Derby’s Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers officially marked its expansion with a large donation to a nonprofit group.

The Wichita-based restaurant chain donated $10,000 to the national nonprofit Kids In Need Foundation Nov. 29 in a brief ceremony at the eatery, 2100 N. Rock Rd.

The donation stems from National Frozen Custard Day, which was held

Aug. 8. At that time, the company sold its single cone and dish custard treats for $1.

It pledged to donate half of its sales from that promotion to one of two nonprofit children’s organizations based on whichever organization received the most votes from guests of Freddy’s restaurants across the nation.

Kids In Need received the most votes. Locally, funds will be used through Project Teacher Wichita.

Along with the donation, company officials also marked the recent completion of a 1,000-square-foot expansion, which added more room to the south side of the eatery along with creating additional kitchen space.
