Is there anything people love more than an amazing burger? Possibly amazing ice cream. Or even better — in one tantalizing place. And that’s no place but Freddy’s Frozen Custard and Steakburgers. It’s a multi-unit franchise opportunity that’s second to none. Franchise owners enjoyed a banner 2021—toppling trends and firing up the accolades.
We opened over 30 new franchises last year alone. If 2021 proved one thing, it’s that owning a Freddy’s is a top franchise opportunity. It’s a growth move that can give your portfolio an extra boost. And we don’t see things slowing down anytime soon.
Franchise growth. All the pieces are in place.
It’s easy to understand why entrepreneurs and multi-unit investors are drawn to the opportunities here. For starters, it’s not your run of the mill burger joint. It’s the steakburger franchise that stands out in a crowded field. It’s one that customers can’t get enough of.
Freddy’s strengths? First up: the food. Cooked-to-order steakburgers made with 100% ground beef. Vienna beef hot dogs. Crispy shoestring fries. And freshly churned frozen custard treats. We also bring our brand values to the table every day. Since our start in 2002, we’ve given people a fun, family-friendly experience. Plus, we’ve stuck to (and met) aggressive sales goals.
Franchise leadership and support
New CEO Chris Dull joined the team last year with a mission of bringing savvy investors like you to the brand.
“If you’re considering franchising, I highly recommend you give Freddy’s a strong look. We are an established brand with a proven track record and plenty of opportunity available for growth. We have territory within our core markets that is still open for development,” says Chris.
In terms of development, Freddy’s is always on the lookout for partners who share the same values. And right at the top of that list is performance. The numbers speak for themselves: Freddy’s saw its AUV increase YOY – the current AUV is $1.88M* compared to $1.53M a year ago.
Freddy’s is a robust QSR brand on the rise and gathering momentum. So don’t delay another day. There are many multi-unit investors making moves to be part of this all-American favorite. Investors saw us expand into our 34th state last year and add over 30 new locations, including our first airport spot in Oklahoma City.
