The store will be near Sinnonhyeon Station, Subway Line No. 9, which is on the same main street in Gangnam as Gangnam Station, Subway Line No. 2.

SPC, the operator of bakery chain Paris Baguette, will be operating the burger store under an exclusive contract with Shake Shack.

Shake Shack started out in 2001 as a hotdog cart in Madison Square Park, New York City. It was opened by restaurateur Danny Meyer.

Popular items include its classic cheeseburgers and Portobello mushroom burger.
