Construction starts on Roger’s Ice Cream & Burgers

Print Article

Courtesy photo The Hayden location of Roger’s Ice Cream & Burgers will look much like this Post Falls location, which opened in 2017.

Roger’s Ice Cream & Burgers, already with two places in Coeur d’Alene and one in Post Falls, is building a fourth, this one at 8833 N. Hess St. in Hayden.

With inside seating and a drive-through, the building is very similar to the new Post Falls place on Spokane Street south of I-90. Opening should be in February with open days and hours based on the season.

Roger’s started in Moscow in 1940 and moved to where Vault Coffee is at Fourth and Sherman in Coeur d’Alene and then to 13th and Sherman (formerly Dari-Delite) in the early and late 1980s. Owners Mark and Nicole Randolph opened the Neider Avenue place in 2012 and Post Falls in 2017.

The burgers now are made with country natural beef that is vegetarian-fed and naturally raised with no growth hormones or antibiotics. Check
