DETROIT (WJBK) - Shake Shack opens this year for Detroit burger fans near Campus Martius. The company's signs have been installed now, possibly signaling an earlier opening date.
The New York City-based fan favorite will open a restaurant at Bedrock's First National Building at 660 Woodward just off Campus Martius this year. Last May, the company said it would open in the summer. However, on Wednesday, a crew was spotted installing the sign above the door at the address.
Does that mean it's coming earlier than the summer? We don't know. The company has not put out any new information about when it opens.
Shake Shack is known for shakes, all-beef burgers, chicken and crinkle cut fries.
They have locations across world including London, Instanbul, Dubai, Tokyo, Moscow and its original location in New York City.
"We're proud to be part of the incredible renaissance happening in Detroit," said Shake Shack CEO Randy Garutti last May. "We're looking forward to being an active participant in this creative and forward-looking community. It's an honor and a privilege for Shake Shack to add to the dynamic fabric of this great city."
Since the original Shack opened in 2004 in NYC's Madison Square Park, the company has opened multiple locations in 14 states and the District of Columbia, as well as international locations including in London, Istanbul, Dubai, Tokyo, Moscow and more.
The restaurant is slated to open in late winter 2017, but an exact date has not been set.
