Get Fried, a french-fry centric, quick-serve restaurant based in Buffalo, continues to expand with newly signed franchise agreements to open stores in Texas, California and in Cairo, Egypt.
Early next month, a Get Fried location will open in Santa Clara, Calif. Another 10 mobile locations are planned for Cairo, Egypt over the next three years, through Premier Food Services, an international food-service company that tested two Get Fried mobile units over the summer. Egypt's first brick-and-mortar store will open in Cairo this winter.
Texas locations include ones at the Deerbrook Mall in Houston, which will open by the end of the month; ones at the University of Texas in Austin and the North Star Mall in San Antonio, which will open early next month; and one in the Deep Ellum neighborhood of Dallas that will open early next year. Another is scheduled for Austin in mid-2018.
Founded by Chris Covelli, Get Fried offers customized french fry dishes and finger foods. 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. It began franchising in 2016 and also has mobile units and food trucks. Locally, it has a restaurant at Fashion Outlets of Niagara Falls. It closed a location at Walden Galleria, saying traffic was not robust enough to justify the price of its rent.
