Second San Diego Shake Shack Location To Open In Mission Valley

June 7, 2017

In addition to an already-announced outpost heading into Westfield UTC later this year, uber-popular The Shake Shack burger chain will open a second San Diego location at 675 Camino de la Reina in Mission Valley.

Celebrity Chef Danny Meyer's "fine-casual" burger chain The Shake Shack will debut its first area eatery in La Jolla within Westfield UTC as part of the outdoor shopping destination's $500 million expansion, anticipated to open on October 12, 2017. When it was announced last fall that the restaurant was coming to America's Finest City, it was known that the company intended to open more locations around San Diego in the future.

The Mission Valley Shake Shack is anticipated to open by year's end in a free-standing building within The Millennium Mission Valley, a mixed-use project that includes apartments, retail and a public plaza. The eatery will be constructed with recycled and sustainable materials. In addition to the regular menu, there will also be frozen custard concretes (think a McFlurry) featuring mix-ins from local food purveyors, as well as beer and wine. The company continues to scout other locations for additional San Diego hubs, including North County, downtown and Liberty Station.

Shake Shack is a modern day “roadside” burger chain known for its 100% all-natural, antibiotic & hormone free Angus beef burgers, griddled-crisp flat-top dogs, cage-free chicken sandwiches, fresh-made frozen custard, crinkle cut fries, beer and wine, and more. Shake Shack has earned a cult-like following around the world.

Originally founded by Danny Meyer’s Union Square Hospitality Group, which owns and operates some of New York City’s most celebrated restaurants including Union Square Cafe, Gramercy Tavern, The Modern at the Museum of Modern Art, Maialino, North End Grill, Blue Smoke, and Marta - Shake Shack started out as a food cart inside NYC's Madison Square Park in 2004 and has since pioneered the creation of a new “fine casual” category in restaurants.

After more than a decade since Shake Shack was born in New York City’s Madison Square Park, it launched its first California location in West Hollywood, Los Angeles in 2016 and now has more than 85 locations around the globe.
