As Freddy’s concludes this year of high growth and wide-ranging industry acknowledgements, it announced the opening of two new locations in Arizona. The all-new free-standing location at 3476 W. Frye Road in Chandler, Arizona, opened its doors to an excited public and the first of what will be several locations in the Tucson area opened for business at 3725 W. Orange Grove Road.
Freddy’s announced today a brand new addition to its menu—the Raspberry Andes Concrete.
A Freddy’s location in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, marks the 55th store in the fast-growing system and the launch point for Wichita, Kansas-based franchise owner Nick Esterline. Along with his partners, Esterline plans to open an additional six stores in the Tulsa, Oklahoma, metro area. JRI Management, an experienced group currently heading day-to-day operations in nine Freddy’s locations, will operate Esterline’s stores.
Today, the newest Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers is churning out fresh custard treats and made-to-order steakburgers at a heated pace. The latest opening for the fast-growing chain of restaurants is adding steam to the recent Technomic report that ranks Freddy’s as the fifth fastest-growing burger concept in the country. With 31.9 percent sales growth since 2009, Freddy’s future is bright and exponential expansion is on the horizon. “We love the Freddy’s family and are so glad to be a part of it,” says Gilbert’s operating partner Craig Newman.
On April 11, Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers opened the 50th Freddy’s restaurant, in Victorville, California. This is the 10th new store in 8 months, demonstrating that while economic recovery has been slow, Freddy’s quality-based model is what the post-recession consumer demands.
