Shake Shack to Open First Canadian Location in Toronto

Shake Shack will expand into Canada through the opening of a new outlet in downtown Toronto.

The 5,500-square-foot burger and milk shake restaurant will be located on the corner of Yonge and Dundas streets. The location will open this summer.

New York-based Shake Shack announced its plans in a news release. The company intends to open 35 locations across Canada by 2035.

Shake Shack has partnered with Toronto-based private investment companies Osmington and Harlo Entertainment to develop the chain’s Canadian business.

Since opening its first location in New York City in 2004, Shake Shacked has expanded to more than 520 locations system-wide, including including about 320 in 33 U.S. States and the District of Columbia, and approximately 175 international sites.
