Freddy's Frozen Custard & Steakburgers

by Jacque

A fast-casual restaurant that's new to Middle Georgia is planning to open in Warner Robins.

Wichita, Kansas-based Freddy's Frozen Custard & Steakburgers recently broke ground at 678 Lake Joy Road near the intersection of Lake Joy Road and Ga. 96, according to a news release. The restaurant, which is expected to open this summer, serves ground beef steakburgers, beef hot dogs and shoestring fries as well as desserts including freshly churned frozen custard.

"We're excited to bring our family-friendly restaurant concept to the Warner Robins community," Ray Yarbrough, franchise owner, said in the release. "Our dining experience brings to life the America of the late 1940s and early 1950s."

The eatery will seat about 100 people inside, and it will have a patio and drive-thru window.

The company has 172 franchise locations and 14 company-owned locations, and it has stores in 28 states. In Georgia, in addition to the Warner Robins store, the restaurant is in Athens, Conyers and McDonough with one opening soon in Duluth.

Warner Robins redevelopment plan

by Jacque

Warner Robins' Redevelopment Agency says it's one step closer to bringing more business to the city with a special tax district.

Off Watson Boulevard, the once-booming Commercial Circle shopping center now looks a little more like a ghost town.

But Gary Lee, executive director of the Warner Robins Redevelopment Agency says a tax allocation district will change that.

"This is an opportunity for us to grow and stimulate the revitalization of our downtown area," says Lee.

In a special called meeting Tuesday, the agency agreed to sign a contract with the "Urbanish" company.

They manage tax allocation districts.

On January 1, the city formed a tax allocation district in agreement with the school board and the county. It starts on Armed Forces Boulevard, runs along Watson Boulevard and ends near Commercial Circle and spans a total of 170 acres.

Urbanish will try to bring developers to the district.

The money that comes in through the resulting increased property values will go right back to fund projects in the district.

Lee says they call the area the Government and Education corridor, since it includes City Hall and Middle Georgia State University.

Some of the development plans for the district are a new hotel and conference center, as well as housing.

Tiffany Cox is just opening up her store, Go Girl Boutique, a few doors down.

She says she saw an opportunity being close to Robins Air Force Base, and would like the new customers that future development could bring.

"I'm for anything that could potentially help, not just my business, but any one of these businesses."

Ken McCall has owned his restaurant for almost thirty years. He's seen how the once busy area gradually faded.

"If there's a downtown area, this is the area," he says. "Unfortunately, Warner Robins, through the years, has just kind of become a sprawl."

By city leaders taking this step, he hopes to see Commercial Circle and the city, as a whole, thrive.

Are you a golfer or married to one? I am it appears that I somehow passed that gene to all the males in my family, (Not that I could pass it to my husband but you get what I mean) The boys in my life adore the game of golf, to play to watch, to judge. I on the other hand do not have an athletic bone in my body. But if you are unlike me and love the game of golf then you might be interested to know that the Museum of Aviation is hosting the 25th Annual  Georgia Invitational Golf Tournament, on September 18 & 19, This wonderful event attracts a huge amount of community support.

The Museum of Aviation Foundation is gearing up for its 25th Annual Georgia Invitational Golf Tournament to be held September 18-19 at Houston Lake Country Club, Perry, Georgia. Last year’s event was a great success and Foundation officials are looking forward to another grand event started by former Senator Sam Nunn who still serves as Honorary National Chairman. To date, the tournaments have raised over $5 million to help build and develop the second largest aviation museum in the U.S. Air Force. United States Senator Saxby Chambliss will again serve as the Honorary Chairman of this year's tournament with Honorary Co-Chairmen Senator Johnny Isakson and United States Congressman Austin Scott and Tournament Chairman Eddie Wiggins.

The two-day tournament is the largest golf outing in Middle Georgia and is made up of three separate rounds with separate prizes for each round. Foursomes will compete in a “scramble” handicapped format. Tee times are noon on Thursday and 8 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. on Friday. Golfers receive a commemorative golf shirt, a Thursday night traditional “Plantation Supper” (Century of Flight, Museum of Aviation), breakfast and luncheon buffets. Friday evenings awards dinner will be at Houston Lake Country Club.

Over 60 businesses and individuals annually sign up as sponsors for this large annual Museum of Aviation Foundation fundraiser. “The overwhelming support for this tournament from all over America is outstanding,” said Pat Bartness, President and Chief Operating Officer of the Foundation. “These efforts assure that the Museum of Aviation will continue to be one of the best aviation Museums in America to honor the men and women of our armed forces.”
