Shake Shack Philippines Turns 5!

Since then Shake Shack has opened in 7 locations in Metro Manila, expanded the menu to include juicy chicken sandwiches (white and dark meat!), an exclusive Ube Shake and limited-time culinary offerings and launched their own ordering site at And who can forget, the one-day only Chef Collaboration last November 2023 with Toyo Eatery?

High fives all around! The Shack Shack pioneer team celebrates five amazing years of Shack goodness in the Philippines!

Reaching our 5-year milestone is an incredible achievement, and we owe it to our growing Shack community. We’ve been through a two-year global pause, and it was the hard work from our dedicated Shack teams and the continuous support from the Shack fans that kept us going and being the driving force behind our success. And for that, we’re truly grateful,” shares SSI Group, Inc. President and CEO Anton Huang.

A Shack Fiesta unlike any other

Proudly keeping it real with the best, premium ingredients, Shake Shack‘s limited-time birthday menu is inspired by a Filipino favorite, Sisig! From May 10 to July 10, 2024, savor local flavor at all Manila Shacks for dine-in, takeaway, delivery, and online ordering:

  • Sink your teeth into the Crackle Shack Burger (P385)—a 100% all-natural Angus beef patty topped with sisig sauce, red onion, green chili, and crispy bagnet chicharron. The sisig sauce is a harmonious blend of savory, tangy, and slightly spicy flavors, reminiscent of the rich, sizzling goodness of sisig. With a right balance of acidity from calamansi, depth from soy sauce, and a kick from chili peppers, the sauce elevates every bite of the burger, creating a burst of crispy and meaty flavors .
  • The Crackle Shack Fries (P290)— are crinkle-cut fries smothered with sisig sauce, red onion, spicy green chili, and crispy bagnet chicharron.
  • Dubbed Crackle Shack by Jose Simbillo, the winner behind the Name that Burger Giveaway, these limited-time offerings will leave you with a satisfying cracklin’ crunch to every bite. And what better way to wash them down than with these local thirst quenchers:
  • Guava Lemonade (P170 for small and P210 for large) – Shackmade lemonade blended with sweet guava puree. Available starting May 1 and for a limited time only.
  • ShackMeister Ale (P200, 330ml bottle) – a light, hoppy beer, exclusively brewed for us by Engkanto Brewery

Shack and the Arts

Shake Shack stands firm in its commitment to Stand For Something Good through its continued partnership with Ayala Foundation Inc., benefiting CENTEX, to provide holistic educational programs that promote student, parent and teacher development for underserved Filipino children.

Ayala Foundation is dedicated to our mission to build communities that thrive. Supporting DepEd through CENTEX, we aspire to help students realize their full potential and contribute to national development,” said Tony Lambino, President of Ayala Foundation.

As a headlining component of its 5th Anniversary campaign, Shake Shack collaborated with local talented illustrator and designer Jethro Olba together with Ayala Foundation and CENTEX for the Shack Meets Art: Shack X Centex Design Competition.

Celebrating in style! Shake Shack collaborated with artist Jethro Olba to create limited edition swags for the 5th Anniversary in the Philippines.

Held at CENTEX Batangas last March 22, the competition saw eight groups competing to design the newest Shack Swags. The winning design showcases the Shack Jeep and Shack Fiesta characters drawn by Jrex Mendoza, Driana Krystal Banta, Sophia Ysabelle Castillo, Mel Arexiandrei Maranan and Princess Elyza Raz. Recognized for his distinctive style characterized by squiggly lines and artwork inspired by pop culture of yesteryears, Jethro Olba lends a playful and nostalgic touch on the design to render an updated look to the Shack PH visual icon. These visual cues will be featured in the Shack tees and sticker packs of which 5% of its sales from May 10 to 17 will go to CENTEX.

This creative collaboration with Olba can be extensively seen on the other Shack Anniversary swags featuring fun tote bags and umbrellas as well as on the Crackle Shack menu packaging. A visual narrative of the joy and nostalgia associated with local fiestas (or festivals), Olba’s design depicts a whimsical imagery of bayanihan or the Filipino communal spirit whilst embracing diversity, inclusivity and youth.
