DBP: What is the most interesting or surprising thing you have learned during your time here?
DS: Learning about the history of Downtown Brooklyn from the customers who have witnessed it. Customers always come and tell us about when they were young and how their parents bought them food from here and how they respect our efforts in maintaining the original store setup. People in their late 60’s come by remembering the same feeling they had when eating our food at the age of six.
DBP: What is the most popular menu item?
DS: Spoiler Alert: Our Famous Hot Dogs and Hot Sausages! Have it your way. We also have a vast menu of different food, such as beef patties, burgers and salads.
DBP: Why do you think your customers keep coming back to you?
DS: I believe it’s the experience. Good food is everywhere in NYC, but support and courtesy isn’t and we show our customers love, respect and genuine care that keep them coming back. Most restaurants look at you as a number on a receipt and try to rush you in and out. We ensure what you want is what you get and you leave happy. They say you only get one chance to make a good impression, so make it good!
DBP: What is your next goal for the business?
DS: Branching out Fulton Hot Dog King to new locations in NYC – because there are people who haven’t tried one of the best hot dogs yet!
