Arctic Circle, a Utah-born food and frozen treat favorite for more than 70 years, is adding another location to a restaurant chain that stretches across the Salt Lake Valley.
Arctic Circle’s newest restaurant is located at 3492 West Maradona Dr, Unit 1 in Herriman, not far from the Real Salt Lake Academy high school and training center. The brand-new building seats 19 and provides jobs for 20 employees.
The new spot in Herriman, known as ‘Academy Ridge’ on Arctic Circle’s online location finder, adds another Arctic Circle to the south end of Salt Lake County. In March 2022, Arctic Circle opened its first-ever double drive-thru concept in nearby Bluffdale.
“It’s exciting to have another location to serve a rapidly growing part of our home state,” Arctic Circle’s Chief Marketing Officer, Joe Evans, said. “We look forward to seeing Herriman families and friends enjoy a meal and an ice cream treat together.”
Established first as a ‘tiny little refreshment stand’ at a Pioneer Day celebration in Salt Lake City in 1924 by Don Carlos Edwards, Arctic Circle has since grown into one of the most recognizable family-friendly fast-food restaurants – not only in Utah, but also in Arizona, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and Wyoming.
The originators of the now-regionally beloved condiment, Fry Sauce, Arctic Circle has also made its name for menu items like 100% real Alaskan Halibut, Black Angus hamburgers, and a wide selection of Above the Rim shakes, sundaes, and frozen treats.
