Shake Shack is opening its first location in Utah and, judging by social media reactions, residents are pretty excited.
Utah’s first Shake Shack will likely open this summer, according to Wadsworth Development. The company announced Tuesday that it signed a lease at 11000 South and State Street in Sandy and that renovation has started on the old Valley High School.
News spread quickly among Utah residents who had previously had to wait until they were in Las Vegas, Phoenix or on the East Coast to enjoy the franchise’s famous shakes, burgers and crinkle fries:
One tweet — which we won’t link to because of profanity — went so far as to say the news “cured my depression for the day.”
According to its website, Shake Shack began as a hot dog cart in Madison Square Park in Manhattan to support the Madison Square Park Conservancy’s first art installation. After three summers of long lines, the company opened a kiosk in 2004, eventually expanding to store fronts across the United States.
