The new restaurant is on the site of a former Waids Restaurant in the Summit Shopping Center, 194 N.W. Oldham Parkway. It has a dining room and outdoor patio, along with a drive-through. It is the fifth area location for the Wichita-based chain.
Freddys offers cooked-to-order selections including steakburgers, Vienna beef hot dogs, grilled chicken sandwiches, chicken tenders, chili, fries and frozen custard.
The first Freddys opened in 2002 and the founders now operate the five area locations, six restaurants in the Wichita area and one in the Dallas area. They also have 95 franchise locations in 17 states. Technomic, a food industry research and consulting firm, recently named the chain as the 5th Fastest Growing Burger Concept in the country.
A new Overland Park location at College Boulevard and King Street is scheduled to open in May. Additional locations are in the early development stages for Lenexa, the Northland, Olathe and St. Joseph, Mo.
