The city of Arnold will again be home to an A&W restaurant, the franchise chain announced today (July 20).

According to a press release, the Arnold location is expected to be at 3996 Jeffco Blvd. That building used to house a McDonald’s restaurant and is at the intersection of Jeffco Boulevard and Telegraph Road.

Longtime St. Louis-area franchise owners Jim Sill and Jim Sprick will operate the Arnold location. The pair also is expected to open a restaurant in Bellville, Ill.

The two new A&W restaurants will be the seventh and eighth locations for Sill and Sprick, the announcement said.

Arnold City Administrator Bryan Richison said the city had not been contacted by the prospective restaurant owners as of today. He also said they would not have to contact the city to purchase the property site, but the restaurant will need to apply for a business license and most likely a building permit if there are plans to renovate the existing building.

An A&W restaurant previously operated in northern Arnold off Jeffco Boulevard, near Arnold City Park.
