Amanda Leigh-Walker

Co-founder & owner, Lord of the Fries & Weirdoughs

Amanda is co-founder/owner of Lord of the Fries, purveyors of Australia’s favourite fries with a side of vegan burgers, hot dogs and more. Hailing from Toronto, Canada (and moonlighting as ‘The Lord’ herself), Amanda’s journey to co-founding LOTF began when she met her future husband and co-founder Mark in Taiwan while teaching English.

 

With a shared passion for their favourite food, fries and creating food made with love, not animals, in 2004 LOTF was born. On a mission to create a fast-food alternative that considered the health of the people, the planet and the animals, Mark’s brother, Sam joined the pair to help transition LOTF from festival-going food truck to a bricks and mortar QSR.


Fifteen years on, Amanda has supported LOTF grow to 23 stores and establish an international presence. She enjoys the challenge of evolving and improving the business so that all involved enjoy the benefits of doing great work and creating great food. Spreading more great tasting vegan love, she is now also a proud partner in Melbourne’s new plant baked goods brand, Weirdoughs. Alongside hospitality work, Amanda works with women in business as a mentor and coach to clarify their vision and bring their passion and purpose to life, with an aim to lead others toward a life they love. She runs workshops and speaks publicly to inspire others to live their dreams.
