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