ST. LOUIS — Another Shake Shack is coming to the St. Louis area!

5 On Your Side’s partners at the St. Louis Business Journal reported the New-York based restaurant chain will take over Pei Wei’s former space at 8885 Ladue Road at the Ladue Crossing Shopping Center. It will occupy a prime location at the southern end of the plaza, they said.

The St. Louis Business Journal said it is not known when the location could open and the City of Ladue has not yet approved the restaurant.

5 On Your Side reached out to Shake Shack on Friday but has not heard back.

The restaurant chain was founded by St. Louis native Danny Meyer. It opened its first location in the St. Louis area in December 2017.
