Our founder had the privilege of living in Belgium when he was a young child. Belgium is famous for their specially prepared french fries; they call them pommes frites. He never forgot the taste, and had a dream to bring this incredible french fry eating experience to people in the US.
Our name pays homage to Pommes Frites, the amazing french fries made famous in Belgium.
Simple, we pronounce it "Freet-z".
We use only the best U.S. grown Russet potatoes.
We use premium salt, naturally harvested from the Mediterranean sea.
Yes, we are happy to fulfill this request, just ask when you order.
We fry in high quality Peanut oil.
Our french fries are 100% gluten free. We only ever cook fries, from fresh potatoes, in our fryers. This guarantees the peanut oil is not contaminated by any items not suitable to a gluten free diet.
We only ever cook fresh potatoes in our fryers, making our fries a great choice for those seeking vegan, or vegetarian options. We also offer vegan and vegetarian friendly meals, toppings, and dipping sauces.
We are planning on expanding nationally; however, right now enjoy at our flagship store in the Lehigh Valley mall in Whitehall, PA!
We toss them in a special frites tosser, imported from Europe, to perfectly coat them with our premium salt.
It is the care we take and the process we follow when making our fries. We hand cut the potatoes, soak them overnight, fry them twice and serve them to order so they are always piping hot!
In Belgium, pommes frites are usually cooked in animal fat (beef, horse, and duck) where at Frites we use a healthier, delicious peanut oil.
Everything we offer is based around our perfect French fries!
We have our teas custom crafted by the Art of Tea, a specialty tea supplier!
We serve our perfect fries with a custom blended truffle salt.
All of our sauces are prepared in our store, to guarantee the freshest eating experience possible. However, we import our 'frites sauce' from Europe to ensure our customers enjoy the authentic Pommes Frites experience.
Frites sauce is one of our more popular dipping sauces, one that we import from Europe. The best way to describe it is a "sweet mayonnaise".
We accept most major credit cards, including VISA, Master Card, Discover, and American Express.
We are currently exploring opportunities to expand into new markets.
Our fries are always cooked to order, yet only take a few minutes. We do not offer call ahead ordering, because we believe that our fries should always be served steaming hot, moments after being cooked.
