Hot Fries Cost Comparisons

About Hot Fries

Never heard “gooder” before? That’s okay, you’ve never seen an opportunity like this before, either. Maybe we’ve let all that seasonings go to our heads, but we like to stay on top of the trends by offering an extensive menu with a local edge that includes regionalized fries, chicken and drinks. Hot Fries is hot because we’re everything that mega corporations aren’t. Passionate people instead of cold-hearted committees. Cooked-with-care instead of made-by-
machine. Got-your-back instead of stab-in-the-back. If this sounds like your kind of business, we’ll be proud to have you.

We start with the finest potatoes, slice them for maximum crispiness, flash-fry them to a perfect golden brown, and hand-season them while they’re hot.
That’s what turns regular fries into Hot Fries!

Hot Fries came into existence in order to offer to the world the best potatoes ever. Beside the fries, we have formulated a variety of special seasonings to enhance your experience when enjoying our fries. Our packaging, in which we serve the fries, has been designed so that you can eat the fries while walking around or enjoy them while sitting. It is our goal that you enjoy the tastes offered by Hot Fries as well as the experience of choosing, ordering and consuming our specialties that feature no trans fat oils & support sustainable farming!
