We will open nearly 20 new stores this year and have over 50 in development.

Kuntz added, “I grew up in a family with a long history of being motorsports fans and that tradition continues with my family, too. Our company has sponsored regional and developing drivers for 30 years and we’re committed to continue being part of the racing community for years to come.”

As part of the partnership, Andy’s Frozen Custard is the Official Treat of Texas Motor Speedway, offering race fans from the region the chance to enjoy its award-winning frozen custard treats at the track through branded kiosks, treat trucks and to suite holders. Andy’s also continues to work with Richard Childress Racing (RCR) and Austin Dillon as he navigates the Cup series this year, through logo placement and media collaborations.
