If you are a fan of Freddy's Frozen Custard & Steakburgers, it won’t be long before you won’t have to make travel plans to the southeast or Henderson for some shoestring fries.
In 2012, the Wichita, Kansas-based chain announced plans for eight Las Vegas locations. It took a while, but the chain's third home will slot into a long-shuttered combination Long John Silver’s and A&W drive-thru building, close to the corner of Charleston and Decatur boulevards.
Construction permits have already been filed for the makeover, which will include the brand’s distinctive red and white color scheme inside and out, plus nods to vintage diner design.
On the menu, steakburgers, frozen custard concretes and sundaes, Chicago dogs, patty melts and fries cooked with "Freddy's Famous Fry Seasoning."
The company's namesake is decorated World War II veteran and exuberant 90-year-old, Freddy Simon, father of Freddy's CEO Bill Simon, who promotes a philosophy of "optimism, patriotism and the upbeat values of our great country."
Earlier this year the chain opened its 200th restaurant after 14 years of operation.
