MARIETTA/WEST COBB, Ga. – Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers opens on Sunday, March 19, at 3705 Dallas Highway SW in the new Parkside West Cobb shopping center anchored by Sprouts Farmers Market. The Cobb Chamber plans to host a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 3 p.m. on Thursday, March 23. Representatives of MUST Ministries will be in attendance. The local nonprofit organization will receive 10 percent of sales from all regular and large size frozen custard treats sold through April 19.
“We’re grateful for all of the help and hard work put in this winter to keep us on track to open by spring,” said Nick Esterline, franchise owner. “And thank you to the City of Marietta and Cobb County for the warm welcome. We’ve hired a great crew of local individuals who’re prepped and ready for Sunday. We hope to see you there.”
The 3,010 square-foot, freestanding location is developed by TGC Development Group and operated by JRI Management. It seats 100 guests and has additional seating on the patio. Drive-thru service is also available. Hours of operation are Sunday through Thursday 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Friday and Saturday 10:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. The new restaurant marks a second Cobb County location for Freddy’s, which opened at 1360 Earnest Barrett Pkwy. in Kennesaw last November.
“A Freddy’s steakburger starts with a lean ground beef patty that we press thin on a flat grill and sear until the edges are crispy,” said Jason Ingermanson, franchise operator. “Top two of those patties with our famous seasoning, two slices of cheese, onions, pickle planks and mustard, all served on a toasted bun and you have the Freddy’s Original Double. It’s a standard favorite that we recommend for first-time guests.”
A powerful, volunteer-driven organization, MUST addresses the basic needs of individuals, families and children with facilities in the Cobb and Cherokee counties and programs in numerous other counties. Thirty thousand people a year come to MUST for help and hope, eighty percent of whom are women and children. MUST provides groceries, a community kitchen, temporary shelter, housing, clothing, employment services, summer lunches for children, and toy shops for Christmas.
