Shake Shack this week officially confirmed its eighth Atlanta area Shack location will be opening in the Westside Provisions District, at 1168 Howell Mill Road, Suite E. The NYC-based chain is set to replace YEAH! Burger. When What Now Atlanta first uncovered the plans earlier this year, Shake Shack declined to comment.
“Our West Midtown area Shack will put us in a part of Atlanta that’s constantly evolving and growing,” Josh Kalson, Area Director of Shake Shack, said in a prepared statement. “It’s always exciting to expand the Shake Shack brand across Atlanta and create a community gathering place for our loyal and new guests. The Shack will be amongst some of our favorite stores and restaurants and will be focused on walkability to neighbors, alongside digital convenience and to-go orders with Atlanta’s second walk-up window so our guests can take advantage of our signature burgers, chicken and shakes in our store, on our patio or across the property.”
Targeting a late 2022, early 2023 opening, the new 2,500 square-foot space will also boast an expansive outdoor patio area and a “Shack Track” walk-up window — Shake Shack’s digital pre-ordering and fulfillment experience — for convenient pick-up. The walk-up window will give guests the ability to pre-order via the Shack App and pick up their food at the window to enjoy on the patio or around WSPD. Guests will also be able to place orders to-go inside of the Shack or pre-order via app and web for pickup on the designated shelf inside.
