Shake Shack is not going to be the only shack at the Westfield Century City mall.

San Diego celebrity chef Richard Blais announced he has signed a lease at the location, where he will open the first Crack Shack outpost in Los Angeles, Eater reported.

Westfield Century City just opened a second slate of new shops last month, following the grand opening of a Macy’s and 30 stores in April. The property is still in the process of its $1 billion makeover, which is expected to be completed later this year.

Crack Shack, known for its fried chicken, is expected to open in spring 2018, but the exact date has not yet been announced. It will be surrounded by a series of other popular food and restaurant openings, including Everytable, Eataly, Randy’s Donuts and Chick-Fil-A.

Crack Shack is expansion mode. It recently opened a Costa Mesa outlet in Orange County. [ELA] – Naiwen Tian
