were only three locations in Louisiana prior to the Baton Rouge opening, all located in the New Orleans area.
