WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – Around Wichita today, many organizations will honor our veterans for their service to our country.

KSN caught up with one distinguished local veteran to find out how his years of service played a role in later successes.

You may know Freddy Simon as the face of Freddy’s Frozen Custard and Steakburgers, a staple in Wichita’s restaurant industry.

Simon believes he’s the luckiest man in the world.

“I worked a little harder for everything I wanted to do because I wanted to be successful in everything I did and it worked,” Simon said.

“He just instilled that in all us boys growing up,” said Bill Simon, one of Freddy’s sons and co-founder of Freddy’s Frozen Custard and Steakburgers.

Freddy Simon’s work ethic was crafted years before Freddy’s opened its doors.
