Only french fry franchise?? Fry life?

Anybody tried the French Fry Heaven fries??
 
I am wondering if a FRY only place can work.  I also figure they cook to order because fries don't last long after they are done. McD's has  fry life at 7 minutes. 
 
The guys at this franchise use an auto fry. Still I wonder how fast it can make fries. 
 
comments??

    I heard of a few places out here in CA that were fry only places, but never made much of a hit. I think they are all gone now. I think that most people want fries as a side instead of a main dish.

    I have seen this place on the Food Network and the Travel Channel and if there was one in Columbus, I would definitely go.  I lived next to Belgium for 3 years and Brussels for 1 year.......so I got hooked on pommes frites!

    Like Lisa said, Pommes Frites in NYC, I was there last June. What I like was, we stopped off there, bought an order of fries with a few signature dip, it's all about the dips. It wasn't a meal, it was a great tasting because we  were on our way to Katz's Deli for a Monster Pastrami sandwich. Can it work, yes it could in the right location. A food court in a Mall would work, Tourist locations would also work...........good luck...........pnwc

    There was a guy in Bavay, France that had a "food cart" before that name was invented.  He sold frites and grilled sausages out of his trailer in the summer.  You had to wait in line for at least one hour.  But the frites saucisses were to die for.  Nobody minded waiting!

    We have a couple french fry only trucks down here and they do well at events.  Think its a hard sell for a business/school/etc lunch unless they accompany another truck

    What about adding poutine and chili cheese fries? Add canned soda and people can get a real meal.

    i recall several food court locations of Boardwalk Fries that opened in the mid-'80's in the DC Metro Area.  The ones i recall were in Potomac Mills and Ballston Common. 
     
    They imitated the legendary Thrasher's of Ocean City, MD.
     
    As I recall, one of their franchisees was Mark Moseley who, for the Redskins, was the last of the 'straight-on' place-kickers. 
     
    Later, Mark hooked up with Jerry Murrell and helped in the franchising of Jerry's concept:  Five Guys.
