Founded by St. Louis native Danny Meyer, Shake Shack will begin operation March 30
The St. Louis Blues announced Tuesday that Shake Shack will be the newest addition to their concession stand offerings at Enterprise Center. Shake Shack, founded by St. Louis native Danny Meyer, features classic American roadside fare, made with premium ingredients and was inspired by Meyer’s St. Louis roots. The Shake Shack stand will begin operation on Wednesday, March 30 for the Elton John concert.
“Over the last several years, we have made it a priority to provide a more diverse array of quality food offerings for our fans,” said Chris Zimmerman, President and CEO of Business Operations of the St. Louis Blues and Enterprise Center. “The addition of the ever-popular Shake Shack further enhances this progress and joins a stellar line-up of local restaurant partners and other fan favorites.”
“For someone who grew up in St. Louis, taking in a Blues home game nearly every Saturday night even before I could drive, it’s a real thrill to bring Shake Shack to the Enterprise Center,” said Danny Meyer, Shake Shack founder and CEO Union Square Hospitality Group. “We’ve been dreaming about this opportunity since first bringing Shake Shack to St. Louis, and it’s an honor to serve our burgers, shakes and fries alongside so many other outstanding food options at Blues games and concerts.”
Enterprise Center becomes the third NHL arena in the country with a Shake Shack stand and the first Shake Shack stand to feature artwork by a local artist. St. Louis artist Adam Bertels was commissioned to create a mural that captures the energy that Enterprise Center delivers through sports and entertainment. Several St. Louis icons are also showcased throughout the mural, including Meyer.
Shake Shack joins an already impressive line-up of food partners at Enterprise Center, including local favorites Chicken Out, Farmtruk, Hi-Pointe Drive-In, Mission Taco Joint and Sugarfire. Shake Shack will be located on the plaza level at Portal 3.
