#getfried Fry Café, a quick-serve restaurant franchise that offers a variety of gourmet topped french fries, announced an exclusive master franchise agreement signed for the MENA region with World Franchise Associates, an international franchise development company with business presence in the MENA, Europe, the Americas, and Southeast Asia.
World Franchise Associates will become an exclusive #getfried master franchisee through the partnership, and with the ability to sub-franchise the concept in 32 countries, the franchise group is planning for aggressive development throughout the Middle East in the coming months.
“We are extremely excited to form this partnership with a leader in international franchise development and we are confident that World Franchise Associates will help grow #getfried with qualified investors in this part of the world,” says Chris Covelli, founder of #getfried.
At #getfried, guests customize their own unique fry dishes in just a few minutes. The menu offers five styles of fries and more than 20 sauces, seasonings, and toppings. Fries can be topped with shredded chicken, ground beef, or chili, and can then add toppings like chipotle seasoning, gravy, Nutella, hummus, or truffle oil.
“With fries being an iconic and most loved food around the world and with innovative and delicious, easy-to-eat-and-to-carry-away gourmet fries menu and scalable low-investment store model, we believe that #getfried presents a lucrative franchise opportunity in the Middle East region,” says Sary Hamway, director of World Franchise Associates.
#getfried currently operates two U.S. locations in western New York and in addition to international growth, the quick-serve chain is also focused on domestic expansion, specifically targeting college towns and campuses throughout the Northeast region, and major cities such as Las Vegas, Atlanta, Miami, and New York City.
