Wichita, Kan. — Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers, a leading national fast-casual restaurant concept known for its cooked-to-order Steakburgers and freshly churned frozen custard treats, has signed a multi-unit franchise agreement to develop 50 new restaurants over the next several years across the Southeast. As part of this agreement, Freddy’s will grow its footprint throughout the Florida West Coast and Panhandle, with locations currently under development and slated to open next year in Pensacola and Tampa.
These new restaurants will be owned by experienced multi-unit operators RSolution Holdings, who signed a 50-unit deal with Freddy’s after acquiring three of the brand’s Florida locations in Bradenton, Sarasota and Ocala last year.
Freddy’s has continued to experience a surge in franchise development over the past several years fueled by its compounding success and growth. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic’s impact on the restaurant industry, the brand’s investments in innovation and technology allowed it to continue its nationwide expansion efforts throughout 2020, with third quarter marking a 28% increase in year-over-year growth. This year, Freddy’s has opened 29 new restaurants to date with additional locations in the pipeline slated to open before year-end, including its milestone 400th location.
Franchise opportunities remain in areas across the U.S., including the Northeast, Upper Midwest, California and large metro areas such as Pittsburgh and many of its surrounding markets. For more information, visit www.freddysusa.com/franchising.
Cofounded in 2002 by Scott Redler and Bill, Randy and Freddy Simon, Freddy’s opened its first location in Wichita, Kan. Today, Freddy’s has grown to more than 375 locations that serve 32 states across the nation from California to Pennsylvania, Virginia, down the East Coast states to Florida.
