Construction Update

It has been an exciting couple of months watching 707 Kenmore Avenue transform from an old auto shop to the makings of a brand-new restaurant. We appreciate all of you sharing in our excitement and keeping tabs on the progress of the building as we continue to move towards an opening date – we are getting closer every day! I promise.

Meet Frank

These days, it is pretty difficult to get Frank to sit down for a few minutes – for anything. Between building a restaurant, planning the food truck schedule and overseeing operations downtown at the Expo Market location, he is a busy man. Fortunately, he has a solid team behind him that helps get things done on the daily. This past week, we sat him down to reflect on the past couple years. What is your coffee order? Black coffee. A lot of black coffee. How did you end up in the hot dog business? After graduating from SUNY Geneseo, I spent some time in the Hamptons. It was far from glamorous, but it was fun. I worked a bunch of different jobs, just hustling really – running a restaurant, trying to sell real estate, working construction, driving rich people around. After a while, it was time to come back home to
