How is this not already here?

French Fry Heaven is, according to its own press, "the first and best concept in the gourmet fry category" -- thereby introducing said gourmet fry market. Based in Jacksonville, Fla., this is a franchise concept that offers what it calls "Angels" and "Saints." Those are Belgian-style fries (crunchy outside, fluffy inside, regular potato) and sweet potato fries. Each can be topped with a choice of more than 50 toppings, from garlic parmesan with black truffle salt to "the Festival": a treatment that makes sweet potato fries taste like funnel cake. The original opened in October 2011. Now three locations are open, with 69 "in the pipeline," planned from Texas to Massachusetts, according to the company.
