Giving Tucsonans brain freezes since 1971
In 1971, Ed Irving and Bob Greenberg began selling a frozen lemonade drink from a used vending truck in Tucson. Now a city institution and one of the strongest and most recognizable brands in Southern Arizona, its menu includes sandwiches, french fries, salads, homemade ranch dressing, cookies, and the iconic eegee’s frozen fruit drink.
As a beloved concept that has achieved cult-like status in Tucson, eegee’s has the opportunity to bring its beloved frozen fruit drinks and sandwiches to like-minded consumers in other markets where guests need their own brain freeze.
“I’ve run a number of major restaurant chains in my career, and it has always been clear to me how important it is to work with investors that understand the business. Kitchen Fund is exactly that type of investor. The KF team understands not only what has worked in the past, but also where the industry is going in the future. As we continue the evolution of an iconic brand like eegee’s, I appreciate having them as partners.”
