This announcement builds on the strong development success Freddy's has attained since the beginning of the year with a growing pipeline of 100 units. Currently, at a total of 445 units, this growth will catapult the brand over the 500-unit milestone. Freddy's has attracted multi-unit operators by adapting to the ever-evolving QSR industry, implementing strategies to meet the increased consumer demand for convenience and accessibility. Most recently, Freddy's partnered with Creative Realities to launch digitalized menu boards for seamless, next-generation technology. Additionally, to continue its growth with non-traditional formats, Freddy's opened its first airport location in the Will Rogers World Airport in Oklahoma City. Following their airport debut, Freddy's opened its second casino location in Friant, California's Table Mountain Casino as well as a placement at a new Texas travel center on the main interstate that runs from Dallas to Houston.
