The newest San Diego County outpost will open as early as year's end in a 2,854 square-foot space within The Beacon La Costa in Carlsbad. The shopping center also houses Lofty Coffee and La Costa Wine Company and will soon add a new branch of Trust Restaurant Group's The Wise Ox Butcher & Eatery and an outpost from national scoop shop Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams

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. Shake Shack now has more than 250 locations around the world. 
Shake Shack is expected to by the end of the year at 7720-7790 El Camino Real in Carlsbad. For more information about Shake Shack, visit
