The story of The Good Frank begins back in 2005 when two love birds opened a hot dog stand in Nashville, TN. They wanted to gain business experience, sell "gourmet" hot dogs and eventually, get married.
People loved them and they loved their simple, traditional approach to hot dogs. As they grew, they discovered a food system full of strange, modern practices that virtually guaranteed lower quality food full of artificial ingredients and industrialized processes.
They discovered that 70% of beef produced in America contained Ammonium Hydroxide - which is Ammonia and water. The idea of using a harsh chemical like Ammonia in food horrified the Jacksons.
Tyrone and Marcella decided to learn how food needed to be produced to be life supporting. They learned to farm, make sausage using old world techniques and recipes and eventually founded The Good Frank.
A lot has changed since that first hot dog stand in Nashville, but two things remain constant: Love and Wholesome Goodness. Love for each other and for the well-being of families is and always has been Tyrone and Marcella's focus.
That is as true today and it was then. We hope that comes through in our products. We also hope that our products remind you of simpler, more joyous times with family, friends and amazing food.
