Tony Fragogiannis was not satisfied with the hot dogs sold in his local markets. To this Brooklyn, NY native, hot dogs are a food to be savored, something the chemically-laden, over-processed packages found in supermarkets left to be desired. Hot dogs deserve to be loved.
So when he decided to go back to the drawing board and create his own, ‘Classic’ was the first thing he wrote. Tony called a long-time friend and brand builder, Justin Neiser to get the ball rolling. They set out to reinvent a healthier version of the well-known street food by avoiding nitrates and fillers and using quality, antibiotic-free meats, and natural casings. The result was a hot dog they could feel good about eating. Love attained, mission accomplished. The company developed five varieties of hot dogs all designed to maintain the artisan quality of the dogs of yesteryear, but with a healthier and more flavorful twist. The Brooklyn Hot Dog Company began selling hot dogs in the summer of 2012 and has continued to gain fans ever since. Scroll to shop Brooklyn Hot Dog Company’s Best Sellers:
