YONKERS, N.Y. -- Shake Shack, the iconic burger place founded by famed Restaurateur Danny Meyer of NYC's Union Square fame, opens Friday, July 22 at Cross County Shopping Center in Yonkers.
This is the the chain's first Westchester location and will feature a frozen custard location-specific item called the Cross County Crunch (vanilla custard, salted caramel sauce, Mast Brothers Shake Shack dark chocolate chunks, chocolate toffee and malt powder).
The Shack will also be spinning up a Shake Shack classic, the Shack Attack (chocolate custard, fudge sauce, chocolate truffle cookie dough and Mast Brothers Shake Shack dark chocolate chunks, topped with chocolate sprinkles).
As part of Shake Shack’s mission to "Stand For Something Good," the eatery will donate five percent of sales from the Cross County Crunch concrete to Yonkers Partners In Education (YPIE), a nonprofit that works to increase the number of Yonkers Public School students who complete a post-secondary program that prepares them for a successful career.
Guests can quench their thirst with a selection of local craft beer from Yonkers Brewing Company, Bronx Pale Ale, Broken Bow Brewery and Southern Tier Brewing Company, in addition to the Shack-exclusive ShackMeister Ale from Brooklyn Brewery. Wine lovers can sip on Shack Red and Shack White wine from Frog’s Leap Winery.
In keeping with Shake Shack’s commitment to thoughtful, well-crafted and responsible design, the Cross County Shack’s tabletops are made from reclaimed bowling alley lanes by CounterEvolution and chairs are designed by Uhuru using sustainable materials. Booths are crafted by Staach using lumber certified by the Forestry Stewardship Council. The Shack also features a spacious outdoor patio with picnic tables.
