Shake Shack to Open Second Miami Location in Coral Gables
Already taking over the Middle East with locations opening in Dubai, the UAE, and Kuwait City, Meyer has been scouting a second location in Miami since the first opened on Lincoln Road last June.
Last week, a New York Times story reveals Meyer's thoughts about the area around the University of Miami:
As we crossed Biscayne Bay, Meyer admired the palm-covered islands, with their 1920s architecture. But as the traffic got thicker and the buildings blander, he said: "This strip is so antiseptic. Needs to be cool." Then, "This whole area just gets me nervous."
"It's a sea of dreck," he said, and began reading the names of businesses: "Puritan Cleaners. Hookah Lounge."
Doesn't sound like an area that has what Meyer calls the "Shackness," but looks like the college crowd and lack of quality food options in the area is enough to convince him to give it a shot.
