Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers has promoted co-founder and longtime COO Scott Redler to the newly created position of chief experience officer.
Redler has earned a reputation as a keen operations specialist in his 19 years as the fast-casual chain’s COO. His work earned him one of the industry’s top honors in 2020, the International Foodservice Manufacturers Association’s Silver Plate Award for limited-service operations.
“Who better than Scott to continue the work of providing our guests with a truly memorable Freddy’s experience?” Chris Dull, the brand’s CEO, said in a statement. “As co-founder, Scott created Freddy’s alongside his partners, and it is a privilege to have his expertise focused on ensuring the delivery of the very best experience for our franchisees, team members and guests.”
