Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers has begun building its first restaurant with no dining room, a double drive-thru and walk-up ordering area, the company said Tuesday.
The Wichita, Kan.-based quick-service burger brand said the new prototype is under construction in Salina, Kan., and is expected to open in late August. It will be offered to franchisees as a build option.
“This prototype is the latest in a variety of available options and will cater to the growing number of our on-the-go guests who are mobile-minded and benefit from the ease and convenience of this prototype’s features,” said Chris Dull, CEO of Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers, in a statement.
“This new restaurant design option will fit seamlessly with our existing drive-thru and mobile ordering capabilities,” Dull said.
The prototype also offers parking stalls for curbside pickup, a walk-up window and patio seating, all of which saw increased consumer demand during the COVID-19 pandemic.
