Johnna McKee and Christi Erpillo on A&E's Deep Fried Dynasty

Johnna McKee and Christi Erpillo

This is the first year that Christi and Johnna are running their stands without their beloved mother and namesake “Fernie” at the State Fair of Texas. Fernie’s Funnel Cakes was the first stand to bring funnel cakes to the fair. They have expanded their footprint to five total booths and their menu includes the 2021 Big Tex Choice Award Finalist Fernie’s Toffee Coffee Crunch Cake as well as their Deep Fried Grilled Cheese, and Burnt End Burritos.
