Restaurant chain Shake Shack is reportedly planning to expand its presence in the UK with the opening of new store in Oxford.

The new restaurant is planned to be opened in 2024, reported Oxfordmail citing undisclosed contractors who are working on converting the former Pandora jewellers store in Cornmarket Street into restaurant.

Currently, the chain owns in the region of 16 stores in the UK, with most restaurants located across London.

The gourmet fast-casual restaurant chain has more than 377 locations worldwide.

Shake Shack was cited by Oxfordmail as saying in a statement that the company has partnered with illustrator and muralist Ellie Fryer, on a “unique illustration” for the exterior of the building. 

A statement said: “Incorporating some of Shake Shack’s signature menu items with an ‘olden’ twist, the artworks focus on bringing to life the stories, legends and cultural heritage of an Oxford past.”

A contractor at the site added: “This is going to be a Shake Shack selling burgers and shakes.”

The new restaurant in the UK will offer flat-top dogs, ‘ShackBurgers’, ‘ShackMeisters’, ale and shakes, among others. 

Earlier this year (2023), Shake Shack opened its first location at Atlantis Paradise Island resort in the Bahamas.

The restaurant, named Shake Shack Atlantis, offers a wide range of menu items, including made-to-order Angus beef burgers, crispy chicken, hot dogs, hand-spun milkshakes and house-made lemonades. The restaurant features a full 360-degree hexagon-shaped bar and floor-to-ceiling glass walls that offer up-close views of Atlantis’ The Dig aquarium.
