Mr. Fryman is the owner of Beach Citywalk Fries who made his debut in the episode "Laser Light Cannon".


Mr. Fryman is quite tall with a thick build. He has a dijon-colored short beard, black eyes, and thick rosewood-colored eyebrows.

He sports a fry-shaped hairdo with a red visor hat and wears a light dull red T-shirt and white apron. He also wears a pair of dark-gray shorts and yellow shoes.


Mr. Fryman has a very typical adult, no-nonsense type of personality. While he somewhat tolerates the shenanigans of his older son, he is visibly annoyed by them. He takes great pride in the family business and wishes nothing more than for his sons to follow in his footsteps. As such, he reacts negatively towards them if they express feelings to the contrary.

Despite this, he has occasionally shown a gentler and more caring side of himself proving that, like any other parent, he cares deeply for his sons. He also shows a friendly attitude towards Steven. One such moment was when he realized how Peedee felt about wearing the Frybo costume.

However, Mr. Fryman also shows a personality of residing in his 'bubble' of his own reality, not wanting to know what is really out there in the bigger universe. As seen in "Rising Tides, Crashing Skies", he believes he should be concerned about the Crystal Gems and the Homeworld ship invading Earth. Although, due to him believing he is just a normal old guy, he rejects the need to care and should focus on his business.


"Laser Light Cannon"

He first appears in the second episode when Steven and Amethyst demand fry bits from him. Later, his store is partly destroyed by a piece of shrapnel from the defeated Red Eye.


Mr. Fryman also plays an important part in the episode "Frybo". His son, Peedee, dresses up in a mascot costume to promote people getting fries. However, when Steven adds one of the crystals to the Frybo suit so Peedee doesn't have to do his job, the costume comes to life and wreaks havoc on Beach City, attacking many people, including Fryman himself. After he is knocked unconscious, Peedee bravely defends his father, and they hug shortly after. When Steven stops the costume, Fryman is seen giving Frybo a Viking burial, by placing it in a wooden boat and sending it out to sea as it burns.

"Political Power"

Mr. Fryman shows that he trusts and believes that his son, Peedee, is responsible enough to take care of himself more than his older son, Ronaldo who is obsessed with supernatural phenomena.

"Rising Tides, Crashing Skies"

Mr. Fryman seems not to care about Ronaldo's video, instead wanting him to work.

"Restaurant Wars"

After Steven buys mozzarella sticks from Peedee at Beach Citywalk Fries, Kofi Pizza sees him eating them and, pointing out that they contain bread, cheese, and sauce, the three fundamental ingredients of pizza, believes that Fryman is infringing on his business and starts selling fries at Fish Stew Pizza. Fryman, in turn, begins selling "deep-fried pizza" and "pizza bits" at Beach Citywalk Fries, sparking a "restaurant war" due to these acts breaking the treaty the two businessmen made years prior to the events of the show, an agreement never to steal one another's business. Steven enlists the help of the two restaurant owners' respective children to end the war, but to no avail; all their plans fail and the two men refuse to end their argument, even causing Ronaldo to lose his girlfriend. Eventually, Steven and the Crystal Gems start a restaurant selling ketchup-filled fries and cream cheese-filled pizza bagels, which Pizza and Fryman view as a greater threat to their businesses than each other. The two beg Steven to close his business lest it lose them their jobs, and Steven agrees on one condition: they end the restaurant war. They agree and resolve to only do what they do best.


Steven Universe

Steven is a frequent customer at the Beach Citywalk Fries. His goofy nature seems to annoy the serious Mr. Fryman, but he is not one to turn away a customer. He even lets Steven order items not on the menu (such as Steven's favorite "fry bits") noting that it is just easier, and quicker, to give him what he wants rather than argue about it.


Mr. Fryman's relationship with Amethyst is very similar to that of Steven. This is due to Amethyst, like Steven, being a frequent customer at the fry shop – as she is the only other Crystal Gem to share Steven's fondness of food.


Mr. Fryman's relationship with his younger son is much better than that with his brother, Ronaldo. Unlike Ronaldo, Peedee takes his duties at the fry shop very seriously and seems to show great enthusiasm. Despite this, however, Peedee seems to harbor some resentment towards working there as shown in "Frybo". He seems reluctant to share these feelings with his father.

This does not stop Mr. Fryman from being incredibly proud of Peedee, as in "Political Power" he commented on how Peedee would do just fine in the dire situation they found themselves in, but he was not so sure about Ronaldo.


Mr. Fryman's relationship with his older son is somewhat strained; Ronaldo doesn't care to work at the fry shop and would much rather be lost in his own weird world. He often shirks his duties (letting his younger brother do twice the work) which seems to, at best, annoy his father – and at worst disappoint him.

Greg Universe

Much like Sadie's mom, Barbara, Mr. Fryman knows Greg well enough to be on a first-name-basis with him, as shown in "The Return" where he asked if Greg and Steven were okay after Steven caused the van to run off the road.

Kofi Pizza

As fellow vendors of fast food, Kofi and Mr. Fryman have shared a rivalry, wary of the other infringing on his business. They have engaged in at least two "restaurant wars" in which each businessman attempts to outsell the other. Despite the enmity between them, Kofi and Mr. Fryman have shown they are willing to set aside their rivalry and work together under certain circumstances, such as when they cooperated to bring down The Everything Buffet. As of "Restaurant Wars", Kofi and Mr. Fryman appear to be on good terms, having agreed to not infringe on each other's business.

Episode Appearances


  • In the episode "Frybo", it is shown that Mr. Fryman wears a visor cap, revealing that the "fries" on his head is actually his hair. In "Restaurant Wars", Fryman seems unaware of his hair's resemblance to french-fries.
    • In the same episode, Mr. Fryman also appears to have no ears until the ending "viking funeral"-scene where they suddenly become visible. In all future appearances he has ears.
  • It is suggested in "Rocknaldo" that Mr. Fryman is a single parent.
