Confirmed: Shake Shack Is Opening in BGC

Here's what you need to know.

( Pretty much everyone and their mothers went crazy when Shake Shack announced that they're opening a branch in the Philippines in 2019. While they were mum at first as to where exactly this outpost would be, here's some exciting news: Shake Shack is opening on the ground floor of Central Square in Bonifacio Global City, and it will have an al fresco dining area.

Shake Shack has kicked things off with a huge installation of the ShackBurger bag, which probably already clued in the more astute BGC regulars about the burger joint's location. They're also collaborating with artist Jappy Agoncillo to create two murals that capture both Shake Shack and Manila's vibrant spirit. The first, on the store facade along 5th Avenue, will feature Manila's famous monuments and landmarks. The second mural inside the store will depict Manila's cityscape.

Shake Shack has been steadily expanding globally, bringing exclusive items to their international branches. Their Hong Kong outpost, for example, offers milk-tea flavored shake, which makes us even more curious to know what our special menu item will be (maybe something with mango or ube?) 

The burger joint will be brought to the Philippines by retail giant Stores Specialists, Inc., which has also brought big brands like Zara, Bershka, MUJI, GAP, Old Navy, and MAC Cosmetics to the country.

Even without an exact opening date yet, we're already buzzing with excitement!
