Shake Shack founder Danny Meyer filed Thursday to sell a majority of his shares in the burger chain, Crain’s New York Business reports.

Meyer, who holds close to 1.3 million Shake Shack shares, noted in a regulatory filing that he could shrink his shares to as few as 30,000, Crain’s says. Though not a commitment to sell, the filing strongly indicates his intent to do just that.

Shake Shack saw its market capitalization climb close to $2 billion during its January IPO, as Restaurant Business earlier reported.
