Shake Shack, a New York-based restaurant chain with a worldwide presence, will soon be offering burgers, shakes and fries at PNC Arena in Raleigh.
The newest restaurant in the venue will join the Shake Shack at Waverly Place in Cary as at least one of two in the Triangle.
The arena, home to the Carolina Hurricanes and North Carolina State Basketball, along with other sporting events, concerts and more, said in a tweet on Sunday that the restaurant would open soon, but did not specify a timetable.
The news comes as Shake Shack was already exploring another Triangle location.
The burger chain is considering a storefront in Chapel Hill in Eastgate Crossing at 1800 E. Franklin St., The News & Observer reported earlier this month.
The restaurant wants to renovate a vacant 3,000 square foot outbuilding formerly occupied by Zoes Kitchen, which closed in 2019, according to The N&O.
A project developer from the real estate group that owns the location has asked the Chapel Hill Community Design Commission to approve a series of changes to the building’s exterior and parking lot, The N&O reported.
