Freddy's Frozen Custard & Steak-burgers is a fast-casual restaurant chain that is based in Wichita, Kansas. It was started in 2002 and started franchising in 2004. It operates at more than 150 locations throughout the United States.
It was founded by Scott Redler, a restaurateur by profession along with his two brothers, Bill and Randy Simon. Their father, Freddy Simon was the inspiration behind the restaurant chain and therefore named after him.

Freddy's opened its 50th store in April 2011 in Victorville, California, and its 100th store in October 2013 in Bowling Green, Kentucky.
