NEW YORK, April 22 (UPI) -- Step aside In-N-Out, there is a new burger joint coming to town.

New York City-based restaurant Shake Shack announced plans to expand the company westward, opening its first outpost in Los Angeles, Calif., later this year.

As of last year, the company had 31 corporate-operated stores and 10 franchises. The fast food chain founded by chef Danny Meyer, IPO-ed earlier this year and raked in $34.8 million in revenue according to Fortune.

NBC first reported the East Coast company's plans to open its doors in the West Hollywood area of Los Angeles. This is part of the company's larger plan to "open at least 10 new domestic company-operated Shacks each year," in hopes of eventually opening 450 stores nationwide.

Soon enough Californians will be able to enjoy a frozen custard and a burger anytime they want.
