Shake Shack burger chain to open new U.S. locations in Tampa

Shake Shack will open a new U, California-based location in Tampa, Fla., the company announced Wednesday.

The Tampa location will open in the spring.

The company is leasing the space from its parent company, McDonalds, which bought the company in December for $3.4 billion.

“We’re excited to be bringing this great restaurant to the Sunshine State, where it belongs,” said Shake Shack co-founder, Chip Berube.

The burger chain, which has locations in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco, will also open a store in Orlando, Fla.

“Shake Shack is a true innovator, and we look forward to working with local leaders to build on this new partnership,” the company said in a statement.

“This is a new chapter for Shake Shack and we’re grateful to be a part of it.”

The company’s first location opened in Austin, Texas, in May 2016.

The first U.K. and Canada-based restaurant opened in November 2017.
