Andy's Frozen Custard partners with Royals

Posted online

Springfield-based Andy’s Frozen Custard is teaming up with the Kansas City Royals.

The restaurant chain penned a multiyear partnership that makes the company a partner of the Royals. The financial terms and length of the deal were not disclosed in a news release, and officials could not be reached for comment by deadline.

Through the partnership, Andy's Frozen Custard will be available at Kauffman Stadium starting with the March 28 home opener. A portion of sales at a soon-to-open Kansas City store will go toward the Kansas City Royals Foundation, and Andy's will serve as presenting sponsor of the Kids Run the Bases program at Sunday home games, support Urban Youth Academy youth celebrations and participate as an RBI Youth League partner.

"Andy’s is excited to be a proud partner of the Royals, and we look forward to creating sweet memories for KC baseball fans," said Andy Kuntz, owner and CEO of Andy’s Frozen Custard, in the release. "I was born in Kansas City and have great memories of going to Royals games with my family, including the first 1973 game when the stadium was called Royals Stadium."

A March 27 grand opening event is planned for a new Andy's store in the Tiffany Springs neighborhood of Kansas City. A KC Royals-themed treat, slated to be unveiled during the event, would give partial proceeds to the Royals Foundation, which has donated over $25 million in grants to hundreds of local nonprofits.

The Royals-inspired treat will be available at all of Andy's locations in the Kansas City area. The company's website lists nine locations in the region.
