September 08, 2016 // Franchising.com // Mount Olive, N.C. – With National Chocolate Milkshake Day set for Monday, September 12, Hwy 55 Burgers, Shakes and Fries is honoring their name and the holiday by offering their famous handspun frozen custard milkshakes for $1 off on September 12.
“Burgers and fries seem to get the top billing all the time so we are excited to be able to showcase our amazing shakes made with the smoothest and creamiest frozen custard you have ever had,” said Hwy 55 president and founder Kenney Moore. “There’s a reason why we included shakes in the company name. It’s the perfect compliment to our incredible burgers and fries.”
Hwy 55 milkshakes uses homemade frozen custard, which is made daily and is smoother and creamier than regular ice cream. According to Moore, there’s a distinct difference between frozen custard and ice cream, due to a churning process that minimizes ice crystals and excess air. “Since it is freshly made, our custard is served at a temperature of 17-20 degrees, and is neither flash-frozen nor held at sub-zero temperatures. This allows the custard taste to really come through," said Moore.
With 128 units and growing quickly, Hwy 55 boasts a fresh, All-American diner experience with fresh, never-frozen burgers, premium sliced cheesesteaks piled high on steamed hoagies, and frozen custard made in-house every day. With its open-grill design, the kitchen's dedication and care when hand-crafting meals is front and center.
