Shake Shack Expansion Plan Derails

Don't expect to see a second Shake Shack location any time soon. A little birdy who lives in Central Park tells us, "Danny Meyer's Union Square Hospitality Group entered into negotiations with the NYC Parks Department to put a Shake Shack in Central Park, but a deal could not be reached. The sticking point was the lease term, with USHG wanting a long-term deal, but the parks department not willing to give any more than 5 years. USHG has a 9 year lease on shake shack in Madison Square Park." Those wanting to wait in a ridiculous line for an average burger will just have to go to the original. Let us know how it goes.

It's probably to their benefit to have a short term lease. This ridiculous burger-craze will bust at some point and I wouldn't want to be stuck with a long-term lease if people stop buying burgers! Also, no food coming off a grill is worth that wait - there is a Wendy's across the street, and I'm sure a street-meat guy somewhere near the park. Just as tasty.

I totally agree with you. I don't get the whole Shake Shack obsession. The burgers are fine, but they're not worth waiting more than 2 minutes in a line for.
