Shake Shack opening two locations in Jersey City

by newjerseyshores | Nov 30, 2022

Shake Shack at Battery ParkOne of New York’s most iconic burger shops is coming to Jersey City. Shake Shack will open its Newport Mall location on Wednesday, November 30, according to Newport Mall’s website. The Newport Shake Shack will be located on the third level food court. It’ll be open from 11am to 10pm.

But that isn’t the only Shake Shack Jersey City location. Back in June, the Historic Downtown Special Improvement District (HDSID) confirmed via an Instagram post that Shake Shack is taking over the space formerly occupied by Subway on the corner of Grove and Columbus. Although construction is still ongoing for the Grove Street Shake Shack, last month the company posted a restaurant manager job application for their new outpost at 318 Grove. There is no estimated opening date for either location.

Shack Shake originally started as a hot dog cart inside New York’s Madison Square Park in 2001. In 2004, it evolved into a kiosk with hamburgers, hotdogs, fries, and milkshakes. Since then, the fast-casual chain has expanded with outposts throughout the country. This will be Shake Shack’s first Jersey City location, although the Shake Shack food truck has operated in Jersey City multiple times in the past. In addition, their Hoboken location at 111 Washington Street also delivers to JC.

In terms of food, Shake Shack is known for its signature ShackBurger, but you can also get a variety of chicken sandwiches, grilled cheese, fries, and hot dogs. Non-meat eaters can even order Shake Shack’s ‘shroom burger.

Shake Shack joins the likes of Gong Cha, which also opened in the mall’s food court back in February.
