Shake Shack expands to Logan Circle and Navy Yard


Shake Shack opened another location in the DMV area today. The popular burger joint can now be found  near Logan Circle at 1400 14th Street, NW.

In addition to Shake Shack’s popular hamburgers, hot dogs, and shakes, the Logan Circle Shack is spinning up a selection of local frozen custard concretes: Logan Swirl (vanilla custard, salted caramel sauce, Pollystyle toffee shortbread and chocolate toffee), the all-time fan favorite Shack Attack (chocolate custard, fudge sauce, Baked & Wired brownie, Mast Brothers dark chocolate chunks, and chocolate sprinkles) and Pie Oh My (vanilla custard and slice of Livin’ The Pie Life seasonal pie).

As part of Shake Shack’s mission to Stand For Something Good, 5% of sales from the Pie Oh My concrete support Casey Trees, a nonprofit devoted to restoring, enhancing and protecting the tree canopy of DC. Casey Trees.

Also setting the Logan Circle Shack apart is its space for a large outdoor patio, complete with picnic tables and greenery.  Also, in keeping with Shack Shack’s commitment to green architecture and eco-friendly construction, the inside tabletops are made by CounterEvolution using reclaimed bowling alley lanes; chairs are designed by Uhuru using sustainable materials; and booths are crafted with lumber certified by the Forest Stewardship Council. The Shack also features a wood ceiling installation inspired by the DC city grid.

The DMV area is now the Shack Shake’s second largest market outside its home in New York City. “The [Shake Shack] brand really resonates with people in this area,” said Andrew McCaughan, VP for Development., who attended the ribbon-cutting at the new Logan Circle location.

The first local Shake Shack opened in Dupont Circle in 2011.  Logan Circle is now the ninth location in the DMV. And that number will grow to 10 next week when the company opens yet another location in the Navy Yard neighborhood.
