Eegee’s return to metro Phoenix to start with Gilbert location this summer
PHOENIX — Popular Tucson fast food chain Eegee’s has announced new details about its return to metro Phoenix.
Eegee’s will open a location at the southwest corner of Baseline Road and Val Vista Drive in Gilbert this summer, the chain said Tuesday in a press release.
It’s one of five Valley locations that will open in 2021.
“We’re very fortunate that there’s already so much anticipation around our expansion. Our brand affinity in Tucson is so strong and we ultimately hope to grow that same kind of following in the Phoenix market, starting in the East Valley,” Eegee’s CEO Ron Petty said in the release.
“We’re excited to offer something new to East Valley residents—our unique menu of eegees, french fries and sub sandwiches.”
The fast food chain previously had Valley locations but doesn’t have any as of now.
Currently, the closest Eegee’s location to metro Phoenix is in Casa Grande.
The company’s signature frozen treats have also been available at some Valley Blimpie sandwich shops.
Other Valley locations are scheduled for Phoenix, Mesa, Scottsdale and a second location in Gilbert.
Eegee’s has more than 20 locations across Tucson and has been in business since 1971.
