Andy’s Frozen Custard opening first Baton Rouge location this month

Andy’s Frozen Custard is opening its first Baton Rouge location later this month on Lee Drive, across from the Arlington Marketplace. 

Founded in 1986, the chain’s menu mostly focuses on its namesake but also carries other frozen desserts. 

The Planning Commission approved plans for Andy’s Frozen Custard in April, and a permit was granted for construction to begin on the 2,250-square-foot restaurant in June of last year. Construction was estimated at $500,000.

The restaurant will be the first location in Baton Rouge for the Southern-based custard chain, which expanded into the Louisiana market last year with a Bossier City location. The chain is also in the process of opening a location in Lafayette. 

The Baton Rouge restaurant is scheduled to open the third week of January.
