Ribbon Cutting: French Fry Heaven

ff1 ff1
Entrepreneurs, Dr. Nikesh and Paresh Jasani are helping give gourmet fries the credit they deserve by opening their very own French Fry Heaven in the First Colony Mall. The new shop features gourmet French fries in 50 different flavors and making a splash on the Sugar Land-area food scene. At the base of French Fry Heaven’s menu are Belgian style fries, or “Angels” that are crunchy on the outside and fluffy on the inside, and sweet potato fries, or “Saints.” The fries come topped with a choice of 50-plus flavors from salty to sweet to satisfy all types of taste buds. Customers can choose from the most popular menu item – Belgian style fries topped with Garlic Parmesan with Black Truffle salt, or opt for something sweet such as the Festival, which dresses up sweet potato fries with delicious toppings that make the snack taste just like a funnel cake.

Navroz Message from Executive Director

Navroz Mubarak Message
For Ismaili Chamber Newsletter
March 2014

On behalf of the American Ismaili Chamber of Commerce, I would like to wish you and your families Navroz Mubarak.

Navroz signifies a time of spiritual and physical revitalization. Navroz ushers in a spirit of gratitude and offers hope and optimism for the future. Thus, we should all take a moment and take stock of what we have and be thankful for those blessings. At the same time, we should set goals for ourselves and determine how we plan to achieve these goals. These goals represent the promise of tomorrow and our plan to reach these goals represents the intellect of mankind.

This past year has held a lot key moments for the Chamber – creating nearly $4 Million dollars in business interaction within the Ismaili Chamber membership. This was achieved through Investment Opportunities, a Trade Mission, B2B Referrals, and Connections. We have held 30 events including a Trade Mission to Calgary. In 2014, our goal is to create over $20 Million dollars in business interaction within the Ismaili Chamber membership. We hope to organize more Trade Missions and networking events.

Members continue and will always remain at the core of the goals and the pathway to realize these goals. I take this time to offer our gratitude to our members. I also challenge the Membership to bring more Investment Opportunities forward. Members should utilize the Ismaili Chamber platform to invest capital as well raise capital for their business ideas. Let’s work together to reach our financial and professional goals. Once again, I extend a warm Navroz Mubarak to you and your families.
