French Fries

Getting into the french fry truck business, and was wandering if anyone could help me out. I just need to know on average the amount of orders a 48.5Lb bag of potatos will produce. thanks Darren

    That all depends on your portion size...what else is served on the fries...a price point...etc.

    Those are individual factors that are unique to you...based on your customer base. You will know that best. You have to know that and learn by get to gettin.

    Here is a fry truck for a reference...

    Pommes Frites, is all you need to know. Take a look at their New York City store. They serve the fries in Cones, that will work for a Truck. The cone info is also on their web site. Take a look at the pictures on Yelp, it's all about crispy, crunchy, hot, meaty, salty, and offering a lot of signature dipping sauces.......................pnwc
