The original Shake Shack location will close for five months while it undergoes renovations. 

According to Grub Street, head honcho Danny Meyer will close the Madison Square Park outpost, then reopen it next year with considerable upgrades. DNAinfo says these upgrades include "interior and exterior" kiosks: 

Shake Shack spokesman Edwin Bragg said the much-needed facelift will expand the kiosk's footprint by 4 feet, providing extra room for food preparation. The kitchen will be completely redone, and the basement will be overhauled to create additional storage space. When the fix-up is finished, the Shack will look virtually the same.

Furthermore, Bragg noted that this process will not interrupt use of the park. He added that the new and improved Shake Shack should "hopefully" open in the winter.
