What the Fries - Charlotte
What The Fries started out as a FedEx delivery truck-turned-food truck helmed by Jamie Barnes and Greg Williams in August 2015. The Black-owned mobile joint became so popular, making $116,000 in its first year, and was finally approved for a loan by the Small Business Administration, opening its first brick and mortar in March 2021. The name accurately describes the concept. It’s fries—but think gourmet, hand-cut and loaded fries that eat like a full three-course meal. Crab rangoon fries come stacked with lump crab and cream cheese fritters, Yum Yum Sauce, scallions and crispy wontons, drizzled to perfection with sweet and sour sauce. And mac and cheese fans will lose their mind over the mac and cheese fries topped with pasta shells, Boursin cheese sauce, Gouda and asiago cheeses, and parsley. (Pro tip: add lobster.) Tater tots can be subbed out and the oxtail quesadilla is a heavy hitter. Wash it all down with a milkshake and roll out completely satisfied. The food truck is officially on the road again so follow along here.
