County Executive Johnny Oleszewski will cut the ribbon Saturday, Feb. 20 on a new Shake Shack in the heart of Towson.
The new burger joint will be located at Circle East, 1 East Joppa. As part of the “Stand for Something Good,” campaign, Shake Shack will be donating $1 for every sandwich sold on opening day to Student Support Network, a local organization that improves the lives of Baltimore County students living in poverty by providing food, other basic necessities and advocacy.
Shake Shack is a chain of fast-food restaurants started in the early 2000s by New York City restaurateur Danny Meyer. The menu started with just burgers, hot dogs, fries, and milkshakes made-to-order with fresh ingredients, but has grown to include chicken burgers, frozen custard, grilled cheese and more.
The new Towson location will be the first in Baltimore County and the sixth in Maryland. The other Baltimore-area Shake Shack is located at the Inner Harbor across from the National Aquarium.
