From Busboy To Multi-Unit Operator
Alex King may be only 29, but the Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers multi-unit operator has been a part of the throwback brand since he was a teenager. The Kansas native worked at a Freddy’s in Wichita all through high school and continued during college while attending Wichita State University. King found he liked business and quickly made his way through the ranks from busboy to cook, then manager to operator.
The young entrepreneur, along with his brother Stuart and two other friends–all with experience at Freddy’s–decided they liked the brand so much they would pool their money, look for an open territory, and open their own. They settled on Indianapolis and opened in late 2016.
At this early stage, King is still heavily involved in day-to-day operations–and looks forward to the day he’ll be able to work more on the business than in it. He’ll have to: his goal is to open 11 more Freddy’s in the next 7 years.
