Todd Arth doesn’t expect a line around the block when Andy’s Frozen Custard opens Wednesday in Countryside.
“Obviously if it was 80 degrees, we would draw more people,” says Arth, marketing director for the Springfield, Mo.-based chain. “We don’t expect it to be near as busy.”
There’s something ironic, too, about Andy’s Frozen Custard opening the shop, its fourth in the area, in a former firehouse at 5745 S. La Grange Road.
“We hope people come out and give us a try in the cold,” Arth says.
A fifth Chicago-area location is set to open on the South Side, at 8021 S. Harlem, in June.
