Burger and shake fans in the East Bay, rejoice. Shake Shack is opening a location inside of Oakland's Uptown Station development, according to The San Francisco Chronicle.

Shake Shack plans to take over part of the ground-level retail space at 1955 Broadway in Oakland's Uptown neighborhood, the Chronicle reported.

The eight-story building where Shake Shack will be located was bought by Uber in 2015 as part of a plan to move their headquarters to Oakland, but the ride hailing company sold the building to an Oakland firm in late 2017.

In late 2018, electronic payment company Square signed a lease with the Oakland firm that bought Uptown Station from Uber, putting plans to develop the building back in motion.

The burger franchise has been expanding into the San Francisco Bay Area since it opened its first location in the region in Palo Alto in late 2018. In May 2019, Shake Shack opened its second Bay Area location in Larkspur.

For the uninitiated, the fast casual restaurant chain offers smash-style burgers, shakes and crinkle-cut fries that are moderately priced.

There are also plans to open a location in San Francisco's Cow Hollow and the Chronicle reported that the company is hiring for that location while it is undergoing a city review.
