Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers announced that it will offer a $1 discount on frozen custard treat purchases at locations nationwide in honor of National Frozen Custard Day on Saturday, August 8. For the fifth year in a row, Freddy’s will support the Kids In Need Foundation, an organization that provides teachers and students in under-resourced schools with the supplies they need to succeed. Through its annual promotion, the brand has donated $75,000 to the foundation since 2016. 

“We know the upcoming school year will look different across the country as guidelines are still being determined to ensure the safety of students, teachers, faculty, and staff,” says Corey Gordon, CEO of Kids In Need Foundation. “Whether students are learning in a traditional classroom or from their homes, they need supplies to continue their education. We are grateful to Freddy’s for raising awareness and support for the needs of under-resourced teachers and students nationwide.”

Scott Redler, Co-founder & COO for Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers adds, “Freddy’s and our guests look forward to this initiative every year, and given the current health crisis, we wanted to make sure we could uphold the tradition of supporting the amazing teachers and students in our communities in a safe way. With the many safety measures we’ve implemented, we’re confident that our guests can still feel safe stopping by to enjoy a treat while supporting a great cause.”

Frozen custard is an integral part of the Freddy’s menu and one of the most beloved signature items. Known for being smoother and richer than ice cream due to a time-tested churning process that minimizes ice crystals and excess air, Freddy’s frozen custard is made using only America’s finest dairy ingredients. It is churned throughout the day, every day in each restaurant to produce the high-quality, fresh custard treat that made Freddy’s famous in 32 states.

Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers plans to open more than 30 restaurants nationwide throughout 2020. Franchise opportunities remain in areas across the U.S., including the Northeast, Upper Midwest, California, and large metro areas such as Pittsburgh and many of its surrounding markets.
