Suffolk’s first Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers is expected to be open for business in mid-August, according to area franchise owner Dave Dreiling in an email. The 3,361 square-foot restaurant will seat 108 guests with additional patio seating and hire 85 local employees.
Freddy’s has more than 200 locations across the nation, including restaurants in Bristol, Fredericksburg and Fairfax. The restaurants are known for cooked-to-order steakburgers, Vienna beef hot dogs and frozen custard.
