We’re Proud to Show Our True Colors!
Earlier this year, we were named one of the “Best place to work for LGBTQ Equality” and earned a 100% on the Human Rights Campaign’s 2019 Corporate Equality Index, a designation that highlights the core of our ethos here at Shake Shack. Pride is particularly exciting for us this year as it marks the launch of our internal diversity and inclusion initiative, All-In. We’re committed to providing equal opportunities for success, removing obstacles and fostering a culture of diversity, inclusion and empowerment to ensure that Shake Shack continues to be a great place to work. We can’t wait to celebrate our amazing team who made it possible!
We strive to be the best employers and citizens of each neighborhood we call home. Every Shack donates 5% of sales of a specific concrete to a local charity partner, and our Shack Gives Back volunteer program encourages our teams to get involved in causes they feel passionate about—from animal welfare to education—in their communities.
We pride ourselves on sourcing incredible ingredients from like-minded ranchers, farmers, bakers and food purveyors. Our burgers are made with 100% all-natural Angus beef—vegetarian fed, humanely raised and source verified. The Chick’n Shack™ is 100% all-natural cage-free chicken. Our flat-top dogs? 100% all-natural Vienna beef. Our fries are crinkle cut Yukon potatoes, with zero artificial ingredients. And our vanilla and chocolate frozen custard recipes use only real sugar, no corn syrup and milk from dairy farmers who pledge not to use artificial growth hormones.
