Shake Shack, a burger restaurant giant which originally launched in New York City, is looking to establish its second Long Island location, in New Hyde Park, reps told Long Island Weekly. The company opened its first Long Island spot in Westbury in November 2012.

“We’ve received such a warm welcome in Westbury,” said Edwin Bragg, Shake Shack’s marketing director. “We’ve had a lot of interest from Shake Shack fans in the many nearby villages and towns.”

According to Bragg, the company makes an effort to ensure each new location is tailored to the community, taking “great care to build each Shack with custom architectural design, including forward-thinking structural elements and compelling eco-friendly design.”

“We want to be a community gathering place in New Hyde Park and for the surrounding area,” he added. Shack reps will meet with local civic leaders in New Hyde Park on Tuesday, Sept. 23 at 7:30 p.m. in Clinton G. Martin Park.

“Shake Shack is very eager to speak with residents who have questions,” Shake Shack’s legal counsel Diana Prevete said. “There will be two representatives of Shake Shack there to answer questions. They’re willing to be transparent and upfront about how things are going to operate.”
