Shake Shack opens first Japan store in 2016


New York - Together with its Japanese licensee Sazaby League Ltd., Shake Shack Inc. will open the first-ever Tokyo Shake Shack in 2016. Shake Shack and Sazaby League intend to open one store in Tokyo and 10 total stores in Japan through 2020.

Shake Shack is a critically acclaimed, modern day “roadside” burger stand known for its 100% all-natural, antibiotic-free Angus beef burgers (no hormones added ever), griddled-crisp flat-top dogs, fresh-made frozen custard, crinkle cut fries, beer and wine, 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 absolutely thrilled to bring our first store to Tokyo,” said Randy Garutti, CEO of Shake Shack. “For years, a tremendous amount of fans have asked us when we would come to Japan. We are incredibly honored to partner with Sazaby League, a world-class, proven operator with over forty years of expertise including tremendous success leading Starbucks’ first international venture. We are truly humbled to become a part of Japan’s thriving food scene.”
