Work is Continuing at Former Perkins on Route 37 in Toms River, New Jersey
It has been several years since the Perkin's Pancake House was open on Route 37 in Toms River, but it looks like there is work continuing at the former Perkins' location. Crews can be seen at the location and there is not much left with the "Perkins" name on it at this location.
Do you miss the former Perkins' restaurant? or has it been long enough now that there isn't much of a connection there at this point? After a couple of years of being dark, seems like forever since I was even inside this location. It will be exciting as the new tenants continue their transformation of the property.
According to a recent article from Jersey Shore Online, "The Perkins at 149 Route 37 East closed in the summer of 2020. The restaurant’s location previously housed a Denny’s for many years and prior to that a Bob’s Big Boy restaurant."
In addition, the article cited that the new location will in deed house Freddy's Frozen Custard and Steakburgers, it will be a drive-thru location in Toms River. Jersey Shore Online reported “It’s a nice building, it’s a pretty building, and I think they’ll do very well there,” said Ron Rosetto, founder and president of the Rosetto Realty Group.
Freddy's was founded in 2002 by Bill Simon, Randy Simon, and Scott Redler in Kansas. The restaurant was named after Bill and Randy's Father "Freddy" who was a World War II Veteran. Freddy Simon’s family values and patriotic service to his country are the foundation of the restaurant concept.
So construction continues at the new Freddy's and according to the Jersey Shore Online report, they hope to open sometime in "late spring or early summer" in Toms River. We look forward to this new franchise coming to Ocean County, the first ever here for the County.
