About this project

Our loyal following has grown so much in the last nine years. Our fans have become family and what started out as a way to support our families became our joy. We recently just finished filming with the Food Network Channel (Like us on Facebook for the release date coming this summer!) as well as receiving many invitations to some very big and reputable shows and want to thank all of you for making our incredible success possible.

Our vision is to make Sweet Apple Pie Fries!™ a house hold name and take our spin on America’s favorite dessert all across the country!

We have been at fairs and festivals for the last nine years, however we have more invitations than we have man power. After numerous requests to bring Sweet Apple Pie Fries!™ all across the country we realized we had a great "problem".

The demand for growth became so much that we realized we had a decision to make. Do we take on the whole country with a corporate route or do we give this amazing opportunity back to our fans with the option to rock their own Sweet Apple Pie Fries!™ stand? The decision was obvious.

To make franchising possible we need the funds. In this industry you get what you pay for. After much research, legal counsel, and a trip to Chicago, we have found our fairy godmother to turn our apple into a pie...fry!

Your support will fund the following: 

Risks and challenges

While challenges and obstacles present themselves in any endeavor, one of the reasons we chose franchising is to minimize the "Risk" of traditional business. However, even with this route challenges do occur.

With the ever changing laws of franchising, legal fillings, and state to state regulations things can be confusing and complicated. Oftentimes, businesses face multiple road blocks when expanding outside their local service area.

To prevent this problem we have aligned ourselves with some powerhouse attorneys that specialize specifically in franchise expansion on a global level. With nearly 40 years in business and over 20 international offices, it’s reassuring to know that we will be ahead of the curve when entering new territories.

We believe that when our growth strategy is coupled with your faith and investment we will see our Oregon grown business blossom nationwide :)

So from our Pie Fry Family to yours, we want to thank you for your support in Funding the Fries!!!!
