Wichita’s favorite Freddy is turning 93, and the restaurant named for him is sticking with the tradition of celebrating with discounted custard for all.
Freddy Simon, father of Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers co-founders Randy Simon and the late Bill Simon, will have his birthday on Feb. 24, and in honor of him, all Freddy’s Frozen Custard locations will sell 93-cent single scoops of frozen custard today through Sunday, Feb. 25. Visitors can order either vanilla or chocolate either in a cake cone or in a dish.
During that same period, customers with receipts showing a guest number ending in 93 will get a free combo meal card that they can use on a future visit.
The chain is also encouraging people to wish Freddy a happy birthday on social media using the hashtag #HappyBDayFreddy, and their wish could be featured on Freddy’s official social media accounts.
Simon, a World War II veteran, is the chain’s popular mascot and is featured in photos hanging in restaurants throughout the country. A few years ago, he was featured on Veteran’s Day as the Person of the Week on ABC World News Tonight.
