Steak ‘n Shake, famous for the Original Steakburger™ and hand-dipped Milk Shakes, celebrated the grand opening of its restaurant at 4201 Wisconsin Ave., in Sedalia on Monday, May 5 with an official ribbon cutting ceremony hosted by Jorge Guevara & Ed Guevara, representatives of GUESA USA Investments; as well as Sedalia Mayor Stephen J. Galliher, Angie Thompson and her ambassadors from the Sedalia Area Chamber of Commerce, and numerous Steak ‘n Shake employees.
Jim Flaniken, SVP of Marketing, commented, “We are thrilled to be opening a new Steak ‘n Shake in Sedalia. It is also very exciting that this location will showcase our newest freestanding restaurant design. In addition to its classic, timeless and transcendent design qualities, the restaurant also provides the theatre inside to showcase the preparation of our famed cooked-to-order Steakburgers and indulgent hand-dipped milkshakes made the old fashioned way. This open kitchen layout reinforces the brand’s motto, ‘In Sight it Must be Right’.”
Steak ‘n Shake, founded in 1934 in Normal, Illinois by restaurateur Gus Belt, is the pioneer of the “better burger” segment of the restaurant industry. In addition to showcasing the new design, Steak ‘n Shake continues its 80-year-old tradition of serving a variety of Steakburgers and Milk Shakes including the newest and tastiest offerings- the Pepperoni Pizza Steakburger™, the Snickers® and Snickers® Peanut Butter Squared Milk Shakes as well as the new amazing $4 Menu. The $4 Menu includes seven new Steakburger meals, four new Footlong Hot Dog meals, and three new Steakburger Shooter® meals, all served with fries for $3.99.
