Madison Square Park in New York dates from 1847 but by 2000 it had fallen into disrepair. As part of the renovations, Randy Garutti ran a hot dog stand for three years, and its popularity led to building a permanent kiosk which opened in 2004 serving burgers and milkshakes. It wasnt originally planned as a chain, bur Shake Shacks can now be found around the world. In summer people wait an hour for a meal.
The Company's founder, Satoshi Sakurada opened the first MOS burger in 1972 in Narimasu, Tokyo. Although the chain's most famous creation, the rice burger where rice patties replace the burger bun, did not debut until 1987. You can still visit the original Narimasu location, or any of the 1800 other locations across Japan and elsewhere in Asia.
