The Best Hot Dog!

So far, Yank's Franks is not much more than an idea. But, it's a great idea.

While Maine has Hot Dog places, they typically serve steamed hot dogs often on steamed buns. Yuk!

Yank's Franks will be a griddled hot dog on a buttered and griddled bun then topped off with a selection of delicious toppings.

Before I forget, please make suggestions by commenting on this post and any others.

The name, Yank's Franks, is just a "working" name. Again, suggestions will be appreciated.

I've already made an offer on a property in Wells, Maine. Unfortunately, that offer was rejected and I was not willing to over pay. Now, I've found a new spot and, once again, I expect to make an offer. I'll let you know how things proceed.

In meeting with the Office of Planning & Development in the town I am now considering, I learned that if I start the process toward approval now, the earliest I would be approved for construction is likely to be mid-July. Sorry, no hot dogs this summer.

You see, the banks are not the only impediment to small business and job creation. As they say, you can't fight City Hall.

That's it for now. Please make suggestions, ask questions or anything else. I would like to hear from you.


  1. Let me know if you need a taste tester for the offerings on your menu. I consider myself an 'expert' on matters of anything 'griddled' (or as we say in the midwest - fried) YUMMM. Also want to know how you got such a cool follower as Hot Diggity?

  2. It's a great idea George! Griddled dogs are the only way to go. That New England method of boiling the flavor out of everything has to go! LOL! Are you going to have a down-Mainer version of the Coney Island dog? Whatever you do, I know it will be a winner.

  3. Yank's Franks...sounds like a weiner!
