The history of Nathan’s Famous stretches all the way back to 1916 when Polish immigrant Nathan Handwerker started his own hot dog business in Coney Island with a small hot dog cart. Nathan’s recipe came from a secret mix of spices concocted by his wife, Ida, and soon regular people and famous people were flocking to Nathan’s stand to enjoy his high quality and tasty hot dogs.
To this day, Nathan’s Famous is a worldwide-recognized brand that is known for their top-notch products that can be found in supermarkets in all 50 states. Those seeking to try a Nathan’s Famous hot dog can do so at one of the 40,000+ Nathan’s Famous restaurants and retail outlets around the globe, and those who are lucky can even stop by the original location in Coney Island, New York.
