Spudz Fries Go Big: Join National Distribution with KeHE

Spudz, a D.C.-based frozen fry company in the Union Kitchen Accelerator, is launching into KeHe, a national natural organic, specialty, and fresh food distribution network. The launch of Spudz Seasoned Fries into KeHE's network is a significant milestone for the company. KeHE is a well-known national distributor that specializes in bringing high-quality food and beverage products to customers across the country.

At Spudz, they are committed to using only the highest quality ingredients in their products and owning their manufacturing from start to finish. All of Spudz potatoes are sourced from Idaho and each ingredient used is free of preservatives and chemicals. Spudz offers fries in classic sea salt, rosemary garlic, and Chesapeake bay flavors. 

Spudz is owned and operated by the owners of Swizzler, a popular food truck and brick & mortar operation in Washington, D.C. Jesse Konig and Ben Johnson founded Swizzler during their college days at Wake Forest University, and have been running two food trucks for the past six years that specialize in everyday American eats, including hamburgers, hot dogs, and, of course, french fries! As Jesse puts it, “It’s fun nostalgic foods without the mystery meat.” 

After graduation, Jesse and Ben relocated the business to DC, Ben’s hometown. They bought their first food truck in October 2014 and started selling their specialty dogs. With many eager requests from hungry customers, the Swizz team expanded their menu to include burgers and fries. They realized, through these daily interactions with customers, that there was a huge opportunity to reclaim American eats. Why does eating fast food have to leave you with that hangover feeling? “We believe that fast food can be a force for good. Our purpose is to share the joys of fast food, while leaving people and the planet for better. We aim to raise the bar for fast food: we call it Real American Eats,” as explained on the Swizzler site.
