A Treasured Tradition

Positioned as a treasured tradition, Nathan's is one of those rare brands able to claim immeasurable brand equity. The name has always been synonymous with the highest quality, beef hot dogs and unique, golden crinkle-cut French fries.

While rich in history and tradition, Nathan's Famous is a company forever looking forward. From a single restaurant in Coney Island, Brooklyn in 1916, Nathan's has grown to become an international corporation serving all facets of the food service industry. Today, Nathan's reaches millions of customers through traditional and captive market restaurant operations, a branded product program introduced throughout the food service industry and packaged products sold in supermarkets.

Nathan’s products are currently distributed in 50 states, the District of Columbia and six foreign countries through its restaurant system, Branded Product Program and retail licensing activities.  The Nathan’s restaurant system currently consists of 268 units, comprised of 263 franchised or licensed units and five company-owned units (including one seasonal unit).

Nathan’s hot dogs are marketed and sold in over 40,000 locations worldwide including over 30,000 retail locations and over 10,000 food service outlets.

Last year Nathan’s sold over 425 million of its World Famous Beef Hot Dogs.
