We're not sure what Troy did to become so lucky to have not only a Chick-fil-A and a soon-to-open Shake Shack, but damn are we jealous.

The chain burger joint opened its first Michigan location in downtown Detroit in the heart of Campus Martius earlier this week to much fanfare and excitement. Today we learned that another Shake Shack will open in Troy on Wednesday, October 25.

The new outpost will feature partnerships with local eateries like Zingerman's in Ann Arbor and Detroit's Sister Pie. There will also be a handful of Michigan brews on tap like Short's and Griffin Claw, according to a press release.

The first 75 people who get in line on the day of opening will receive a free concrete, which is a delicious ice cream treat. And speaking of concretes, 5 percent of the proceeds from the Pie Oh My concrete will be donated to Gleaners Community Food Bank.

The restaurant will be near Somerset at 850 West Big Beaver Road.
