West Murfreesboro got a little bit sweeter this week with the opening of Andy's Frozen Custard at 4307 Franklin Road.
Andy's fans young and old lined up Thursday night for a VIP event. The following day, Andy's doors opened to the general public.
"We're excited to be over here in the Blackman/Rockvale side of town. We have a lot of team members from both high schools," owner Brad Feuerbacher said.
This is the second Andy's Frozen Custard in Murfreesboro. The first opened in 2018 at 2262 Memorial Blvd. The frozen treat eatery also has a location in Spring Hill.
Feuerbacher said a fourth location is scheduled to open this spring in Gallatin, and he's considering a location in Smyrna.
THE SWEET NEWS: Enjoy creamy, sweet treats year-round at Andy's Frozen Custard
The store offers a menu of custard creations, from sundaes to a blended treat called concretes. Andy's offers drive-thru and walk-up service with outdoor seating.
Every store has its own nuance, Feuerbacher said. The Franklin Road location, for example, added a grassy area in back of the store. Often people eat in their cars, so this creates a space they can enjoy an impromptu picnic (in warmer months, of course).
You'll also find nearly double the number of parking spots. "We also have a larger patio (in front) with more benches," Feuerbacher said.
The custard shop is within walking distance of Toot's West. Imagine: Heating up with hot wings and cooling down with frozen custard?

Founded in 1986, the Missouri-based company specializes in custard flavors such as strawberry shortcake, blueberry, key lime and apple pie.
Andy's serves its custard within one hour of it being made. Nuts are roasted in Chicago a day before being shipped to stores. Brownies, pies and cookies are baked fresh daily.
Winter hours of operation are 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 11 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Hours are extended during warmer months.
