Shake Shack is planting a flag at Los Angeles International Airport to cater to burger lovers on the go.
The New York-based chain is set to open its LAX location next Wednesday in Terminal 3 and will serve customers daily from 4:30 a.m. to midnight.
Shake Shack, with a menu that also features chicken, hot dogs and frozen custard, has been expanding over the last several years, with 134 locations currently open.
“We’ve built such a strong community in L.A. since we opened our first Shack last year at West Hollywood,” said Michael Kark, the chain’s vice president of Global Licensing. “We’ve always had hopes for an LAX restaurant and are thrilled that it’s becoming a reality. We’re excited to share the Shake Shack experience with even more Angelenos and with travelers from around the world.”
The LAX location will be operated by HMSHost in partnership with developer Westfield and Los Angeles World Airports.
“We’re raising the bar for what’s possible at an airport, and with the help of our partners ,we’re adding Shake Shack to our list of delicious LAX eats that guests will be able to enjoy,” said Trevor Daley, LAWA’s deputy executive director and chief of external affairs. “Shake Shack will redefine the travel experience and will surely become an LAX must-stop spot.”
