Steak ‘n Shake is the most established name in the premium burger and milkshake sector of the US restaurant industry. 

For those interested in investing in the best performing premium burger and milkshake brand, Steak ’n Shake is the business to join!


About us

Steak ‘n Shake is a classic American brand serving premium burgers and milkshakes. Founded in 1934 in Illinois, Steak ‘n Shake is the leader in the fast casual ‘better burger’ segment of the restaurant industry, offering its famous, original Steakburger™ and its delicious handdipped Milk Shakes.

The hand-crafted Steakburger, freshly prepared to each customer’s order, is made with 100% beef, and contains no preservatives or artificial ingredients. All the food on the menu is prepared according to the customer’s specifications. Steak ‘n Shake establishes and operates both corporate and multi-unit franchise territories.


Until now Europe has been lacking a gourmet burger chain offering premium burgers at an excellent value. Currently there are either fast food chains selling low quality burgers at low prices or small, independent restaurants selling high quality burgers at high prices.

The Steak ‘n Shake proposition offers premium burgers at great prices. Steak ‘n Shake is now actively seeking single and multi-unit operators to expand the company’s network of over 530 locations in the US into the UK.
