What a deal – download an app, get a free burger. Shake Shack is celebrating release of its first-ever mobile ordering app by offering a FREE ShackBurger when you use the app the first time. The new Shack App is available nationwide, including, of course, in New York City, where the worldwide chain began.
The Shack App is being launched for iOS devices only. An Android version is in the works.
To get a free ShackBurger, just download the Shack App, create an account, and use the promo code “shackappy” at checkout. The free ShackBurger can be redeemed at any Shake Shack location in the USA except at airports, stadiums and ballparks, through Tuesday, February 28th, 2017.
According to the company’s press release, the app was developed to “elevate the in-Shack guest experience, resulting in shorter pick up times and convenient mobile ordering. Guests can now order Shake Shack when they want it and right from their phone. With the new Shack App, guests can pick their food, choose an available pickup time and it will be cooked-to-order and timed to their arrival. All pickup times are in fifteen minute increments. Check the app for availability throughout the day. More power to ya.”
The Shack App features Shack classics including all-natural beef burgers, flat-top dogs, chicken, frozen custard, crinkle cut fries and more, and includes all the mobile ordering essentials we’ve come to expect on such apps:
- find Shacks via a location finder;
- pick from their favorite orders;
- keep track of food allergies;
- access nutritional information;
- see the latest events and promos;
- connect to all Shake Shack social media channels and share feedback.
Plus one more special touch – you can view the live Shack Cam at the O.G. Shack in New York City’s Madison Square Park, the original Shake Shack location.
Note also that Shake Shack is raising prices –
Burger prices are going p about 25 cents to cover the higher cost of the city’s new minimum wage, to pay employees higher wages. Eater reports that employees at Shake Shack’s NYC locations will now be making $12.50 an hour, $1.50 more than the city’s new minimum wage. The company also raised some manager salaries to just above the proposed federal overtime limit. All Shake Shack employees are also eligible for health insurance plans and 401k matching, as well as other benefits, the chain’s founder, Danny Meyer, told Business Insider.
Shake Shack’s classic ShackBurger will cost $5.55 in NYC, 26 cents more than its current price. In New Jersey and on Long Island, the burger will cost $5.39, a 10-cent increase. The priciest burger, the 800-calorie ShackStackm which includes a beef patty and a fried portobello mushroom stuffed with cheese, will cost $9.95, a 36 cent increase. Menu items, like fries and frozen custard shakes, will not go up in price.
