Freddy’s Frozen Custard and Steakburgers, a “fast-casual” restaurant chain out of Kansas, is putting the finishing details on its architectural plans that will be reviewed in December by the Southern Pines Town Council.
Aaron Keck, director of construction and facilities for HCI Hospitality, said the Southern Pines location joins more than 15 Freddy’s developed by the franchisee in the Carolinas.
“It’s not a secret on our end. We are very excited about coming to Southern Pines,” Keck said. “What stood out to us was the community feel and general hospitality of the people there. We felt it was something we could contribute to and be a part of.”
Keck noted Freddy’s is a veteran-founded brand. “We are happy and proud of that military relationship. We feel with the community that Southern Pines is, our brand and value, it will be a good fit for us.”
