Shake Shack coming to Winter Park



Winter Park’s burger wars will get added sizzle when New York-based Shake Shack moves into the yet-to-be-built, Trader-Joe’s-anchored retail complex on North Orlando Avenue and Morse Boulevard.

Look for a heated rivalry between BurgerFi and Shake Shack, both of which offer a similar experience (crisp-edged burgers, shoestring fries, superthick shakes). Rumors still abound about a Shake Shack opening in Downtown Disney when it morphs into Disney Springs in 2016.
