Fast-casual restaurant franchise, Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers, recently began construction on its newest St. Louis metro market location at 3320 Green Mount Crossing Dr., near Target in Green Mount Crossing shopping center in Shiloh. Slated for an early-summer opening, the Kansas-based restaurant serves all-American menu favorites including thinly-pressed steakburgers, Vienna Beef hot dogs and crispy shoestring fries, as well as an assortment of dessert treats prepared with a choice of freshly-churned, chocolate or vanilla frozen custard.

“We chose this site in Shiloh because it’s a prime lot with great visibility from I-64,” said Randy Simon, CFO and co-founder. “It’s proximal to family-oriented residential areas and we feel it’s an all-around great match for our family-friendly restaurant concept. We hope to be an accessible dining option for local residents and area shoppers alike.”

The 3,170 square-foot, free-standing, franchisor-owned location will seat 100 guests, with additional seating on the patio. Drive-thru service will be available.

“We have a franchise location in Cottleville at 6031 Mid Rivers Mall Dr., and a location in St. Peters at 1365 Jungermann Rd.,” said Simon. “We’re excited to expand into the eastern St. Louis metro market and we look forward to serving the Shiloh community.”
