Our Mission Statement
At Boise Fry Co., we strive to serve you with the most incredible fries, burgers, and service a company can offer!
In an effort to make our entire process green, natural, and sustainable we use all natural, local, and whenever feasible, organic products. We produce little to no waste. We use Energy Star appliances and lights. We recycle our sunflower seed oil in cars. We’re just trying our best to make as little impact on your cholesterol and our planet as possible.
For the first time in our lives, we did our homework. We studied fry preparation methods from the beginning of fries until present. We tested cooking methods from New York to Paris. We debated serving methods. We took naps. After months of labor, we developed a fry that is uniquely Idahoan, and most importantly tasty. So whether you call them frites, taters, fries, or chips we know you’ll enjoy the vegetable of our labor.
Here’s the method we developed: We obtain the finest and freshest potatoes available from M&M Heath Farms in Buhl, Idaho. We prepare each potato, with love, and follow a strict regiment to ensure each fry retains its quality and amazing flavor. All our potatoes are fried in natural GMO-free sunflower oil, and are unsalted so you get to choose from any of our homemade seasonings and dipping sauces. So, for example, you could dip your curly Yukon gold fry, spritzered with malt vinegar and sprinkled with smoked sea salt, in blueberry ketchup. Or dip an unsalted home-style sweet potato fry in chipotle aioli. We have as many variations as you have personalities – over 100,000 in fact.
Does our method make a healthier fry? We think so. We’d don’t fry the goodness out of the potato; the nutrients remain from the potato to the fry. We don’t peel, mash, or stuff our potatoes; everything that’s healthy about potatoes stays. We don’t fry our fries with preservatives, MSG, and trans fats; sunflower seed oil contains little to no bad fats (saturated and trans) and plenty of good fats (monounsaturated and polyunsaturated). We don’t exclusively serve potatoes high on the glycemic index (GI); sweet potatoes and yams have low GI ratings. And finally, we don’t adulterate our fries with processed toppings; only the finest homemade seasonings and sauces coat our fries. We’re not saying that our fries will lower your risk for heart disease (though they might – who knows? – we haven’t conducted the research yet), but we are saying that you shouldn’t feel guilty about eating our fries.
Our bison is local, fresh, natural, grass-fed and finished. Our beef is regional, fresh, natural, grass-fed, and grass and grain finished. Both are hand-seasoned and formed with Boise Fry Co’s secret recipes. Our vegan burgers are made with black bean and organic, fair-trade certified, and high protein quinoa. And our organic wholewheat potato buns are baked fresh every day.
