This Big Chain Restaurant, That You Definitely Eat at, is Switching to Only Maine Potatoes!
Maine is famous for so many different things, right? We have Maine lobster, Stephen King, wild blueberries, Patrick Dempsey, great skiing, gorgeous forests and of course our delicious Maine potatoes.
It should come as no surprise that since we produce such incredible spuds, that a national chain restaurant has decided to switch over to exclusively using Maine grown potatoes.
You've definitely had a great meal at a great deal at the nines a few times in your life, and now when you go back you'll be able to taste the delightful deliciousness of Maine in every potato-ie bite!
According to WMTW News 8, the chain is committing to using Maine spuds at their New England and upstate New York restaurants. That equates to 103 Ninety Nine locations that will be using exclusively Maine potatoes! Four of those locations are in Maine.
You can find Maine potatoes in several menu items including French fries, mashed potatoes, potato skins. The baked spuds will be 100% Caribou Russets while all the other potato offerings will be a mixture of different Maine potatoes.
Don Flannery, Director of the Maine Potato Board, told WMTW,
“We believe the Maine Potato is the best potato in the country. Ninety Nine is a great restaurant, and a great company with strong New England roots. It has been a delight to work with their team to ensure quality local agriculture being used in their restaurants. Dining out is a treat. And dining out with food that is locally sourced is even better. We are thrilled with this relationship and are excited about the future.”
