Fledgling burger brand Shake N Burger, which is part of NYC Partnership, is to open its debut site, in Doncaster.

The company will open the site at the Frenchgate Shopping Centre on the site of the former Ed’s Easy Diner unit after agreeing a deal with The Frenchgate Partnership.

The new 2,600sq ft restaurant, which will be on the upper level of the centre’s South Central Square, will have about 100 covers and is set to open at the end of May.

It will offer “freshly made, traditional American fare including fried chicken, burgers and pulled pork alongside a range of classic side dishes”.

Shake N Burger founder Lee Edwards said: “Frenchgate shopping centre is an ideal location for our debut site and we are excited to start sharing our fantastic and authentic food in Doncaster. We feel lucky to join the strong dining line-up at a time of great investment and redevelopment within the centre, which we are only set to benefit from.”

Time Retail Partners and Rawstron Johnson acted for Frenchgate while Shake N Burger acted for itself.
