Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers is an American fast-casual restaurant chain based in Wichita, Kansas.
Freddy’s was founded by restaurateur Scott Redler and two brothers, Bill (1955-2016) and Randy Simon, whose father, Freddy Simon, was the inspiration for the restaurant, and its namesake. Redler and the Simons created a brand reminiscent of simpler times.
The company, founded in Wichita, Kansas in 2002, opened its first franchise in Hutchinson, Kansas during December 2004. In April 2011, the company opened its 50th store in Victorville, California, and in October 2013 its 100th store in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Its 150th location opened in April 2015 in Loveland, Colorado. There are currently more than 237 Freddy’s locations nationwide.
Co-founder Bill Simon died at age 61 on December 17, 2016 after a battle with cancer.
