Greg Lloyd Smith is regarded by some as a con-man and international fraudster, but to us he’s the creator of the brilliant SpudsToGo brand and (currently dormant) franchise opportunity. Now you can own this Greg Lloyd Smith branding masterpiece at a price that seems tuber good to be true!
(UnhappyFranchisee.Com) Greg Lloyd Smith’s philosophy after launching the SpudsToGo franchise opportunity must have been: If at first you don’t succeed, fry, fry again!
Greg Lloyd Smith introduced his SpudsToGo franchise in 2007 with an amazing offer: a 10 cent franchise fee!
Remarkably, it appears no one bit.
Smith made the mistake of publishing his introductory press release on the scandalous franchise site BlueMauMau.org, (“Want To Own Your Own Business? Gotta Dime?”) where it was met with instant derision by an unruly mob of know-it-all franchise attorneys, writers and consultants who completely missed the potential of the concept.
The resulting SpudsToGo comments section contained a barrage of attacks on the SpudsToGo mascot and Greg Lloyd Smith got so vicious and unruly that one of Smith’s aliases, Brian Richards, had to call the police!
Some of these cretins even had the nerve to suggest that the lively, loveable potato character (Which some affectionately dubbed Spuddie Pie) more resembles a large piece of excrement than a delicious and nutrient-chocked potato.
Own a Piece of the Greg Lloyd Smith Legacy!

Greg Lloyd Smith Legacy: Haters Gonna Hate, Taters Gonna Tate
They say po-ta-to, we say po-tah-to.
