Steak ‘n Shake Celebrates 80th Birthday with GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS®
Official Attempt, New Birthday Cake Milk Shake
INDIANAPOLIS, June 3, 2014 – Steak ‘n Shake is inviting America to a birthday party for the record books at 1 p.m. EDT/12 p.m. CDT, Saturday, June 7, when it will celebrate its 80th birthday by attempting the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS® title for the “Largest Birthday Sing-Along.” Steak ‘n Shake expects more than 20,000 customers to sing “Happy Birthday” simultaneously across its 529 U.S. locations.
As they participate in the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS® attempt, guests can enjoy Steak ’n Shake’s new Birthday Cake Milk Shake for half price. The limited-time-only shake is filled with moist, yellow birthday cake and sweet buttercream frosting and topped with festive sprinkles.

- Special Edition 80th Birthday Hat: Everyone knows and loves the classic Steak ‘n Shake paper hats, and for a limited time, Steak ‘n Shake is featuring a Special 80th Birthday hat for customers.
