16. Have you ever considered having a fleet of french fry food trucks? Food trucks and french fries seem like a great fit.

It’s a great idea. As a starting point we need someone here, locally, in Jacksonville who can run it. We’re a small company that’s growing quickly and we have our hands full with that growth. To launch a whole new aspect to the business would require the right person who could oversee it and make it successful. The right person would have to be able to run the business and also write the how-to guide for other food trucks that would have the French Fry Heaven brand.

17. How long does it take to open a store, from the time a potential franchisee calls you until they’re in business?

For most people it’s a 4 - 6 month process that includes the discussions with us, finding a location, getting the right permits, building a kiosk, hiring staff and so on. Finding the right location, where there’s a lot of foot traffic, is the main thing that can add time. Some people come to us with a location in mind and that speeds things up a lot.

18. How many locations do you have?

We have 18 now [June 2014] with another 5 about to open and 50 in the works. We have two locations in Jacksonville and one in St. Augustine.
