Dennis McKinley, owner of The Original Hot Dog Factory and CRU Hookah Lounge

These are truly unprecedented times. Dine-in business is done, so business is, of course, overall down. However, morale is not as we are seeing an unbelievable surge in carryout and delivery service business, which we expect to continue

There’s no better time to build a brand than it is now. Post COVID-19, I think the restaurant industry will be in a much better position, as it relates to being clean, taking safety precautions as it relates to employees’ health and setting new standards for a healthy work/customer relationship.

Currently, The Original Hot Dog Factory offers free food to police officers, firefighters and medical workers.
