Andy’s Frozen Custard was founded in 1986 by John and Carol Kuntz. The original location was in Osage Beach, Missouri. After eating frozen custard for the first time in Wisconsin, the couple decided to come up with their own recipe and open a business. The company is named after their son, Andy.
Today, Andy’s Frozen Custard has 29 locations in 5 states. The company serves a variety of frozen custard flavors, including apple pie and pumpkin pie in which an actual pie is ground up and mixed in with the custard. This chain is also known for purchasing thousands of boxes of Thin Mint cookies from the Girl Scouts each year and using the cookies in their custard. Andy’s Frozen Custard also serves milk shakes and sundaes with frozen custard, rather than ice cream.
Despite the coronavirus crisis of 2020, some restaurant locations, such as Andy’s, are opening new stores, rather than closing them.
Andy’s Frozen Custard maintains a corporate office in Springfield, Missouri.
