Istanbul Prepares for First Shake Shack

On the heels of Bloomberg Businessweek's outing of America's young burger billionairess, Eater reports that Shake Shack will open in Istanbul later this year. The New York-based chain from Danny Meyer's Union Square Hospitality group currently operates burger joints across North America and the Middle East. The Spring 2013 project will be the company's first restaurant in Turkey.

News of further Shack expansion should come as no surprise to fans of the chain. In addition to the overwhelming number of restaurants that have sprouted up in the past few years, an iPhone App that can predict the length of a prospective diner's line-waiting time also exists.

The company has announced plans to open a location in London as well.
