PHOENIX — At long last, Eegee’s return to metro Phoenix has a set date.

The popular Tucson-based fast food chain will open a location in Gilbert at the southwest corner of Baseline Road and Val Vista Drive on July 15.

Eegee’s said it is giving out free food and drink for a year to some customers as part of its grand opening.

It won’t be the only Valley location to open this year.

A second spot in Gilbert and ones in Phoenix, Mesa and Scottsdale are also scheduled to open before the end of 2021.

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.

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