Shake Shack and Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream Set Up Shops in Chicago

Shake Shack is coming. Get in line now.
Two cult favorites are finally opening outposts in Chicago. The more highly anticipated of the two, is New York City burger empire Shake Shack. Rumors swirled for a while about the iconic burger and shake shop taking over the River North Harley-Davidson dealership. This week, Eater broke the news and DNA Info confirmed it when they reached spokesman Greg Waters. Waters said, "We're pleased to report that Shake Shack is coming to Chicago in late 2014."

In the more immediate future, Lakeview will welcome the Columbus-based gourmet creamery, Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream. The ice cream is currently available at Whole Foods and specialty retailers around Chicago, but this will be the first Chicago storefront. It will occupy the former location of Safari Cup coffee shop, and is expected to open in August, according to DNA Info.

  1. Columbus, Ohio based Jeni's, not "Cleaveland".
