Five

It is hard to believe that this week marks the 5th Anniversary of our company! In honor, we held a little reunion for everyone that has worked on #teamfrank over the years. True to form, we split into teams and battled in some intense games of Lasertron and Cybersport. This team is and has always been competitive – and they all like to win. Five years ago, Frank and I set out to make hot dogs better by doing all the hard stuff – sourcing the best meat possible, making our own hot dogs, finding community and partnerships with farmers & companies that could help us make that happen. And for the first couple years, it was just us. Few people saw the vision back then. But, a small group of individuals did. And this week we celebrated them and gave them an opportunity to preview the construction, check out design

Under Construction

Frank and I hope the new year is off to a great start! We wanted to take a moment to catch you up on one of our biggest projects ever – building a restaurant! For those of you who may not already know, we purchased a former auto repair shop at 707 Kenmore Avenue in the Town of Tonawanda. A lot of activity has been happening there lately! Fingers crossed it continues at this pace. A neighborhood hot dog joint is what Frank always wanted – and it has been fun to watch how excited he’s been (for the most part) about the entire process.

In light of everything, we

Fire It Up! Frank is Opening Kenmore Avenue Restaurant

Get ready, Tonawanda, Kenmore & you too, North Buffalo – Frank is coming to your neighborhood! We are excited to announce that we will be opening a hot dog and burger joint at 707 Kenmore Avenue, at the corner of Starin Avenue – in the Town of Tonawanda. We couldn’t be more excited about this location for our first stand-alone restaurant. It is in our backyard, minutes away from where we grew up and just steps away from St. Joe’s. It borders many of the communities that have been good to us since day one. Even better, there will be plenty of parking (20 spots) and it is a few blocks from the bike trails. We’ve had to keep these plans under wraps for well over a year. It’s amazing to finally be able to share this news with all of you! It seems like yesterday Paul and I were driving (sometimes
