Georgia Fries opens downtown

January 5, 2006

Albany -- If you love french fries, you'll want to try a new restaurant in downtown Albany. Businessman Peter Studl opened Georgia Fries, on Broad Avenue, Thursday afternoon.

The homemade fries are double-fried. And there's a long list of sauces and toppings, from chili and cheese to marinara sauce. Studl hopes to expand the restaurant to other cities and is getting some help from students at Albany State.

"For the first few weeks, this is a test kitchen. We're developing a concept for expansion through a franchise network. We're working with Albany State University's business school, as a case study for franchise development," said Studl.

Peter Studl has bought 175,000 square feet of building space in downtown Albany. He's already opened Hubbles restaurant and Popcorn in the Park.

He says he's also opening a unique pizza place in a couple months.
