Get Fried — Buffalo, N.Y.
Get Fried — the 12-unit, quick-service loaded French fry chain — announced in August that it had been acquired by ZorAbility, the North Carolina-based franchise advisory firm from Sam Ballas, president and CEO of East Coast Wings + Grill.
The French fry brand, which mainly has a mall and food truck footprint, was founded by owners Chris Covelli and Garrett Green in 2015 and now sells other comfort foods like wings and fried Oreos in addition to its signature fries.
In preparation for smart expansion to heavily trafficked areas like malls, college towns, sports arenas, casinos, airports, gas stations, and move theaters, Get Fried’s headquarters will move from Buffalo to Winston-Salem, N.C.
In 2020, the company plans to open at least 10 new locations, although franchising agreements have not yet been signed.
