New York City's Shake Shack Heads to Mexico City

October 17, 2018

Shake Shack is a modern day "roadside" burger stand known for its 100% all-natural Angus beef burgers, chicken sandwiches and flat-top Vienna beef dogs, spun-fresh frozen custard, crinkle cut fries, and more.

New York City - The cult of Shake Shack looms ever larger: New York City's beloved burger chain is expanding to Mexico, with its first store slated for Mexico City in 2019. Partnering with Mexican hospitality group, Grupo Toks, the company intends to have 30 stores in Mexico by 2028.

Shake Shack is a modern day "roadside" burger stand known for its 100% all-natural Angus beef burgers, chicken sandwiches and flat-top Vienna beef dogs, spun-fresh frozen custard, crinkle cut fries, craft beer and wine and more. With its fresh, simple, high-quality food at a great value, Shake Shack is a fun and lively community gathering place with widespread appeal.


McDonald's, Burger King, Carl's Jr., and Wendy's have stores in the region already, proving there's a hunger for American burger brands. McDonald's was the first to expand into Mexico, debuting in Mexico City in 1985. But scores of local restaurants, including chains like Ruben's Hamburgers, also serve hamburguesas, with over-the-top variations that stuff toppings like pineapple and hot dogs between the buns.

Since the original Shack opened in 2004 in NYC's Madison Square Park, the company has expanded to more than 180 locations worldwide, including 70 international locations in cities including Tokyo, Seoul, Dubai, and Moscow. Shake Shack is known for adopting local flavors into each new location's menu - could this mean sides of mayonnaise-laden elote and a 'concrete' (frozen custard with mix-ins) blended with churros are on the way?

In keeping with its mission to Stand For Something Good®, Shake Shack intends to work with local purveyors and producers to create a one-of-a-kind Shack for the Mexico City community. The menu will feature Shake Shack's signature items including the ShackBurger®, Shack-cago Dog®, classic crinkle-cut fries, beer, wine and frozen custard ice cream.
