Black Business Spotlight: Mr. Fries Man

Many of us live by the quote of “Tough times don’t last, tough people do.” Well, one man who went through some tough times has found a way to not only better himself but provide for his family and shed new light in the community. Mr. Fries Man is here to serve your soul and taste buds for years to come.
Mr. Fries Man is restaurant in Gardena, Ca that specializes in different types of fries. The Owner, Craig Batiste, started his business in 2016 when times were not looking so good for his family. With his fiancé being laid off and Bastiste being unhappy at his job with Pepsi, they decided to start their own business venture. They have not looked back since and have found enormous success in the food industry.

“When we first started, we were kinda unorganized. We didn’t think we were gonna get this big. We had to come up with time slots every other hour. 11, 12, 2:30 and 5,” Batiste

They started off at a number of different locations but were always harassed from other local businesses until they were able to secure a solid building in Gardena.

There are plenty of different fries and toppings to choose from when you visit Mr. Fries Man. From snow crab, lemon garlic shrimp, and bbq steak fries Mr. Fries Man has provided locals with a one of a kind delicacy that keeps them coming back.

With a growing fan base, Batiste hopes to share his food everywhere possible.

“I see it going everywhere. United States, Europe, Asia, etc. It’s going everywhere that’s where I see it.
