Eegee’s celebrates 50 years of frozen drinks, sandwiches & ranch dressing

The sandwich shop is commemorating its milestone anniversary with in-store promotions, limited merch, and more.

Throughout the month of September, Eegee’s is honoring 50 years of chilling people out during the hot summer days. Now, they’re ready to share the celebration with those that have helped them achieve such an accomplishment.

Founded in 1971, the brand began as a vending truck, serving a frozen lemon drink — the “eegee” — at events in Tucson. It’s been five decades now and there are 29 locations across Arizona.

To celebrate, Eegee’s is offering anniversary promotions in-store, limited-time merchandise, and also exclusive events for Rewards members.

Plus, the restaurant shared the following about a couple of fan-favorites:

“Over the years, many of eegee’s menu items — from its rotating eegee flavors to its specialty French fries — have developed a loyal following. So, for a flavor blast from the past, the restaurant brand will bring back two fan-favorite eegee’s flavors: Galactic Grape, available September 1 – 15, and another surprise flavor from the eegee’s vault for the second half of the month.”
