Steak ‘n Shake Opens Second Colorado Restaurant

Steak ‘n Shake celebrates the grand opening of its second restaurant in Colorado in the city of Sheridan at 3502 River Point Parkway. The restaurant opened its doors Thursday, May 10, 2012 at 10 a.m.

Drive Incremental Sales with Drinks

McDonald’s signs boast about the incredible number of hamburgers—now many billions—it’s served over the years. But with the customer clamor for specialty beverages growing louder, the fast food icon may one day brag about the number of peppermint mochas sold.

When McDonald’s launched the McCafé line in 2009, it was both a warning signal to Starbucks and a resounding affirmation that specialty beverage menus would be a fixture at quick serves all over the country.

And signs are pointing to beverages becoming even more important to menus in coming years.

Who is Sardar Biglari?

When Sardar Biglari moved with his family to the U.S. in 1984, Steak ‘n Shake was already a verified favorite on the quick-serve scene. In fact, the tried-and-true Midwestern chain was celebrating its 50th anniversary the year Biglari immigrated to San Antonio from Iran.

Today, 28 years later, Biglari is chairman and CEO of Biglari Holdings, the parent company of Steak ‘n Shake, Western Sizzlin, and investment management firm Biglari Capital Corp., a group of subsidiary companies that together are worth hundreds of millions of dollars.

And he’s only 34 years old.

Steak ‘n Shake Hits Broadway

Company introduces new prototype in its Big Apple debut.

Steak ‘n Shake opened its first New York City restaurant on January 12, and the chain used the opportunity to debut its new Steak ‘n Shake Signature counter-service prototype.

The new design is a leaner outfit that does away with the all-night schedule, some menu items, and table service. Customers will instead find a small, 22-seat, counter-service-only Steak ‘n Shake that offers a new organic beef hamburger, a high-tech drink machine, hand-cut fries, and beer and wine.

Steak 'n Shake Debuts on Broadway

Steak 'n Shake Continues Westward Push, Opens in CO

Steak ‘n Shake celebrated the grand opening of its first restaurant in the state of Colorado in the city of Centennial, at 8271 S. Quebec. The official ribbon cutting ceremony takes place on Nov. 17 at 10 a.m. and will be hosted by franchisees Mark Clark and Connie Caruso.

“We are quite excited to bring Steak ‘n Shake to Colorado,” says Sardar Biglari, CEO of Steak ‘n Shake. “Each time we have opened in a new market over the last two years there has been a tremendous turnout which is building an ardent following.

Fine-Dining Trends that Are Headed Your Way

In 2015, the single most popular dish on quick-serve restaurant menus will be a sumptuous curried goat sandwich served with fried lentils and a crispy tamarind-orange flatbread.

Shortly thereafter, thick, frosty duck confit milkshakes and turnip tots will take the fast food world by storm.

Then, by 2017, drive-thru windows will be overwhelmed by customers determined to get their hands on the latest menu sensation: big, brimming bowls of real Spanish-style paella, replete with fresh mussels and clams and saffron-infused rice.
