Snappy Stop closes in north Rochester, but south shop continues cooking

Due to increased competition and a sluggish economy, the Snappy Stop drive-thru burger booth in north Rochester closed up shop for good on Sunday.

However, fans can still get their quick burger and fries fix at the original Snappy Stop mini-tower on South Broadway at 37 Ninth St. S.E.

Snappy"The north store was in a tough location," said Bucky Beeman, whose family created the unique burger drive-thru. "Eventually, we decided to close it and refocus our efforts on the south store and other businesses."

The north Snappy first opened at the start of 2005 at 3550 55th St. N.W., tucked between Discount Tire and Affinity Credit Union in front of the Northwest Plaza shopping complex.

The north store never was quite as successful as the easily accessible original at 37 Ninth St. S.E. by the Kmart store and the Soldiers Field shopping center, which Bob Beeman, Bucky's father, opened in 1986.

There were six employees working at the north Stop.

The building is available for lease through Rochester's Realty Growth Inc.

With all of the competition from Newt's to Five Guys to even Kwik Trip, how's the future look for the south Snappy Stop?

"The south location still does very good business," Beeman said. "It definitely will be there for a long time to come."

I don't know about the rest of you out there but Snappy's French Fry's are hands down the best in town. Sad to see this location close but thank god the original location is still going strong.

Thanks FryEater for the awesome compliment! Also try our Homemade Ice Cream Sandwiches sometime they are great.

Your fries are outstanding Bucky. Easily the best in town.

Snappy is ALWAYS my first choice for a quick meal...and those ice cream sandwiches are amazing! I'm sorry to hear that the North one is done but I will still continue to be a loyal customer.

I am not surprised your north store closed. I got 4 burgers there with rotten lettuce. I called the number on the receipt and the owner told me thanks for letting him know. No apology. Nice.
