2020 was a year during which food chains had to modify their menus and their delivery systems to adapt to the new trends brought by the pandemic, but those aren’t the only reasons for new ítems. What new change has Shake Shack just announced?
During the last years, clients have been changing their preferences, and restaurants and fast-food chains have had to include more variety in their offers. The shift towards meatless products is one of those trends and a greater tendency to eating chicken, instead of meat, is another.
According to Thrillist, Shake Shack is kicking off the new year with another important addition that brings some sweet and spicy heat to its menu.
The fast casual restaurant chain based that started out as a hot dog cart inside Madison Square Park in 2001 announced on Tuesday that it's unleashing a whole Korean-inspired menu, available now through April 5 at locations nationwide.
