Shake Shack to open first UK train station restaurant

Burger brand Shake Shack is to open its first restaurant in a UK train station this summer.

The restaurant at London St Pancras International will offer the group's core menu items, including breakfast burgers, crinkle-cut fries and ShackMeister Ale, alongside items unique to the station site.

It will be the 16th UK location for the US chain since it arrived in Covent Garden in 2013.

Shake Shack started out as a hot dog cart in New York run by Randy Garutti, the director of operations for Danny Meyer's Union Square Hospitality Group.

Its first kiosk site launched in New York in 2004 and it now operates 430 restaurants in the US and worldwide.

Shake Shack's UK restaurants are largely based in London but it has also opened at Lakeside shopping centre in Essex, Gatwick Airport in Sussex, Oxford and Cardiff.

Meyer remains chairman of Shake Shack, which held an IPO in 2015.
