WICHITA, KAN. – Freddy's Frozen Custard & Steakburgers has announced the opening of a new franchised location in Linden, NJ. The new restaurant marks the company’s entrance into the 34th state to date. Located at 810 W Edgar Rd, the Linden restaurant is now open and serving guests the brand's signature menu items, including cooked-to-order steakburgers and Vienna Beef hot dogs.

“We are delighted to have Freddy's Frozen Custard & Steakburgers here in Linden,” said Linden's Mayor Derek Armstead. “I passionately believe there's no better place to be than here. We welcome Freddy's to our community and look forward to indulging in all of their good eats.”

Ethan Coleman, franchise owner of New Jersey Steakburgers LLC, owns and operates the new Freddy’s in Linden. Coleman has an extensive background in real-estate development from more than a decade of developing properties for a New York City-based real estate company prior to franchising. In 2020, he signed an agreement to develop dozens of Freddy's restaurants in markets across Northern New Jersey over the next several years. 

“I learned about Freddy's through a news article years ago and always wanted to try it but there were no nearby locations,” Coleman said. “While traveling to Florida, I finally had the opportunity to visit a restaurant and was blown away by the quality of food and warm hospitality that Freddy's is known for. Fast forward to today, I'm incredibly excited to be introducing such an amazing brand to New Jersey and can't wait for the community to experience The Freddy's Way for themselves. The City of Linden has been extremely welcoming, and I believe this is the perfect location for the state's first Freddy's. I look forward to building upon the brand's continued success and to serving the people of Linden and surrounding communities for years to come.”

Freddy's in Linden will be open Sunday – Thursday from 10:30 a.m. – 10 p.m. and Friday – Saturday from 10:30 a.m. – 11 p.m.
