FriesDAO scoops up fast food franchises as part of its crypto governance experiment By


A new proof of concept decentralized autonomous organization, or DAO, called FriesDAO wants to democratize access to the fast food industry. Cointelegraph spoke to FriesDAO advisors Brett Beller and Bill Lee about their mission to be a “part of something that will connect crypto and virtual ownership to real-world assets.”

FriesDAO aims to acquire and scale fast food restaurant franchises like Popeye’s, Burger King and Taco Bell by inviting FRIES token holders to run a decentralized network of Quick Service Restaurants, or QSR. Starting with Subway franchise owners, the FriesDAO team hopes to guide their partners about the blockchain space. What “started as a joke” turned into a serious proposition when they realized there “was a hole for people that were ready to run DAOs more like a business.”
