Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers Signs Master Franchise and Development Agreement to Debut in Canada
To Expand North of the Border with Leadership of Long-Time Franchisees
December 01, 2022 // Franchising.com // WICHITA, Kan. - Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers® announced today the signing of a Master Franchise and Development Agreement in Canada to begin growing Freddy’s footprint across nine of Canada’s provinces excluding Quebec, marking the brand’s entry into the country. The Master Franchise and Development Agreement will see the group both develop on their own and initiate master franchising activity in Canada with an initial agreement to develop at least 20 Freddy’s restaurants.
“Gregg and Jim are well-known and highly respected franchisees, especially within Canada, and we are thrilled to continue our partnership with them as they introduce Freddy’s to their home country,” said Andrew Thengvall, Chief Development Officer at Freddy’s. “We’re proud to partner with such experienced operators and can’t wait to see what the future holds for them as they bring Freddy’s delicious offerings to the residents of Canada.”
With backgrounds in large scale development for multiple quick-service restaurant brands, Gregg and Jim have worked together for over 16 years as franchise partners with much success in North America and Canada alike. The group joined the Freddy’s franchise network earlier this year to help the brand enter into the Dakotas with a store in Fargo, North Dakota. Gregg and Jim have a history of international development for multiple brands in Canada.
“We were first introduced to Freddy’s by a fellow franchisee and after learning more about the concept and the franchise opportunity, we immediately knew we wanted to be involved with the brand, as we were impressed by its notable AUVs and strong leadership team. Jim and I have been long-time business partners in growing our franchise portfolio and after seeing the success of our North Dakota location, we felt it made sense to continue our partnership and introduce Freddy’s to Canada,” said Gregg Most, Franchise Owner of North 49 Frozen Custard and Steakburgers.
