It’s official: we’re headed to the city where east meets west! We couldn’t be more stoked to announce we’re bringin’ the goods to Singapore in 2019. 🙌 Stay tuned for deets on our upcoming Shack in the Jewel Changi Airport! 🇸🇬
Posted by Shake Shack on Tuesday, 9 October 2018
How many people grab a quick burger before they fly off at Changi Airport? Singaporeans love their burgers. Just look at how quickly some of them sell out whenever McDonald’s, Burger King, KFC, or Carl’s Jr. releases something new – case in point: the Nasi Lemak burger.
Even though we’ve gotten some great burgers over the years, we’re still missing some of the most decadent and delicious burgers from the United States, and North America in general. The good news is you may not have to wait much longer. The bad news is your waistline may start growing even before you go on your next holiday.
Shack Shack has officially announced that they are coming to Singapore! Set to arrive in 2019 at the Jewel Changi Airport, the popular NYC-based burger joint is well-known for its 100% all-natural Angus beef burgers, chicken sandwiches and flat-top Vienna beef dogs, among other cheat meal-worthy items that will wreck your diet plans.
“We are executing our strategic plan in Asia with plans to launch in Singapore, Shanghai, and Manila in 2019,” said Michael Kark, Vice President of Global Licensing. “For years we’ve been looking for the right opportunity to enter the Singaporean market given its regional importance, and we’re thrilled to have found the right strategic partner and an ideal launch location. Our flagship site will be in the stunning Jewel Changi Airport, home to more than 2,000 trees, harkening back to Shake Shack’s birthplace in NYC’s Madison Square Park.”

Not sure what to pick if you intend to be one of the first to try their burgers? The menu will feature Shake Shack’s signature items including the ShackBurger®, Shack-cago, Dog®, classic crinkle-cut fries, beer, wine and frozen custard ice cream.
Along with A&W, also set to open in 2019 at Jewel Changi Airport, it sounds like it’s time to hit the gym hard with some HIIT and weightlifting classes so you can truly enjoy the binge by the time they open in Singapore.
