Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers, a Kansas-based casual restaurant, will make its debut this summer at Davenport’s Village Shopping Center.
“The West Kimberly development corridor is home to a wide variety of retail businesses, restaurants and family-friendly entertainment venues that makes it a great fit for Freddy’s,” said Mike Young, franchise owner.
Construction is beginning on the new 3,300-square-foot, freestanding restaurant at 916 W. Kimberly Road. Crews demolished a former bank building on the site last week.
Rick Weinstein, vice president of NAI Ruhl Commercial Co., which represents and manages the mall, said the Freddy’s site was built originally for Brenton Bank in 1988. It has sat vacant since Dutrax Community Credit Union relocated to a new site on West Kimberly Road in about 2014. The shopping complex was acquired that same year by Cap Realty, a New Jersey-based real estate company, he said.
Freddy’s is the latest new business for the shopping center, which saw the openings of Pancheros Mexican Grill and Pet Supplies Plus this month.
