Shake Shack, the New York City burger chain, plans to open a second Columbus-area location.

The chain expects to open a restaurant in the Graduate Hotel, 750 N. High St. in the Short North.

A Shake Shack also is expected to open in the summer at Easton Town Center. The fast-casual chain has more than 160 restaurants.

Shake Shack, which started as a food cart in New York City, falls among the ranks of Five Guys and Smashburger as fast-expanding burger chains.

The Graduate Hotel will have 171 rooms and is expected to open in the fall.
