Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers, a fast-casual restaurant concept, opened Tuesday at 2204 Troy Road in front of Schnucks.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held with the Edwardsville/Glen Carbon Chamber of Commerce.
Freddy’s is known for its cooked-to-order steakburgers made with lean 100 percent ground beef, Vienna Beef hot dogs, crispy shoestring fries and frozen custard treats made with freshly churned chocolate or vanilla frozen custard.
“The Troy Road retail corridor has a steady flow of traffic through the area and is home to a wide variety of retail businesses and restaurants that makes it a great next stop for Freddy’s,” said Randy Simon, president and CEO. “Once you’ve had a chance to try our cooked-to-order menu items of steakburgers, Vienna Beef hot dogs and more, we hope guests in Edwardsville will keep Freddy’s top-of-mind for family dinners and drive-thru convenience.”
The 3,476 square-foot, freestanding restaurant, on the former site of a Burger King outlet, seats 106 guests and has additional seating on the patio. Drive-thru service is also available. Hours of operation are 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 10:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
“Making Freddy’s a more convenient dining option for our St. Louis-area guests continues to be a priority,” said Scott Redler, co-founder and COO. “As a St. Louis native, seeing our growth in the market is exciting. Our hope is that wherever you are in the area, a quality meal from Freddy’s will be just a short drive away.”
Co-founded in 2002 by Scott Redler and Bill, Randy and Freddy Simon, Freddy’s opened its first location in Wichita, Kansas, offering a unique combination of cooked-to-order steakburgers seasoned with Freddy’s Famous Steakburger & Fry Seasoning, Vienna Beef hot dogs, shoestring fries paired with Freddy’s Famous Fry Sauce and frozen custard freshly churned throughout the day.
Today, more than 300 Freddy’s restaurants serve 32 states across the nation from California to Pennsylvania, Virginia and down the East Coast states to Florida.
