Freddy’s Opens 300th Restaurant

by Katie Lee

Indianapolis — Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers opened in south Indianapolis on March 13, 2018. The opening marks the 300th location for Freddy’s. Freddy Simon, the 93-year-old company namesake and World War II veteran, was scheduled to be in attendance on opening day.

“Opening our 300th location is a dream come true and we are grateful to our Freddy’s family and guests who have led us to reach this milestone,” says Randy Simon, president and CEO. “We have a great group of franchisees in the Indianapolis-metro that started out as cooks and cashiers at our early locations in Wichita. Their dedication and hard work earned them management positions and they went on to be successful operators. They truly understand the Freddy’s values and culture and we hope to see more stories like theirs as the catalyst of future growth.”

Blake Epperson, managing partner for Freddy’s franchise group ICT, LLC joined the Freddy’s family nearly 15 years ago as an entry-level team member at the company’s original training restaurant in Wichita, Kan. He worked his way up to general manager before partnering with several other managers from Freddy’s corporate locations in Wichita to form a franchise group. ICT, LLC opened its first Freddy’s franchise in December 2016 with a location in Carmel/Westfield, Ind.

Co-founded in 2002 by Scott Redler and Bill, Randy and Freddy Simon, Freddy’s opened its first location in Wichita, Kan., offering a unique combination of cooked-to-order steakburgers, Chicago dogs and other savory items along with signature desserts, including fresh-churned frozen custard. Today, Freddy’s restaurants serve 31 states across the nation from California to Pennsylvania, Virginia and down the East Coast states to Florida.
