eegee’s Gilbert Soft Opening

March 2 @ 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Growing restaurant brand eegee’s has announced it will open the doors to its third metro Phoenix location in Gilbert on Thursday, March 3, with a soft opening event on March 2. Located at Val Vista Drive and Willis Road near Loop 202, 100 percent of the proceeds will be donated to Gilbert-based charity, Open Arms, during eegee’s soft opening.

On Wednesday, March 2, from 4 to 8 p.m., guests are invited to support their local community by simply enjoying their favorite eegee’s menu items. The 2,300-sq.-ft. space will feature eegee’s contemporary store design with a walk-up ordering window and a drive-thru with a special eegee-only window so that those ordering the beverage can quickly and conveniently exit the line. Modeled after the prototype debuted at eegee’s in Mesa, the newest location is built using sustainable Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) which are made from renewable resources, are 100 percent recyclable, and allow for faster construction. The dining room is partially enclosed by garage doors, which will be open in the cooler months, allowing guests to enjoy their meal with fresh air.

Since it began serving frozen lemon drinks in Tucson 50 years ago, eegee’s has maintained the belief that it’s not enough to simply be in the community, but to also be an active part of it. Over the past year, the restaurant has expanded the ways in which it supports the communities it operates in, partnering with other local restaurants, businesses, and artists. For its third Valley location in Gilbert, eegee’s is partnering with:

Gilbert-based non-profit Open Arms, which serves local families who have fallen on hard times by providing them food and clothing on a monthly basis. All proceeds from the soft opening on March 2 will be donated to the organization.

Local artist, Sage Aune (@sagepizza), who designed a special-edition eegee’s-inspired sticker for the opening. Starting on March 2 and until supplies last, one sticker will be gifted to the first 5,000 guests at the new location.

eegee’s is continuing its expansion throughout Arizona and has broken ground at 35th Avenue and Peoria Avenue in Phoenix—the brand’s first West Valley location—with the opening slated for summer 2022.

The new eegee’s is located at 3612 S. Val Vista Drive in Gilbert. The restaurant’s hours are Monday through Sunday, 10:30 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.; the drive-thru remains open until 10:00 p.m.
