Freddy’s restaurants from coast-to-coast serve a menu reminiscent of the all-American meals Freddy Simon, a World War II veteran, prepared for his family.
Rick Youmans, General Manager of Freddy’s in West Chester, is a veteran of the armed forces. This being the case, he takes a special pride in he and his team treating guests that have served with a particular dignity. In addition, both active duty and retired military always receive a discount at Freddy’s.
Freddy Simon, namesake of Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers, himself signed up for the infantry in the U.S. Army at the first opportunity. After years of fighting in places around the Pacific Rim during World War II, Freddy earned the Purple Heart and the Bronze Star for his service.
On the wall of Rick Youmans’ store hangs a large portrait of Freddy Simon standing in front of the General Douglas MacArthur Memorial on the island of Leyte in the Philippines, where Freddy fought for the liberation of the Filipino people.
Rick Youmans explains, “I’m a veteran, 20 years active duty. And, I know when I come to Freddy’s, that person across the counter is going to say to me, “Hi. You’re a veteran? We have a discount today. I’m proud of you. Thank you for your service.” Being a veteran is just a wonderful feeling.”
He adds, “What makes Freddy’s different? People. I’m part of the family, and it’s all about family atmosphere here.”
