Virtual Dining Concepts (VDC), the leading company in virtual dining, announces the successful acquisition of dynamic food delivery brand, Man vs Fries. Renowned for its Instagram-famous french fry-based meals, Man vs Fries joins Virtual Dining Concepts’ diverse portfolio of brands like Pardon My Cheesesteak, Creators’ Kitchen As Seen on TikTok and MrBeast Burger. Since acquiring the brand, VDC has catapulted it to great success, nearly tripling the number of stores for the brand in just three months and is now available for delivery from 130 locations in 49 cities across the nation. Among the hundreds of locations, the brand is popular across college campuses like Texas A&M University, NorthWest Missouri State University and the University of Findlay. 

“William Bonhorst has done an incredible job with the Man vs Fries brand, as it’s truly one of the standouts in the digital food service space with a loyal following and global reach,” Robbie Earl, the President and Co-Founder of VDC, says. “We’re excited to take this brand to the next level, attracting new audiences across the nation and around the world.”

Following the acquisition, VDC spearheaded several partner signings for pop-ups, teaming up with popular brands like On the Border Mexican Grill & Cantina, Casa Ole, Monterey’s Little Mexico, UBERRITO Fresh Mex, Tortuga Mexican Kitchen and more. Man vs Fries fans are able to visit brick-and-mortar locations and order their favorite dishes right off the in-house menu, a component that generates higher sales for Man vs Fries and the restaurants offering its menu. In some cases, the brand is reaching upwards of $6,000.00 per store in weekly sales. With VDC’s vast industry knowledge and nationwide network, Man vs Fries sales are on track to exceed $50 million in sales in 2024 alone. VDC also aims to expand the brand to 1,500 stores by the end of the year.

“We are focused on driving significant sales into our partner restaurants through this innovative and exciting collaboration with Man vs Fries! We are taking the opportunity to pair the right brick-and-mortar concepts with a brand that is complementary and synergistic. This new approach to strategic curation is culminating in a win/win, with increased traditional, on-menu sales, and additional digital sales maximizing profitability with our partners.” The COO of VDC, Adam Robin exclaimed while describing this new partnership.

While VDC continues to expand to large, mid, and small restaurant partners, handling the brands’ day-to-day operations and overall business development, the culture of the beloved brand will continue to be driven by Man vs Fries founder, William Bonhorst. 

“Man vs Fries has a cult following and a robust presence in the foodie scene,” says Bonhorst. “I’m eager to watch Virtual Dining Concepts’ team leverage their experience to introduce our brand to new partners worldwide. I am excited for the future and the new culinary experiences this venture will bring to our fans!”
