Bill Simon Memorial Scholarship Foundation Application


In memory of our beloved Co-Founder and CEO, Bill Simon, and his passion for learning, we are honored to establish the Bill Simon Memorial Foundation. In Bill’s honor, the Foundation will provide scholarships to assist restaurant Team Members who plan to pursue post-secondary education in college and vocational programs. Bill frequently expressed his gratitude for the hospitality that Freddy’s Team Members show our Guests. Awarding this scholarship animates that appreciation into action. Even as an accomplished leader, he studied, learned and listened. As we continue this scholarship, we honor Bill and his passion for education and a bright future for all.
