Shake Shack to Open New Chicago Location

Chicago’s West Town neighborhood will be home to a new Shake Shack. 

The burger chain plans to open its fourth Chicago location near Lake and Morgan streets in the Fulton Market district. 

The New York-based company leased a 3,220-square-foot space at 185 N. Morgan St., Crain's Chicago Business reports, alongside the CTA's elevated Pink and Green Line stations.

Shake Shack's vice president of development, Andrew McCaughan, is a native of Chicago's North Side, telling Crain's, "Having grown up in Chicago, I've really watched Fulton Market come alive over the last few years."

"We're really excited about everything that's going on in the area—not only from a food perspective but more so how it's evolved to add office workers, hotels and other businesses," he said in an interview with Crain's. "With everything that's coming around us, we're just excited to be there."

It's coming to a spot with some pretty heavy burger competition, as famed favorites Au Cheval and Grange Hall Burger Bar are both just blocks away. 

The new West Town Shake Shack is expected to open in 2017.
