Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers has selected a high-profile development by Houston-based McLeod Sears for its second location in the Corpus Christi MSA.
McLeod Sears is undertaking a major repositioning of a seven-acre tract in Portland, which is just a four-mile sprint to the Port of Corpus Christi and southwest Texas’ most popular beaches. Freddy’s largest franchisee in south Texas has ground-leased a 0.74-acre pad site to develop a 3,710-sf restaurant with two drive-through lanes.
“Double drive-through lanes is one of the hottest design trends in the fast-food industry,” says Michael McLeod-Cobb, who is pre-leasing and ground-leasing the seven-acre development at 1400 Wildcat Dr.
Freddy’s will be adjacent to the recently opened Chick-fil-A, the third restaurant in the market with a dual drive-through. “Both lanes are always busy,” says McLeod-Cobb, a partner in the firm. “It’s a strong beginning for our center and a sign of the times.”
