Denver, CO—The fourth Freddy’s in the Denver Metro area opens its doors today at 8234 S. Kipling Pkwy in Littleton, CO. The free-standing location, that includes a drive-thru and patio seating, has been completely renovated to fit the Freddy’s prototype. The Kipling location in Denver marks store number #61 nationwide for Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers.
“We love being a part of the Denver community and appreciate the support from our guests. Freddy’s is focused on family-friendly meals made with fresh ingredients and cooked-to-order,” commented Freddy’s operating partner Brian Pyle. “With average meals between $5 and $7, we pride ourselves on providing high-quality food and every-day, affordable prices with exceptional hospitality.”
Freddy’s first debuted in the Denver Metro near Belleview Ave. & Prince Street during September 2009. Two more locations followed quickly in Aurora during 2010 and 2011. Two additional locations are slated to open in Denver before the year is out; the first at Highland Ranch and the second near 120th & Sheridan. In other areas of Colorado, you can find Freddy’s in the Longmont and Colorado Springs communities.
With 27 additional new stores set to open in 2012 around the country, the concept is quickly gaining momentum in previously uncharted areas of the country. “Our pace of growth this year is more than double last years and that was a record for Freddy’s. This is a very exciting time and we are really focused on strategic growth with the right people in place at every level.” remarked COO Scott Redler.
Co-founded by Scott Redler and Bill, Randy and Freddy Simon, Freddy’s opened its first location on west 21st Street in Wichita during 2002, offering a unique combination of cooked-to-order steakburgers, Chicago dogs, and other savory items along with its signature desserts prepared with premium frozen custard made fresh throughout the day in each store. Freddy’s founders operate six locations in the Wichita Metro area, two in the Kansas City market, and one in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Fifty-two franchise units serve other areas of Kansas and Oklahoma as well as Arizona, California, Colorado, Iowa, Missouri, Nebraska and Texas. An additional 35 locations are in various stages of construction. Freddy’s was listed as the Fifth Fastest Growing Chain Restaurant in the United States and Canada in 2010 by Chain Store Guide, a sister publication to Nation’s Restaurant News. More recently, Freddy’s was recognized by Technomics as the 5th fastest growing burger concept in the country. In the local community of the company’s founding, Freddy’s is a recipient of the 2011 Best in Business Award from the Wichita Business Journal. In 2011, Freddy’s was also named one of Entrepreneur Magazine’s Franchise 500® and #4 on the Franchise Chatter list of ‘Under the Radar Franchises’ for 2012.
