Andy’s Frozen Custard, a 30-year-old Midwest institution, opened their first Arizona location in the Ahwatukee Palms Shopping Center on the southeast corner of 48th Street and E. Warner Road. Managing partners Ken Treat and Bruce Johansson will be responsible for making Andy’s as much an institution in Ahwatukee as it is the original Andy’s Custard in Springfield, Missouri.

Andy’s menu features a variety of custard-based desserts including custard cups with fruit and sauce toppings; concretes, custard mixed with fruit, nuts and candy, along with shakes, malts and “old-fashioned freezes.”

Andy Kuntz is responsible for turning a frozen custard actually invented by his parents in Osage Beach, Missouri, into a treat that can be found in nine states so far.

The company started looking for its first Arizona location two years ago. The Ahwatukee store is the company’s 51st.
