Another Freddy’s favorite is its Signature Turtle dessert because the restaurant churns out its frozen custard fresh in the restaurant several times throughout the day, he said.
“It’s denser, richer and creamier than ice cream due to a churning process that eliminates excess air and ice crystals,” Saunders said.
Freddy’s offers more than 30 toppings and mix-ins with which to top a custard, including several kinds of candy, fruit, syrups and nuts.
The 3,200 square-foot restaurant seats 100 guests with additional seating on the patio. Drive-thru service is also available.
“We are currently in the process of hiring team members for the West Chester location, and plan to hire approximately 85 local individuals,” Saunders said.
It is the sixth Cincinnati-area restaurant for the fast-casual concept, which has stores in Amelia, Milford, Centerville and on Winton Road in Cincinnati, according to spokeswoman Lexie Pearce. A new store is scheduled to open on Red Bank Road in the next few weeks, she said.
To celebrate the opening, the new West Chester Freddy’s will host a friends-and-family event the day before it opens to give its team members a chance to practice and perfect their skills following several days of training, Saunders said.
Hours of operation will be Sunday through Thursday 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Friday and Saturday 10:30 a.m. to 11 p.m.
