Photographer brings tasteful eye to food pictures
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.
