The History of the French fry

Since Ye Olde Chip Truck first opened its doors in 1957, we have cooked every single fry in the same way - and its made us famous!

Starting with a box of real, fresh Jumbo reds grown locally by Manitoba farmers, Ye Olde Chip Truck fries are hand cut, in each truck during the day. The potatoes are then cooked to order in trans fat free oil. Our unique cooking process perfected over five decades, is designed to seal in the flavour and nutrients of the potato and the results are a crispy lightly golden french fry.

Each cup of "Chip Truck" fries is cooked right when you order to ensure you get the best fries possible, hot and crisp on the outside, and fluffy like a baked potato on the inside.

Present day owners, Daniel Thomson and Ryan Landon are proud owners of the Ye Olde Chip Truck fleet. Locals of Kenora since birth, both owners are 20 years old and ready to make Kenora the best destination possible for locals and tourists in the summer. Voted as "Canada's Best French Fries" in a national poll by the Globe and Mail in 2007, Ye Olde Chip Truck has lured jet-setting vacationers off their flight plans (J. B. Nethercutt, owner of Merle Norman Cosmetics, once had his plane diverted to Kenora to pick up Ye Olde Chip truck fries.) Even Jean Chretien has braved the long summer lineups for these world famous French fries.
