Nathan's Famous Hot Dogs has boarded up its shop in the Staten Island Mall food court this week.
But not to worry! This Coney Island-born, neighborhood favorite hot dog joint has other locations within the K-Mart store of Hylan Plaza in New Dorp and a freestanding store on Forest Ave in Mariner's Harbor. Nathan's is also slated to be one of the restaurants to open in the upcoming Empire Outlets center in St. George.
Sometimes when we see a chain restaurant close, we fear the company may be in financial trouble. Such is not the case with Nathan's, which was ranked #22 in the Best Small Companies of 2014, according to Forbes.
