Sioux Falls is getting its ninth B&G Milkyway.

Josh Aberson, who works at GreenAcre Companies in town, is franchising the Sioux Falls summer staple along with his wife. The restaurant will be located at the corner of 69th Street and Cliff Avenue as part of the new Stadium Crossings Development.

"We’ve always felt like this part of the south side of town had a void for a location, so with the adjacent development on the greater site as well as the significant expansion of rooftops in the area, we knew it was a perfect time to franchise the location," Aberson said.

The 1,800 square-foot building will feature direct pedestrian access from 69th Street, patio seating and a double drive-thru. The lot is nearly an acre in size and will be near other retail centers and The Bloc, which feature a Starbucks, Year Round Brown, Gloss Nails and Cookie Co.

The menu will feature all the B&G favorites people have come to love, Aberson said.

Construction has already begun on the restaurant, which they're hoping to open by May 1, 2023.

"[With] my wife and I both being born and raised in Sioux Falls, we have a lifelong relationship with the brand as so many do," Aberson said. "A continued expansion of the B&G footprint is a perfect addition to our business portfolio, so we’re thrilled to provide this new location and look forward to additional sites in the near future."
