A popular burgers-and-fries (or is it fries-and-burgers?) restaurant looks like it may be making its way to Austin. The Boise Fry Company opened in 2009 in Idaho serving grass-fed beef and bison burgers and a wide variety of potatoes and cuts of fries.
At BFC, customers can choose from russet, purple, gold, sweet, and Okinawa potatoes or yams, and can have them cut into shoestring, regular, homestyle, or curly shapes, or something called po-balls. The fries come with the choice of several homemade seasonings, spritzers, and dipping sauces to coat your fries.
BFC has already opened a franchise in Portland, and according to their website and TV interview below, it looks like the Texas capital will soon have its own location. No word on the exact location, opening date or franchisee. I’ve emailed the company for a response, but have not heard back.
BFC co-founder Blake Lingle says in the interview below that with expansion, the environmentally conscious restaurant would still focus on sourcing certain items from within a certain radius of the store’s location.
I’ll update you as I learn more about the possible Austin location.
