UK-based ShakeAway to open first US stores in PB, La Jolla

United Kingdom-based ShakeAway announced Wednesday it plans to open its first U.S. milkshake bar in San Diego this weekend.

The company will open a La Jolla store on Friday and another in Pacific Beach on Saturday. The stores are just over 1,000 square feet and have outside seating.

The two San Diego locations will be the first in the United States. The company has plans to open franchises in New York City and Atlanta later this year.

“Our first shop opened in the sunny seaside town of Bournemouth almost 15 years ago,” said Peter Dickson, CEO of ShakeAway. “San Diego felt like a natural place to expand ShakeAway, and we are thrilled to be part of the beachside communities of Pacific Beach and La Jolla.”

The stores were designed and constructed by England-based Shakeaway Ltd., and San Diego architect Carlos Wellman.

The two stores were tenant improvement projects and took approximately eight weeks to renovate.

Professional skateboarder and San Diego native Tony Hawk will be at ShakeAway’s opening in La Jolla on Friday, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Hawk will be naming an official milkshake, with proceeds donated to the Tony Hawk Foundation, a nonprofit that helps build skate parks in low income areas. ShakeAway’s goal is to raise a minimum of $15,000.
