Brentwood Mayor Planning Frozen Dessert Shop

A new shop that will sell frozen custard, soft serve ice cream and more is poised to open spring 2019 in Brentwood.

Chris Thornton, who serves as mayor of Brentwood, plans to open a 909-square-foot drive-thru and walk-up dessert shop called Monkey Business Frozen Treats at 2301 S. Brentwood Blvd. under his MBFT LLC, according to documents filed with the city. The proposed site sits adjacent to a Starbucks coffee shop and children's clothing resale shop Purple Cow.

Thornton owns the land, which currently is undeveloped. St. Louis County appraised the parcel for $67,100.

Thornton told the Business Journal he'll invest around $500,000 in Monkey Business, which will be a "one stop shop for cold and tasty treats."

Due to the time required to obtain permits, he said he's planning a spring 2019 opening. No general contractor has been tapped for the build out, but Crestwood-based Navigate Building Solutions is serving as adviser, Thornton said.
