Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers announced it has signed a multi-unit franchise agreement to grow its footprint in Pennsylvania, which will bring eight new restaurants to Montgomery County. Freddy’s made its debut in the Philadelphia metro area in 2012 with a Broomall location. A second area location opened last year in West Chester.

“Over the past year, we’ve been focusing more on expanding Freddy’s across the United States and are seeing the results of those efforts,” says Randy Simon, president & CEO. “The Northeast has been a target market for development and as we approach the end of 2017, we’re thrilled to be closing out the year with an agreement in Pennsylvania. With two existing locations in the state, guests have come to know us for our savory menu items and unique atmosphere and we look forward to bringing additional locations for residents to enjoy all that Freddy’s has to offer.”

Under the new agreement, franchisee Matt Melvin will develop eight new locations across Montgomery County. Melvin has more than two decades of experience in the restaurant industry, stemming from his involvement in a family-run restaurant that has been operating for the past 28 years. His knowledge and expertise are valuable to Freddy’s expansion efforts and will help fuel the company’s growth in the Northeast.

“Growing up in the food service industry, I’ve learned the ins and outs of running a restaurant. When it came to finding a concept I wanted to be a part of, Freddy’s was the obvious choice. The company has values that mirror my own along with an unparalleled network of support for franchisees,” says Melvin.

Franchise opportunities remain in areas across the U.S. Specifically in the Northeast; markets are available in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware and Maryland. New franchisees agree to develop at least four locations within their negotiated territory.
