No other details about the locations were immediately available.

The company’s signature frozen treats have also been available at some Valley Blimpie sandwich shops.

Currently, the closest Eegee’s location to metro Phoenix is in Casa Grande.

Eegee’s has more than 20 locations across Tucson and has been in business since 1971.
