How It All Began

At Freddy’s, frozen custard is such a signature part of the menu that it’s included in the name. But surprisingly, the Freddy’s story doesn’t begin with dessert. It all started with a main course back in the 1950’s.

Wichita, Kansas is a historical landmark in the hamburger’s march to prominence and home to WWII veteran Freddy Simon. The savory steakburger is inspired by the 50's style staple and reminiscent of an era focused on quality, cooked-to-order meals that bring families and loved ones together.

Two of Freddy’s sons, Bill and Randy, and accomplished restauranteur, Scott Redler, worked tirelessly to recreate the recipe that lived up to the timeless standards of their father's generation.

Today, thousands gather at Freddy’s for food and fellowship that fills their stomachs and warms their souls.

The Freddy's Way

Enjoying great food without a long wait doesn’t mean your meal has to be cooked before you order it. From sandwiches to sundaes, Freddy’s makes food fresh after you ask for it because that’s the kind of quality you deserve. Take a moment to catch up with friends and family, it’s almost time to eat.
