Our teams are the BEST! Congratulations to a few of the smartest custard cookies in the Freddy’s Family. The Bill Simon Memorial Foundation has generously awarded $46,000 in scholarships this year to some of our most deserving, driven and dedicated students. Their reactions of gratitude did not disappoint!
The late Bill Simon, co-founder and first CEO of Freddy’s, had a passion for learning and encouraging others to strive for success. He was a leader who truly cared about everyone around him, wanting the very best for all. The Bill Simon Memorial Foundation was created to honor Bill’s legacy by helping Freddy’s Team Members further their education.
Thank you to those who have donated to the Bill Simon Memorial Foundation. Generous contributions have helped provide building blocks for our Team Members’ futures.
