Is Andy's Frozen Custard Coming to Kirkwood?

The restaurant is seeking a permit to open its first store in the St. Louis area in Downtown Kirkwood.

Downtown Kirkwood's shopping district could see an Andy's Frozen Custard in the coming months.

The popular dessert chain is asking the City of Kirkwood for a special use exception permit to open a restaurant with a drive thru at 311 South Kirkwood Rd., next to Grapevine Wines & Cheese and across the street from Culpeppers Grill and Bar.

If development is approved, the restaurant would be the first Andy's Frozen Custard in the St. Louis area, according to a map of store locations. Andy's has 10 locations in Missouri, three in Illinois, three in Arkansas and one in Texas.

A petitioner for Andy's Frozen Custard will present plans for the store to the Kirkwood Planning and Zoning Commission tonight at its regular meeting at 7 p.m. at Kirkwood City Hall. The commission will then assign a subcomittee to conduct an on-site review with the petitioner.

I hope not. We don't need franschise custard in downtown Kirkwood. We have the Custard Station.

Doesn't seem to make a lot of sense. Ben and Jerry's folded down the block. Dottie's on Manchester and Cold Stone just across from this location very recently shuttered. Outlook would appear bleak.
