The fast-casual restaurant Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers signed a multi-unit franchise agreement to develop 50 new restaurants over the next several years in Florida and across the Southeast. Freddy's will grow its footprint throughout Florida’s West Coast and Panhandle, with locations currently under development and slated to open next year in Pensacola and Tampa, reports Chain Store Age.
The new locations will be owned by multi-unit operators RSolution Holdings, which signed a 50-unit deal with Freddy's after acquiring three of the brand's Florida locations in Bradenton, Sarasota, and Ocala last year.
Freddy's has continued to experience a surge in franchise development during the past several years. It has opened 29 new restaurants to date this year with additional locations in the pipeline slated to open before year-end, including its 400th location.
