JACKSONVILLE, N.C. – Fast-casual restaurant franchise Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers recently broke ground at 4133 Western Blvd. in front of Academy Sports. Slated to open in the winter, this restaurant joins a string of Freddy’s locations to open across North Carolina over the last few years.
“We’ve wanted to expand our presence along the Atlantic coast for quite some time, and Jacksonville is a great next stop for our family-friendly concept,” said Dave Dreiling, franchise owner. “The Western Boulevard corridor is flourishing with new restaurants and retail businesses. We look forward to be a convenient dining option for those shoppers in the area, as well as for those nearby movie goers at AMC Jacksonville 12.”
The 3,500 square-foot, free-standing restaurant will seat 114 guests and will have additional seating on the patio. Drive-thru service will also be available. Freddy’s is known for its lean ground-beef steakburgers, Vienna Beef hot dogs and shoestring fries, as well as dessert treats prepared with a choice of chocolate or vanilla frozen custard that is churned fresh several times throughout the day.
“We strive to provide fast, friendly service and premium quality food at an appealing price point,” said Dreiling. “Our food is cooked only after a guest has place their order. It’s this, coupled with our genuine hospitality, that creates an enjoyable dining experience for guests of all ages.”
