Freddy's Frozen Custard & Steakburgers opens today in Highlands Ranch

The fifth Denver area Freddy's Frozen Custard & Steakburgers opened today at 900 Sgt. Jon Stiles Drive in the Town Center shopping district of Highlands Ranch. "We are so excited to grow the Freddy's concept in Denver," says franchise operator Brian Pyle. "We hope the ongoing expansion efforts make Freddy's a convenient stop no matter which part of the metro area you're in."

The Wichita-based burger chain's first metro location opened in September 2009 at 2660 West Belleview Avenue in Littleton, and was quickly followed by three more Denver area locations and a store in Longmont.

"Today marks another milestone for Freddy's," notes Freddy's COO Scott Redler in a statement about the opening. "Less than six months after opening our 60th store, we are opening new stores in Highlands Ranch as well as McPherson, Kansas, and thereby crossing the 70 store threshold. And our company is preparing to celebrate our 10th anniversary in August."

The new store is open Sunday through Thursday from 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m.; Friday and Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. Go to the website for more information.
