New York Fries growth in U.S. continues with second LI opening


After starting in New York over 40 years ago, New York Fries is back in the state with two locations on Long Island.

The company, which originated on New York City’s South Street in 1983 before expanding to Canada, began opening locations in the U.S. earlier this year.

The expansion commenced in January with the launch of a food cart at Roosevelt Field in Garden City, followed by locations in New Jersey, one in Edison in February and another in Jersey City in April.

Last month, the fry shop opened its latest outpost at Smith Haven Mall’s food court in Lake Grove on May 22.

“This New York opening marks a significant milestone for us,” says Craig Burt, chief operating officer at New York Fries. “As a brand that got its start serving three sizes of fresh-cut fries and three sizes of soda in New York City back in 1983, we’re thrilled to make our official return and bring our fry-based menu to fry-lovers across the state and eventually across the East Coast.” 

For those unfamiliar, New York Fries is exactly what you might think: a French fry shop.

According to the company, NYF differentiates itself by cooking its freshly cut potatoes in non-hydrogenated sunflower oil using a unique, three-stage method. They also offer a variety of dips to choose from. Additionally, they serve hot dogs, poutine, and loaded fries.

New York Fries currently has over 100 locations in Canada, as well as 25 in the Middle East. To learn more about the company click here.
