Andy’s Frozen Custard

I realized there’s sort of a trend to today’s posts, kind of a “making old things more cool” vibe. This time it’s Andy’s Frozen Custard, a store in Springfield, Missouri that was started by a husband wife who “took on the challenge of selling frozen custard”… right. Anyhow, they’ve opened a new store and it’s absolutely beautiful, and environmentally friendly.

The store collects rainwater which cools the custard machine compressors, waters the plants around the site, and even can be used to rinse equipment. The lighting uses high efficiency fluorescent bulbs as well, which makes the building look beautiful and helps lower energy needs. Good design in uncommon places is always fun.
