HAMPTON-Construction recently began on one of the newest locations for Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers. The fast-food restaurant chain is opening a location in Hampton at 112 W. Mercury Blvd. The new restaurant is expected to open in late summer 2022.

“The area along Mercury Boulevard is flourishing with restaurants and retail businesses that make it a great fit for Freddy’s,” said Dave Dreiling, franchise owner, in a press release. “Our location makes us an easily accessible dining option for guests traveling along the highway as well as those looking for a place to eat after shopping at our retail neighbors.”

The 2,455 square-foot restaurant will seat 80 guests with additional outdoor seating on the patio. Drive-thru service will also be available.

Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers started in Kansas in 2002 and currently has more than 400 locations across the country. In addition to the new location in Hampton, a Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers will also soon be built on Richmond Road in Williamsburg.

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
