Shake Shack started as a hot dog cart in Madison Square Park in Manhattan. The cart was such a success, a permanent kiosk opened three years later in 2004.

“This modern day “roadside” burger stand serves up the most delicious burgers, hot dogs, frozen custard, shakes, beer, wine and more. An instant neighborhood fixture, Shake Shack welcomed people from all over the city, country and world who gathered together to enjoy fresh, simple, high-quality versions of the classics in a majestic setting,” the restaurant’s website says.

Shake Shack announced earlier this year it was opening a restaurant in Louis Armstrong International Airport’s new terminal.

Shake Shack has locations in 27 states and 12 countries.
