Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers, based out of Wichita, Kansas, has opened its first restaurant in South County.

Freddy’s, a fast-casual restaurant known for its steakburgers and custard, opened its doors at 5479 Southfield Center in front of the Schnucks on South Lindbergh Boulevard Oct. 15, and is the second Freddy’s location in St. Louis County. The third, in Bridgeton, opened Tuesday.

The other Freddy’s in the county is located in Creve Coeur, and the next closest one is in Collinsville, Illinois.

The new South County location is 2,979 square feet and seats 76 guests indoors, if full indoor dining capacity was permitted in the county. The restaurant also has additional outdoor seating. Hours of operation are 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and 10:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

“As someone who was born and raised in St. Louis, seeing our restaurant presence in the area grow each year is an exciting experience,” said co-founder and Chief Operating Officer Scott Redler. “We’ll continue to uphold the exceptional Freddy’s dining experience with fast, friendly service and cooked-to-order menu items to all of our guests at our newest location near Sappington.”

Founded in 2002 in Wichita, Freddy’s has now grown to 375 locations in 32 states.
