WILLIAMSBURG-The restaurant chain Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers has begun the process of opening a location in Williamsburg.

Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers is hoping to construct a new restaurant on two parcels of land at 1611 and 1617 Richmond Road in Williamsburg. An application to demolish an old Pizza Hut restaurant at 1611 Richmond Road in order to build a Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers was presented to the City of Williamsburg Architectural Review Board on October 12.

Rumors have been swirling for months about a Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers coming to the Williamsburg area. The restaurant specializes in frozen custard and shakes, fries, and a variety of steakburgers, and also serves chicken sandwiches and hot dogs. The first restaurant opened in Kansas in 2002. Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers currently has four other locations in Virginia, including one on the Southside in Suffolk.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
