Concessions International and Shake Shack celebrated the grand opening of Shake Shack on Monday, October 29 at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, Concourse A near Gate 28. The long-awaited Shake Shack is a joint venture between CI and H&H Hospitality, an Atlanta Airport Concessions Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (ACDBE).
Shake Shack is a critically acclaimed, modern day “roadside” burger stand known for its 100 percent all-natural Angus beef burgers, chicken sandwiches and flat-top Vienna beef dogs (no hormones or antibiotics—ever), frozen custard, crinkle cut fries, and more. A fun and lively community gathering place with widespread appeal, Shake Shack has earned a cult-like following around the world. Shake Shack opened its first Atlanta location in Buckhead in 2014 and its second location in Perimeter Mall in 2016.
The grand opening included a ribbon cutting ceremony with CI’s CEO Donata Russell Ross, Randy Hazelton, CEO of H&H Hospitality, John Berberich, Global Director of Strategic Initiatives, Shake Shack and city of Atlanta and airport officials. Travelers also enjoyed delicious Shake Shack samples, live music, and giveaways.
