Locally owned french fry restaurant #getfried has signed its first franchise agreement.

Craig Christopher, a former Subway franchisee, has bought the rights to develop #getfried locations in San Antonio. He plans to open a food truck this summer, and two brick-and-mortar locations next year.

Founded by Chris Covelli, the quick-serve restaurant offers customized french fry dishes. The five kinds of fries offered can be topped with more than 20 sauces, seasonings and toppings such as shredded chicken, nutella or truffle oil. The Texas menu will have additional toppings popular in the San Antonio area.

Last month, #getfried signed a master franchise agreement with World Franchise Associates to develop the concept in the Middle East and North Africa. World Franchise Associates is an international franchise development company operating in those regions as well as Europe, the Americas and Southeast Asia.

The agreement allows World Franchise Associates to sub-franchise the restaurant in 32 countries.

#getfried has locations in Walden Galleria and the Fashion Outlets of Niagara Falls.
