Oh, no! Foster’s Freeze in Menlo Park is closing
What has been feared for a decade appears to be imminent. After over 50 years in business, Foster’s Freeze on Oak Grove Avenue in Menlo Park will close on September 30.
When we talked to owner Sung Lee in 2011, he noted the drop off in business when M-A closed its campus for lunch. The iconic seller of soft serve ice cream has long been threatened by redevelopment along that stretch of Oak Grove between El Camino and the train tracks.
