Shake Shack

In order to bring its food offerings to Canada, Shake Shack has teamed up with Toronto-based private investment companies Osmington Inc. and Harlo Entertainment Inc. We’ll finally be able to try what the U.S. has been raving about, in 2024.

The new location will also collaborate with local purveyors and producers to build a one-of-a-kind Shack experience that is unique to the Toronto community.

We can only hope the chain will open its doors soon as they are currently hiring for managerial roles in Toronto.
