These Entrepreneurs Have Tripled Sales at Their Food Truck Business Despite Pandemic

Jamie Barnes and Greg Williams, founders of What The Fries

Jamie Barnes and Greg Williams, friends turned business partners, are the chefs and co-owners of What The Fries, one of the most in-demand food trucks in Charlotte, North Carolina. In fact, despite the challenges brought about by the pandemic, they managed to almost triple the sales of their signature loaded fries.
Five years ago, the two men, who met back in college at Johnson and Wales University, started their food truck business right after competing together at the reality show The Great Food Truck. Although they didn’t win in the finals, they continued making loaded fries for their business.

Now, according to Charlotte Magazine, they serve Charlotte’s best-loaded fries from their food truck.

Not an easy beginning

However, they said their first few years were not easy. They worked hard to prove to people that they deserve to be in the business. They started catering to corporate events serving boxed pasta lunches until they were able to buy an old FedEx delivery truck that they converted into a food truck.

Now, the duo is aiming to open their first brick and mortar location around Charlotte. Finding a perfect location came with challenges again as many landlords turned them down thinking they wouldn’t become as successful as they did with the food truck.

Planning for the future

In the next five years, they hope to expand their brand to multiple food trucks and locations as well. With their combined skills and determination as well as their yummy dishes, they are looking forward to more success in the future.

“Be ready to grind and just don’t give up. When you have your own business, there will be days when you want to quit. But, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Once you start seeing the payoff, it will all be worth it.”
