...and The Hot Dog Man is traveling New England and stopping at a different hot dog joint each day. The question remains, did he pick July because it means 31 hot dogs (instead of getting gypped with a tiny month like February) or is it really because July is National Hot Dog Month?
It doesn't matter because he is on the move and day 12 (July 12th) he stopped at Yank's Franks.
Last year The Hot Dog Man chowed down on a Yank's Frank. This year, at the suggestion of Hot Diggity, he tried the Wells Beach Dog. He has a new favorite. I think it was the Applewood-Smoked Bacon that got him.
Frankly, It Was Great To See The Hot Dog Man (and Drew, the videographer)!
We have never been to Pink's Hot Dogs, but it is another item that needs to be checked off my "bucket list."
A friend sent Yank's Franks this photo and offered to send more. I declined and instead suggected sending a chili dog. I expect to receive it early next week.
Pink's is in Hollywood and has been for over 70 years. Many of you may have heard of them as they recently became the subject of an often run commercial about Bank of America. Good going B of A, there is nothing better than hot dogs to make us forget that you were a huge part of bringing the world economy to its knees.
Pink's has the reputation of being the hot dog stand to the stars. That's an awesome distinction, but Yank's Franks is hard at work to replace them as the hot dog stand to the stars.
Frankly, All Yank's Franks Customers Are Stars!
So there you go Pink's. Maybe we'll see you next winter.
This blog is meant to chronicle the step-by-step process of taking an entrepreneurial effort from being just a dream to a reality. I'll share our efforts toward selecting a name, a menu, a logo, a location, as well as everything before, after, and in between.
I hope you'll enjoy following the progress of Yank's Franks
