Shake Shack Shares Sizzle On Market DebutShake Shack, a former New York City food cart which is now a gourmet burger chain challenger to McDonald's, rocketed upon its stock market debut on Friday. Shake Shack has hit on a winning formula with millennials by serving up hormone and antibiotic-free beef, crinkle-cut fries, shakes and beer.
