"fredsfranks.com striving to provide one of the best hot dogs you
have ever eaten."
Now I realize if one considers the vast diversity of the hot dog, that this statement -
actually our mission statement - is one of lofty aspiration. It is with a great deal of respect and trepidation that I embark
upon this adventure.
THE DOG ITSELF After 48 years of hot dog research, there is one hot dog that I believe
stands alone for its quality and taste. Made locally by the Pearl Meat Packing Company, located in Roxbury Massachusetts,
this 1/4lb, all-beef, natural-casing frank, stands alone as one of the best hot dogs I have ever tasted.
tasted a Pearl over 35 years ago when I worked at a local country club as a busboy. One of the cooks took the time, effort,
and attention-to-detail, to cook one for me. He even put nice "slits" up one side and down the other that opened
up, exposing the succulent hot dog flesh as he grilled it to perfection. The way it went "snap" when bitten was
love at first bite, and it was then and there that my search for the perfect dog began. It was actually then and there at
the tender age of 14 years old, where unknowingly, that cook set the standard by which all dogs were to be measured.
WHY A HOTDOG BUSINESS? I worked in the high-tech electronics field for over 25 years. The last company was a small,
privately-owned firm, for which I worked for 17 years. Through the downturn of the economy and a series of events, that company
was bought by a very large, publicly-held company. The new large corporation and I did not see "eye to eye" on a
number of issues, and after a short while we parted ways.
I have always enjoyed cooking for people, so I decided
this would be a fun, economic, and easy way to do just that.
OUR MISSION: It is my intention to provide attention
to detail to each and every item I sell. I will be constantly striving to find the best and freshest ingredients possible,
in order to accomplish our mission. Let us set the standard by which every hot dog you eat will be measured, from here on
YOU FEED US, WE'LL FEED YOU If you have an idea, please email me. Your comments and suggestions
will help me to provide you, my valued customer, with a product that will be second to none.
For example: What
are your thoughts on a 1/2lb all beef frank? We could call it the monster dog. I can get them, but will you eat them? The
kiddie dog perhaps? I can get those too, but will you eat them?
In 2004 we offered both a 1/8lb and a 1/4lb, natural-casing
all-beef Pearl frank, Linguicia, great condiments, chips, and drinks. That's it. We kept it simple with a few excellent things.
That is my battle cry.Above all we want to offer the best and most properly prepared big frank you ever ate. After you eat
your first Fred's Frank, we want you to return again and again. If anything at any time keeps you from doing that, please
email us and tell us why.

Have you ever had a sandwich made by your
wife's brother, mother-in-law, or anybody else who might be good in the kitchen? How many times have I given someone else
poetic license to build me a sandwich "their" way, and enjoyed a culinary experience I would have never thought
of? Let us make some suggestions and we will put together a Hot Dog for you "our" way. Allow us poetic license,
or if you dare not, build your own.
SOME OF OUR POETRY - Our Signature Sandwich "The Shnurble" -
Hellmann’s mayonnaise, sweet cabbage, topped with Sirachaba Sauce, sweet and a tad spicy. And feel free to add another
condiment you desire! Enjoy! Life IS good!
Be creative, use the ingredients we have
to come up with a dog like no other, but let's not be foolhardy. We don't want so many ingredients that it becomes too complicated.
I have put together a list of the best ingredients I can think of. If you have ideas, please let me know, and they will be
considered. Please do not be dismayed if your idea is not incorporated. We will build Fred's Franks together one excellent
ingredient at a time, in an effort to keep it simple, yet complicated enough to keep it interesting and creative.
Don't be a stranger. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org, fill
your thoughts in the box, hit send, and "Bob's your uncle"!
