The fifth Denver-area Freddy’s location opens today, at 900 Sgt. Jon Stiles Drive in the Town Center shopping district of Highlands Ranch.

“We are so excited to grow the Freddy’s concept in Denver. Our mission is to serve high-quality, cooked-to-order steakburgers in a welcoming and family-friendly atmosphere,” says franchise operator Brian Pyle. “Our guests in Colorado seem to appreciate the hospitality as much as our signature turtle sundae. We hope the ongoing expansion efforts make Freddy’s a convenient stop no matter which part of the metro area you’re in.”

Freddy’s first location in Colorado opened during 2009 in Littleton and was followed quickly by three more Denver area locations and a store in Longmont. Early in 2012, a new location opened in Monument and two additional sites are under construction in the Colorado Springs market. Freddy’s is also scheduled to open this fall in Loveland.

“Today marks another milestone for Freddy’s. Less than six months after opening our 60th store, we are opening new stores in Highlands Ranch as well as McPherson, Kansas, and thereby crossing the 70-store threshold,” says Freddy’s COO Scott Redler.

“Our company is preparing to celebrate our 10th anniversary in August and, thanks to franchisees such as the two opening these store, our team of dedicated employees and, of course, our wonderful and loyal guests, what we couldn’t even dream possible is becoming a reality. For this, we are extremely grateful. Our humble attempt to focus on each and every guest, their families and the wonderful values that made America the home of the brave, all seem to resonate no matter what the market.”
