Plans have been announced for the building of a new Freddy’s Frozen Custard and Steakburgers outlet that will open sometime next year inside the Scottsdale 101 Shopping Center in Phoenix.
The Wichita, Kansas-based chain, which was launched in 2002 and currently has more than 300 locations, opened around 60 new stores in the last year. According to reports, it is exploring the possibility of building new outlets primarily in the West, Midwest, and New England.
Known for its steakburgers and chicken sandwiches, as well as frozen custard and a variety of multi-flavored sundaes, the company’s stores generally measure between 2,600 and 3,500 square feet.
Sites are typically around one acre.
Freddy’s locations, usually as new-built structures, but also in re-purposed retail spaces, typically include outdoor seating and parking space for up to fifty vehicles.
Last year the company introduced a smaller restaurant prototype and updated kitchen design, a concept it has since built on.
New Freddys stores are currently under construction in Birmingham, Alabama; Anthem, Arizona; and Tomball, Texas.
To date, the chain has 20 outlets in Arizona, 26 in Colorado, and 8 in New Mexico.
