Shake Smart To Open In Penn State’s White, IM Buildings
Update, May 1: Shake Smart will “definitely have” its location in the IM Building open by August 1, according to Shake Smart President Kevin Gelfand. The chain’s White Building location would shortly follow and open by October 1 at the latest.

Healthy-eating chain Shake Smart will open two locations in Penn State’s White and IM Buildings, the franchise announced earlier this month.
Shake Smart was the brainchild of two San Diego State University students, who wanted to make healthier options available to college kids. The locations will bring affordable, healthy food options to on-the-go Penn Staters.
Penn State will now join universities including Arizona State, Utah, and Florida in bringing Shake Smart on campus.
The two new spots will serve protein shakes, acai bowls, cold brew coffee, oatmeal, overnight oats, Greek yogurt, and peanut butter & banana sandwiches. Shakes will sit at around $5 each and can be purchased using meal points and LionCash+. Prices of other menu items haven’t been announced yet.
Once they’re officially open, the Shake Smart locations will serve students from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. on weekdays — a broader spectrum of hours compared to other on-campus options.
Shake Smart’s official opening date hasn’t yet been revealed. However, the franchise plans on hosting a grand opening ceremony, as well as giving away free shakes, once it opens its doors.
Although both gyms house plenty of vending machines, Shake Smart will be the first true dining establishment at each facility.
