FRANKLIN, Tenn. (Oct. 14, 2020) –Shake Shack, the popular modern-day “roadside” burger stand, will open its first Williamson County location at McEwen Northside, the 45-acre mixed-use environment offering fully integrated commercial, retail, residential and greenspace in Cool Springs. Slated to open 2021, this will be Shake Shack’s second location in Tennessee, joining the Green Hills space that opened in 2018.
Shake Shack is a critically acclaimed, modern-day “roadside” burger stand known for its 100% all-natural Angus beef burgers, chicken sandwiches and griddled flat-top dogs (no hormones or antibiotics – ever), fresh-made frozen custard, crispy crinkle-cut fries, and more. A fun and lively community gathering place with widespread appeal, Shake Shack has earned a cult-like following around the world.
“We are excited to officially welcome Shake Shack as a tenant at McEwen Northside,” said Phil Fawcett, partner with Boyle Investment Company. “Shake Shack will be a great addition to the impressive list of diverse tenants at McEwen Northside and will add to the unique dining experience the mixed-use district offers.”
“We are thrilled to be expanding our Tennessee footprint with our new Franklin location,” said Andrew McCaughan, chief development officer of Shake Shack. “For the first time ever, we look forward to joining the dynamic community at McEwen Northside and bringing Franklin fans our famous ShackBurgers.”
Shake Shack is part of an impressive list of commercial and retail tenants, including Mitsubishi Motors, Perry’s Steakhouse, Club Pilates, Jeni’s Ice Cream, Tiff’s Treats, PROSE Nail Salon, Just Love Coffee, Vintage Vine 100 and Williamson, Inc.
