Though the New York Fries concept was originally founded in New York City, New York Fries is actually a 30-plus-year-old Canadian brand, with more than 120 locations in Canada and over 45 international locations.

It all starts with quality

The key to the brand’s success? A focus on serving the best French fries, ever. It starts with purchasing the best ingredients – premium, grade-A potatoes and non-hydrogenated, 100 per cent sunflower oil – and using a unique three-stage cooking process to create hot, crisp French fries; delicious on their own, or as a base for a variety of the brand’s gourmet poutines.

The brand’s delectable menu includes a whole host of savory treats that are designed to appeal to a wide variety of preferences. Classic, skin-on fries are joined by iconic poutine, which can be paired with a whole host of meat options: butter chicken, pulled pork, and beef chili are just a few fan favorites.

But that’s not all! Despite its namesake, New York Fries also offers a selection of hot dogs, including a pulled pork dog, and a poutine dog that combines the best that Canada and the States have to offer.

The complete package

New York Fries’ operations, systems, and marketing are designed to provide customers with a premium fast-food experience, and its franchisees with excellent support and profit potential. The New York Fries business model boasts:

  • High profitability
  • Industry-leading food and labor costs
  • Simple operational execution
  • Low upfront costs
  • Small foodcourt footprint
  • Existing international footprint

The exciting part of the New York Fries model is the simplicity in its operations and its exceptional unit economics. The brand’s products are made fresh in-store each day and are gluten-free, vegan, and fully customizable to your market.
