Perhaps we can thank Global Warming for this one? Jon Vandegrift, the Shake Shack’s General Manager, has confirmed, in writing, the rumors that the Shack is working on a year-round plan. Let’s just go straight to the email, shall we?
There is truth to the rumor. We will be staying open throughout the winter, but we’ll be closing around the holidays and through the New Year this year. We’ll re-open shortly after that.
The heat lamps are being sorted out, so while it looks extremely likely, it’s not 100% certain yet. Our PR Department is planning a release soon to give some details about what we’re doing. I’d prefer to wait until we release that to give any other specific details.
