Shake Shack Hopes To Open Next Month, But For Now, Enjoy A Cup of Free Hot Chocolate

For students bogged down by studying for exams and local residents braving the bitter December air, Shake Shack has a cup of bittersweet hot chocolate ready to warm you up.

While the highly anticipated arrival of Shake Shack in Harvard Square is still several weeks away, fans of the burger franchise can satisfy their current cravings tomorrow, as Shake Shack will be giving away free cups of house-made Dark Hot Chocolate from noon to 5 p.m. in their future location at 92 Winthrop Street.

"We think this will be an awesome way for us to connect with the local community and let everyone know we’re on the way," wrote Greg Waters, Senior Manager of Marketing and Communications for Shake Shack, in an email to The Crimson.

Although the restaurant was originally expected to open this month, Waters wrote that an official date has yet to be finalized and predicted that Shake Shack will likely open its doors the first week of January.
