Shake Shack Starting Construction On First Charlotte Location in Park Rd. Shopping Center


SEC General Contractors are about to break ground on the first Shake Shack location in the Carolinas later this month, according to a recent press release. It’s being built in the heart of Charlotte’s popular Park Road Shopping Center, next to our city’s newest Amelie’s, Viva Chicken, and Chopt locations.

Shake Shack plans on opening the new location by the end of the year.

The legendary franchise first started as a hot dog cart in Manhattan’s Madison Square Park back in 2004 and has since grown to over 80 locations across the country.

This will be Shake Shack’s first location in either of the Carolinas. The closest locations to Charlotte are in Atlanta, Lexington, and the Washington DC area:


Shake Shack has become legendary for their juicy hamburgers, crinkle-cut fries, and of course, their shakes:

They feature a secret menu with random new creations every month:

…as well as some healthier options, including portabella mushroom burgers:
