It’s been a busy decade for The Original Hot Dog Factory, the casual eatery Dennis McKinley opened back in 2010 and which rebranded in 2015. The now franchised company that’s become popular from mentions on The Real Housewives of Atlanta has 23 locations open in multiple states, with more coming to Atlanta, Athens, Pittsburgh, and now Phoenix.
According to a press release, The Original Hot Dog Factory has at least one location headed to The Valley, although neither an address nor an opening date has been announced. Lamont Johnson, a PR representative for The Art Department, LLC identified one of the Phoenix-area franchisees as Dr. Latanya Jones. What Now Phoenix reached out to Dr. Jones for comment but had not heard back at the time of publication.
The Original Hot Dog Factory specializes in—you guessed it—hot dogs, but these aren’t your typical concession stand dogs.
The 100% angus beef hot dogs come in a variety of flavors from the All American to the Italian Dog. You can find a BLT Dog—oh yeah, that’s bacon-wrapped—a Jamaican Jerk Chicken Dog, and a Carolina Slaw Dog, to name a few, and we’re just scratching the surface.
“At the Original Hot Dog Factory, we offer a wide variety of mouthwatering hot dogs that will make you ask for more,” McKinley said in the press release. “We are looking forward to sharing this deliciousness all over the country.”
