Freddy’s Steakburgers to open second Midlands location in West Columbia


Fresh off of a grand opening in Northeast Columbia (restaurant shown above), Freddy’s Frozen Custard and Steakburgers has broken ground on another Midlands location.

This summer, a new Freddy’s will open at 2825 Sunset Boulevard not far from Lexington Medical Center.

Freddy’s first Midlands location opened on Valentine’s Day on Killian Road.

“We’re grateful for the warm welcome and for the kind comments we continue to receive at our Killian Road restaurant and online,” Brett Rickert, franchise owner said. “Construction on our West Columbia location started Monday and area residents can expect our signature lean ground beef steakburgers and creamy frozen custard in just a few months.”

The 3,000 square-foot, freestanding restaurant will seat 96 guests and will have additional seating on the patio. Drive-thru service will also be available. Freddy’s is known for its lean ground beef steakburgers, Vienna Beef hot dogs and shoestring fries, as well as dessert treats prepared with a choice of chocolate or vanilla frozen custard that is churned fresh throughout the day.

Founded in 2002, the Wichita-based chain plans to open about 70 restaurants in 2017.

Today, 245 Freddy’s restaurants serve a total of 30 states across the map from California to Pennsylvania, Virginia and down the east coast states to Florida.

For now, how about trying out A Taste of Lake Murray later this month?
