North Aurora Tastee Freez closed again

NORTH AURORA – After reopening for a few months earlier this year, the Tastee Freez restaurant at 17 S. Lincolnway in North Aurora is closed again.

The restaurant reopened in June with a new owner after being closed for about a year. But it recently closed again after the new partnership fell apart, said Wendi Rose, president of Chicago Tastee Freez.

“Unfortunately, those things do happen,” she said. “The store is closed until things get reorganized.”

One of the partners has stepped forward and will take over the store, Rose said.

Plans are to reopen the store by March, she said.

In the meantime, Tastee Freez will make improvements at the site, including installing new signs and lights, Rose said.

The North Aurora location was built in 1967.

The Tastee Freez chain started in 1950 and is known for its ice cream, old-fashioned sundaes, strawberry shortcake and other items.

While the North Aurora Tastee Freez is closed, the Tastee Freez at 818 E. Main St. in St. Charles will reopen Oct. 29 after a ribbon-cutting ceremony, Rose said.

The new owner, Stanley Pikul, previously operated a food truck in Chicago, she said.

Construction along the east side of Route 64 caused the Tastee Freez to close, Rose said. The restaurant has a dining room and will be open year-round, she said.
