SHACK ATTACK ? For Burger Week, Eater National talks to Shake Shack CEO Randy Garutti on the growing chain's expansion. On what he and Danny Meyer ask themselves in making decisions: "Would you make the same decision if you were one restaurant? That keeps us being the anti-chain, it keeps us thinking small and using our culinary heritage. Decisions that affect this place need to be decided on as if it's only this place. This is the Upper East Side Shake Shack and decisions need to make sense here. And that makes it hard to grow." [Eater National]
