Shake Smart announces two new Penn State locations

Friday, July 31, 2020

Shake Smart will be making healthy eating convenient on campus at Penn State, with a location inside the IM Building and a second location inside the White Building.


Shake Smarts menu includes a variety of healthy, affordable and convenient food options perfect for the college, on-the-go lifestyle. Shake Smart offers freshly blended protein shakes, organic acai bowls, cold brew coffee, wholly oatmeal, overnight oats, greek yogurt and all-natural peanut butter & banana sandwiches. Products are all focused around whole food ingredients and a balance of nutrients making the product offering perfect for post workout nutrition or a healthy meal or snack while on your way to class. Living a healthy lifestyle should never be a compromise, which is why all of Shake Smart’s menu and product offering has been designed around 4 key components- Nutritious, Delicious, Affordable and Convenient.


Finding food options that can be tailored to meet each individual’s taste preferences, nutritional goals, or dietary restrictions can be a challenge when dining out… and even more challenging on most university campuses. Through Shake Smart’s Self Order system, ordering takes place through a user friendly customer facing iPad where individuals have the entire menu at their finger tips and can order and customize products to meet their unique needs or preferences. Nearly the entire menu can be customized to be vegan, vegetarian, gluten free or lactose free making Shake Smart a great option for students with dietary restrictions.


Started at San Diego State University in 2011, Shake Smart was founded by two students who recognized the struggles of being confined to traditional on campus dining options and also trying to find healthy and convenient foods while living a fast paced college lifestyle. Their vision was to make healthy eating more accessible to students and to provide products with a balance of nutrients focusing specifically on protein unlike most traditional blended drink concepts. Their solution? Healthy eating should fit everyone’s lifestyle, which is why Shake Smart was designed to provide better for you, on-the-go nutrition for college students! Shake Smart is currently located primarily on university campuses and is serving college students in 8 different states nationwide.


Started by students, for students, Shake Smart believes that healthy eating should be an everyday habit, which is why all shakes are around a $5 average price point, so that it is fitting to most budgets and is comparable to the price of going out for coffee. Shake Smart will be accepting all meal plans and Lion Cash+ and will serve both the early risers and late night crowd with hours from 7am-10pm on weekdays.


To kick off the opening of both new locations, Shake Smart will be hosting a Grand Opening Free Shake Day at both locations. More information regarding the Grand Opening celebration will be announced closer to date. When dates are announced, mark your calendar, because it is an event that you do not want to miss. Shake Smart is excited to fuel the lifestyles of each and every Penn State student, faculty, and staff.
