Shake Shack About to Take Up a Stake in San Francisco

Shake Shack is a burger, fries and shakes joint out of Madison Square Park in New York City with a massive following in California, and is now about to have its first diner in San Francisco. Shake Shack started as a hot dog stand in New York City as a way to fund a park art project, and now it is taking over the old Real Food grocery store at 3060 Fillmore – 11,000 square feet of upscale, earth friendly burger diner to be shared with the Rumble Fitness studio.

So, chow down on a dripping good burger with maybe a glass of red wine, or a strawberry shake, then head on over to the gym to hit the biking or rowing machines. The perfect nextdoor balance is now available to San Franciscans.

CenterCal Properties that purchase the building for Shake Shack is foretelling that the diner and gym will catalyze shopping between Union and Chestnut Streets. This will be the 161st location for the chain.
