KENNEWICK, Wash - If you like french fries, you will love this...
Lamb Weston, America's number one french Fry company and sponsor of the Columbia Cup Hydroplane boat races, is giving away free servings of french fries to kick off water follies weekend!
"We thought this would be a great way to strengthen the tie between Lamb Weston and fries and what it is we do. And also work with our restaurant partners to help build some traffic in their locations and just kick off the weekend with a splash." Says Lisa Bescherer, Director of Marketing at Lamb Weston.
Most restaurants are expecting to double the amount of fries that go out the door and have ordered accordingly.
"This is really a gesture to the community.. this is not a stunt to drive our sales especially...and I think we can handle it given our global scale." Explains David Richardson, Vice President Finance Lamb Weston.
