Shake Shack to Open First Kentucky Location at The Summit at Fritz Farm in Lexington, KY

Jeffrey A. Bayer
BIRMINGHAM, AL — Bayer Properties announced Shake Shack®—the critically acclaimed, modern-day 'roadside' burger spot that began in 2001 as a hot dog cart in New York City—will open its first-ever Kentucky location at The Summit at Fritz Farm in Lexington.

The Summit at Fritz Farm, a modern, experiential, walkable development, will combine national retail brands, local chef-driven concepts, the first mixed-use food-hall concept in the region, 

Class A office space, condo-quality apartments and a fashion inspired boutique hotel. Infused with the local essence of Lexington, the project will open in March 2017.

“Having Shake Shack come to Lexington is a testament to how special the city is, and how special The Summit at Fritz Farm is going to be,” said Jeffrey Bayer, President and CEO of Bayer Properties. “Looking at how well-received Shake Shack has been at its other locations, we think that those who live, work and visit The Summit at Fritz Farm are going to love the experience the restaurant will bring to this community.”

The one-level, 3,000 square-foot Shake Shack will anchor “The Green”, a communal space area designed by Kentucky native and award-winning garden designer Jon Carloftis that will be the heart and soul of the property.

 Phase I will also include 306 condo-quality apartments, approximately 125-room fashion inspired boutique hotel as well as 48,000 square feet of Class A office space.
