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.
