Shake Shack is working on a second Atlanta location, and it looks like a debut could be coming in the not-too-distant future. Good-guy restaurateur Danny Meyer’s New York-based burger chain has posted a want ad on Cragslist seeking employees for its forthcoming restaurant at Perimeter Mall. The ad describes the new outpost as "opening soon."

Reached for comment, a representative for Shake Shack could not offer further details: "We don’t have any specifics yet." When the Dunwoody location was announced back in March, Shake Shack set a goal of opening before the end of 2016.

The wildly popular chain first came to town with a restaurant at the Shops Buckhead Atlanta in September 2014. Past rumors have swirled about possible locations at Ponce City Market and the Atlanta Braves’ new Cobb County ballpark, but those haven’t come to fruition.
