A new Freddy’s Frozen Custard and Steakburgers is being built at 2141 S. Broadway Ave., next to Sonic Drive-In. It should be open by the end of the summer.
The Wichita-based, fast-casual chain is setting up shop across the Treasure Valley. Last May, Freddy’s debuted in Caldwell, at 5009 Cleveland Blvd., after the company opened stores in Meridian (3180 E. Lanark St.), near the corner of Eagle and Franklin roads, and in Nampa (1305 N. Happy Valley Rd.) adjacent to the Insterstate 84 and Garrity Boulevard interchange.
Freddy’s is known for serving Midwest-inspired frozen custard (swirled with all kinds of sweet treats) and grilled-to-order ground steak burgers. The menu also has patty melts, grilled chicken sandwiches and Chicago-style hot dogs topped with mustard, chopped tomato, marinated sport peppers, onion, pickle and a dash of celery salt.
