Fast-casual concept Freddy's Frozen Custard & Steakburgers will enter its 33rd U.S. state with the opening of the restaurant’s first location in Appleton, Wis., in August.

Freddy’s has opened more than a dozen new restaurants in the first half of 2021 and expects to open 30 more before the end of the year, including its first-ever location in New Jersey, also in August.

The Appleton Freddy's is owned and operated by brothers Chad and Nick Sternitzky. The Sternitzkys plan to develop eight additional Freddy's restaurants throughout Wisconsin, targeting the Madison and Green Bay markets.

Freddy’s was acquired by private equity firm Thompson Street Capital Partners in March 2021. The fast-casual chain has more than 400 locations across the country.
