Shake Shack to Open First-Ever Drive-Thru Location in Central Florida

Where are all of our Shake Shack fans? โœ‹๐Ÿฝ You’re going to absolutely love this little bit of information we recently stumbled across. The beloved burger (and thensome) joint recently announced that its first-ever drive-thru location will open in Orlando, Florida this year. Vroom, vroom! ๐Ÿš—๐Ÿ’จ See now โ€“ good news stories do actually sometimes happen about Florida!

Shake Shack first rolled into the Central Florida area nearly seven years ago (can you even believe it?!) with its Winter Park location, neighboring Trader Joe’s just a few blocks south of the Winter Park Village. The chain has since grown to four locations in the Orlando and Central Florida area (more information on that below). And all of these restaurants–along with every single one of them in the chain’s family globally (over 270 locations across the world)–are walk-in restaurants โ€“ typically in a mall or connected to another business in a strip mall or similar retail environment. But as the title above reads the company is introducing it’s very first drive-thru location…and with many other “firsts” Orlando has been identified as the determined location (with a planned expansion of five-to-eight drive-thrus across the country by mid-2022). WOOT!

So where’s this “firsts of firsts” going to be? The new location will find it’s home at Vineland Point, a new development in Orlando filled with dining, shopping, and entertainment options. Opening in mid-late 2021, Shake Shack patrons can find it at I-4 and Daryl Carter Parkway (in close proximity to the Orlando Vineland Premium Outlets).

We frequent Shack Shack quite often, actually (the Winter Park location), and while the burgers are the jam, we kinda prefer the chicken sandwiches over them. Shhh…. This new drive-thru restaurant will consist of 3,300 square-feet, and will be constructed with recycled and sustainable materials (and restaurant with good food and a good conscience!). It’ll also feature an outdoor patio with ample seating for guests.ย The drive-thru will feature a digital menu board, a two-lane ordering system, and a separate pick-up window for convenience. (We’re hereby coining the nickname “Break Shack” here.)
