French fry frenzy: Diner aims to down 27 orders in a day


For National French Fry Day, a York man embarked on an unusual quest.

Silas Chamberlin, CEO of Downtown Inc. York, set out to eat an order of fries at 27 city eateries.

Chamberlin says he trained for a month by increasing his french fry intake.

We caught up with him at his eighth stop on his fry crawl: Marcello’s Pizza.

“Downtown York has so many great businesses, this is one way to pack promotion of 27 businesses into a really short period of time,” he said. “We want to get the message out that we have a bunch of great restaurants in downtown York. Hopefully, people will learn more about them and end up coming down as patrons.”
