A new custard and steakburger restaurant plans to make its new home on Fairfax Boulevard in the coming months.
Currently under construction, Freddy's will open at 10030 Fairfax Boulevard in the old Kentucky Fried Chicken location. Its one of six Freddy's shops to move to Northern Virginia, said Sarah Selmon, communications director for the chain.
Freddy's originally opened in 2000 in Wichita, Kansas. Two sons, Randy and Bill, opened the restaurant in honor of their father, World War II vet Freddy Simon. It became a franchise in 2004. Since then it's spread to 22 states across the nation.
"We are very grateful for this level of growth and for the guests who have such a strong affinity for our food," said COO Scott Redler, co-founder and brother of franchisee Barry Redler. "We are honored to be a place that means enough to our guests to be included in their family time and life's celebrations."
The restaurant boasts variations on steakburgers, fries, custard cakes and ice cream.
Fairfax Freddy's will hire about 60 employees. Want to apply? Check out this link.
