Our Vision

Freddy’s is one of the fastest growing, relatively new fast-food franchises that offers a unique combination of cooked-to-order steakburgers, Chicago dogs, and other savory items along with its signature desserts prepared with premium frozen custard made fresh throughout the day. Freddy’s began in Wichita, Kansas in 2002 with its headquarters remaining there. In 2016, Freddy’s was named for the third year in a row as one of the top 10 on Franchise Times magazine’s Fast & Serious list, recognized as one of Entrepreneur Magazine’s Franchise 500® and included on Inc. Magazine’s 500/5000 list of “Fastest-Growing Private Companies” (both, for the fifth consecutive year).

JRI also owns and manages 2 Mokas coffee shops/restaurants: one in Salina and one in Hays, Kansas. Mokas offers unique coffee drinks and specialty sandwiches, wraps and salads in their three locations.
