WESTFIELD — Hankering for a hamburger, hot dog or maybe, despite the weather, a frozen treat? A casual restaurant franchise debuting in Central Indiana opened two locations Tuesday.

A Westfield Chamber of Commerce ribbon-cutting Tuesday morning marked the opening of Freddy’s, a hamburger, hot dog and frozen custard restaurant at 2740 E. 146th St., on the city’s border with Carmel.

The store also opened its Columbus location at 3660 Jonathan Moore Pike, near several restaurants and businesses off the I-65 exit for Ind. 46.

Indiana’s first Freddy’s Frozen Custard and Steakburgers opened in Evansville more than a year ago.

World War II veteran Freddy Simon, 91, and his son opened the first restaurant with a partner in 2002 in Wichita, Kan. It’s the kind of food Simon and his wife grew up with. Today, more than 230 restaurants in 30 states serve cooked-to-order hamburgers, hot dogs, chicken breast sandwiches and frozen custard desserts. Combo meals are served with a choice of shoestring fries, applesauce or Baked Lays potato chips. Kids’ meals also include grilled cheese and chicken tenders.
