There are also Shake Shacks at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport in the Delta terminal and at Los Angeles International Airport.
Shake Shack called the Atlanta airport location “an important step in our travel venue growth,” according to a written statement from Shake Shack vice president of global licensing Michael Kark.
There is no alcohol served at the Hartsfield-Jackson location.
The idea for a Shake Shack at Hartsfield-Jackson was first proposed in 2015. But the airport contracting process went through delays, and was canceled and restarted. The deal was approved in 2016, nearly two years ago.
