Freddy’s Frozen Custard Franchise

Freddy’s Frozen Custard is a franchise for a shop serving frozen custards and steak burgers. It was first founded by Freddy Simon in the 1950’s. It did not start with the frozen custards, but instead, with the steak burgers.

Freddy is a World War II veteran and he used to serve these steak burgers to family and friends. Almost 50 years after, his sons reminisced about their father’s memory and decided to base their business with a menu that contains their father’s steak burgers. They decided to name the restaurant after their dad. On second, the one that was worthy to help them make a name for their restaurant are the frozen custards.
