Nathan’s Famous Franchise Opportunities


Nathan's Famous restaurant offers customers proprietary hot dogs (made with a proprietary spice formula) as well as crinkle-cut french fries, hamburgers, assorted sandwiches, platters, and other fast-service menu items. A Restaurant is typically located in one of the following types of settings: a free-standing building, a food court in a shopping mall, an in-line shopping center, or an in-line urban unit. Polish immigrant Nathan Handwerker took his wife Ida's recipe for hot dogs and started selling them from a stand in Coney Island in 1916. Nathan's Famous became a public company in 1970, and began franchising in 1988. As of 2015, the company operated 234 franchises in the United States and 63 ones outside the country.
