The newest restaurant to come to Owensboro will be Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburger, set to take over the South Frederica location previously operated by White Castle.
According to the franchise’s website, it was co-founded in 2002 by brothers Bill and Randy Simon, and their friend and business partner, Scott Redler, the three men named the restaurant after Bill and Randy’s father, Freddy Simon, a World War II veteran. Today, Freddy’s restaurants from coast-to-coast serve a menu reminiscent of the all-American meals Freddy prepared for his family.
The nearest Freddy’s locations are in Evansville and in Bowling Green. Construction will begin at the end of March and the location is scheduled to open in July.
