Several new businesses are on their way to Overland Park’s Bluhawk shopping center in south Overland Park.
Eight new tenants will open their doors by this fall, according to developer Price Brothers.
This comes as Price Brothers and the city continue to work out funding for the next phase of of construction on the sprawling mixed-use development, the centerpiece of which is a youth sports complex near 159th Street and U.S. 69 Highway.
Here are the businesses set to come to Bluhawk later this year.
Since its announcement last fall, plans for a new Whataburger location at Bluhawk have been underway.
The Texas-based chain reportedly plans to add 30 new locations in Kansas and Missouri over the next few years, including five Johnson County franchises.
Overland Park’s first Whataburger location opened on March 7 at 135th Street and Antioch Road.
Andy’s Frozen Custard
Initial construction has already begun on a new Andy’s Frozen Custard location at Bluhawk.
This comes as the Missouri-based company continues its expansion into Johnson County.
Andy’s Frozen Custard has plans for another new location at 112th Street and Nall Avenue. Last fall, the company opened a new franchise at Overland Park’s Prairiefire development too.
This will mean Overland Park has four Andy’s Frozen Custard locations, with 12 across the Kansas City metro area.

Other Johnson County locations include Olathe, Shawnee and Prairie Village.
