Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers opened Sunday 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 March 23. Representatives of Marietta-based 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 Parkway in Kennesaw last November.
Co-founded in 2002 by Scott Redler and Bill, Randy and Freddy Simon, Freddy’s opened its first location in Wichita, Kansas, offering a unique combination of cooked-to-order steakburgers, Chicago dogs and other savory items along with its signature desserts prepared with premium frozen custard made fresh throughout the day. Today, 246 Freddy’s restaurants serve a total of 30 states across the map from California to Pennsylvania, Virginia and down the east coast states to Florida.
