The fast-casual stand, which specializes in gourmet roasted corn topped with butter and/or seasonings such as Old Bay and chili powder, first opened earlier this month on the food court level of the mall next to the Forever 21 store entrance.
“We’re always looking for new, fast-casual dining options for our shoppers and are thrilled to be able to offer Shuck Shack’s ‘World Famous’ roasted corn at our center,” said Todd Jerscheid, director of marketing and business development for the mall, which also caters to large tour groups, busloads of visiting students, and people heading to and from the Pentagon City Metro station.
Additional flavors of corn include “The Founder’s Special” topped with a secret blend of seasonings, and hot butter, and “Mexican Street Corn,” (commonly known as “elote“), made with parmesan cheese and additional spices.
A sign on the side of the stand notes that the franchise is veteran owned. The owner did not respond to several requests for comment at the time of publication.
