The Five Guys Joke That People Can't Stop Sharing On Twitter
By AMBERLY MCKEE
A Twitter user posted a joke referencing french fry servings at Five Guys restaurants. The tweet read, "Five Guys when you ask for medium fries," and included a short video of a large truck transporting and dumping hundreds of potatoes. Twitter replies included, "I ain't complaining," and "I'm just there enjoying it."
A former Five Guys employee explained why the chain serves so many extra fries to Pop Sugar, revealing, "They told us during training that it's to make customers think they're getting a big bargain. And you can ask for the cup with no topper if you want." "Topper" refers to fries that overfill the bag rather than fit into the cup.
Chad Murrell, one of the founder's sons, told Food Republic, "I won't name names, but other restaurants just don't give a satisfying amount of fries. We always give an extra scoop. I say load 'em up and make sure they get their money's worth." The original tweet has 24.1 thousand retweets at the time of writing.
