On July 22, Commercial Officer Tyler Hacking and Commercial Specialist Jinjoo Lee supported New York City-based Shake Shack Burger at the Opening Ceremony of its restaurant in Gangnam Seoul by coordinating the participation of U.S. Ambassador Mark Lippert.  The Ambassador took part in the ribbon cutting ceremony along with Randy Garutti, CEO, Shake Shack Enterprise International, Hee-soo Hur, Senior Managing Director, SPC Group, and other VIPs from both companies.  More than 1,500 customers visited the restaurant on the first day, many waiting in line all night for a chance to enjoy the restaurant’s delicious burgers and shakes.  More than 80 photo-based articles, from the likes of Yonhap News, MBN, Chosun Biz, and Money Today, featured the event online.
