McCain Foods

We know French fries. As the world’s largest producer of French fries, almost every fry-lover has tasted a McCain Foods French fry. While best known for our fries, McCain is a leading producer of innovative potato products and appetizers for retail and foodservice.  But we weren’t always so big. We started small—founded by two brothers, Harrison and Wallace McCain, in 1957 in a tiny rural village in Canada. And for the past 50 years, we’ve stayed true to our hardworking, family-owned roots.

Today, we employ over 20,000 people and operate 57 production facilities on six continents. Our people are committed to doing business the way leaders should. As a leading supplier of frozen potato products and appetizers for the retail and foodservice industries, McCain products and brands can be found in thousands of restaurants and supermarket freezers in more than 130 countries around the world.

When ordering at a restaurant, guests often appreciate the personal recommendation of a knowledgeable and easy-going server. Creating a menu that facilitates upselling—the suggestion of special menu items or food and beverage pairings that enhance the dining experience and warrant an upcharge—pays off for all involved.

Although the trend has been gaining steam for the last several years, small plates still spell opportunity for operators.
