Hot Dog! An Interesting Possiblity for the Home of Yank's Franks

Today, we were out checking out different properties for Yank's Franks. The really good news is, I think we found a great site. It is too early to let the "cat out of the bag" (in other words, to make the address public), but if things come together you will be the first to know.

I'm anxious to be able to begin showing photos (here on the blog) of the property and the changes we will be making to transform it from an acceptable commercial site to the home of the best hot dog on the planet.

I'm sure every hot dog vendor has that as a goal. Wait...I take that back, we've eaten at several hot dog joints lately that certainly could not have that in their Mission Statement.

Anyway, we've already done some research on the property. We've visited city hall and we plan more trips soon. I've met with a sign maker. I have the very best person conceivable working on our logo. We are working on our menu and we are testing different foods.

Everything is moving along well. Unfortunately, I believe progress will slow considerably once we begin the process of obtaining the necessary approvals and permits (city and state). I learned a saying when I was very young, "you can't fight city hall." I am about to get close up and personal with the meaning of that line.

Hopefully, more information to come soon.

Don't forget to vote and remember you can chose multiple options in this week's poll.


  1. You don't want to let the cat out of the bag near the dogs. ;)

  2. You can fight City Hall, the problem is they always seem to win. I was looking for a joke to tie-in "hot dogs" with "pork barrel spending", alas, I just can't seem to get there.
