Powered By Fries is For Sale


For sale: Popular, turn-key, Belgian Specialty Street Frites food truck powered by 100% Straight Vegetable Oil from the truck.

Changes in our ownership team require us to sell our popular, award-winning food truck: Powered By Fries. Powered by Fries is the concept of James Beard nominated chef Sean Wilson. Belgian frites are twice fried, crunchy-on-the-outside-fluffy-in-the-middle fries served either with gourmet sauces or topped as in our signature Kimchi fry or the Fry DeBurgo. The truck was wildly popular in Des Moines and has been written about in food blogs, newspaper articles, public television and social media.

The truck can be purchased either on it’s own or in conjunction with other collaterals to make it a turnkey business including: a top-shelf website, award winning design, professional photography, a built-in social media following/fanbase, event leads, recipes and equipment.
