First, a little bit O history. Towards the end of 2010 Scott and Jennifer Nelowet took his parents to Europe for their 50th anniversary trip, which had been their dream. While there, Scott and Jennifer discovered the magical, delicious and ubiquitous frites stands that dotted seemingly every street corner and road around. Knowing America’s natural affinity for the best french fries, cool new cuisine and killer design, they knew they had to hatch their own version of a fry stand, American style! the French Fry Heaven idea was born!
Upon returning home, Scott left his cushy college administration post for life on the open road, selling the best French Fries on earth at festivals, fairs and concerts. We never said he was smart. Their very first festival was a veganfest, so while placing flavor first, they started French Fry Heaven with an eye towards Vegans and Vegetarians. With Jennifer, Abby (their daughter) and their friends by his side, they quickly gained a reputation around the state of Florida for serving what many considered the best french fries in the country. In short order and after much research, they launched their first store, a kiosk in Jacksonville, Florida which gained notoriety for several things, the best french fries, the most creative topping designs and long lines of passionate customers.
With the demand so great, others soon jumped into the fray to open other FFH location all over the country. For whatever reason, lots of folks got the idea that the ideal place to open a stand was in a shopping mall, cause those were always going to be a “the” place to shop and spend the day; oops! Thanks Amazon!
From our humble beginnings many years ago as a food court kiosk and food truck in Jacksonville, Fla., French Fry Heaven has evolved into something more. Something better. We’ve kept the best of our original concept including our Peter Max-esque, pop culture; psychedelic vibe and we’ve combined that with the partnership and infrastructure of one of the heavy hitters in food – the private, Jacksonville-based parent company behind the Peterbrooke Chocolatier franchise and the Bubba Burger brand. Now we’re evolved from our mall-based past and grow into a totally new kind of fast casual restaurant that is hell-bent on french fry dominance. WE ARE HEAVEN!
ETC., There are numerous other wonderful things about French Fry Heaven, but frankly, if you are not convinced at this point, we just can’t help you!
