Shake Shack Opening a Joint in King of Prussia Mall

Go West, young cheeseburger palace. In June, Shake Shack unveiled its Center City spot. Last week, it announced a Drexel location. Now, King of Prussia.

So we already know that the University City Shake Shack expansion will be at 3200 Chestnut Street (in the new Chestnut Square development) and that it’s looking at an opening this summer. But now we can also announce that King Of Prussia will be getting a Shack all its own, with a brand-new, free-standing shack going up near the King of Prussia Mall (because, seriously, where else would they put it?) that should be up and slinging burgers and concretes by the fall.

But is the KOP Mall ready for the low-key, faux-industrial hipness that a Shake Shack brings? Or, come to think of it, might this move convince Philly’s sworn young urbanites (like me) to occasionally trek out to an actual, so-20th century mall? [Foobooz]
