Wichita, Kan. — Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers is steadily expanding in the Southeastern United States with the opening of three new franchised locations — including its first location in Mississippi — and the announcement of a new franchise development agreement.
Located in Olive Branch, Miss., the new restaurant is the company’s first location to open in the state. The same franchise group is also underway with construction in Little Rock and Fort Smith, Ark., for new restaurants slated to open in December and January, respectively. One of Freddy’s largest franchisees, this experienced group also operates locations from San Diego to Tennessee.
Freddy’s has also signed a new franchise agreement with Kevin Morrow for additional locations in Cabot, Searcy and Batesville, Ark., for development over the next several years.
Brothers Bill and Randy Simon, along with their friend and business partner Scott Redler, founded the fast-casual restaurant in 2002. Today, Freddy’s has grown to 280 locations coast-to-coast.
“Our accelerated development in the Southeast, from both existing and new franchisees, is a true testament to the strength of our brand and our unwavering commitment to our network of partners,” says Randy Simon, president and CEO. “With our restaurants in the region performing consistently well, we’re continuing to eye expansion opportunities and look forward growing our footprint throughout the area.”
Franchise opportunities remain in areas across the U.S. Specifically in the Southeast, available territory includes Russellville, Arkadelphia and El Dorado in Arkansas. The I-20 corridor that stretches across Mississippi and Louisiana also presents an opportunity for prospective franchisees. For more information visit www.freddysusa.com/franchising.
