We answer your questions about our salads, fruit and veggies.

What are your fries made of?

Our World Famous Fries are made from premium potatoes selected for their quality, taste and size. Our trusted suppliers cut, par-fry and freeze them before sending to the restaurants via refrigerated trucks. They are then cooked in our special Canola blend oil, so you get them crispy and hot.

Why do you use beef extract in your fries?
