Wichita, Kasas-based Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers ended 2022 with commitments for 140 locations and is entering 2023 with plans to open up to 20 units by the end of Q1. It’s also expanding in Canada with plans to open restaurants across nine of the country’s provinces over the next several years. Additionally, it will expand throughout Illinois, Nebraska, South Carolina and Texas, among others, according to a company press release.
“2022 was a milestone year for Freddy’s as we celebrated our 20th anniversary, and we are extremely proud of the strong development momentum we’ve been able to maintain from start to finish,” President and CEO Chris Dull said in the release. “Growing to 450 locations in the time that we did is a testament to our proven business model and our network of franchisees who continue to operate their restaurants the ‘Freddy’s Way.’ Our system and product remain consistent and will continue to stand the test of time because of our three brand pillars — quality, hospitality and cleanliness. We are excited about the future of Freddy’s and look forward to celebrating the next 20 years of growth.”
