A Little About Us
When we first moved to Georgia from Detroit in 2013, we learned our way around the area by sampling the cuisine. We feasted on burritos in Kirkwood, banh mi sandwiches on Buford Highway, sushi rolls in Smyrna, risotto in Roswell and fried chicken in Jackson. But it was when we tried the hotdogs and burgers at CJ’s Hotdogs on Eagle’s Landing in Stockbridge, that we knew we were really home.
In January 2016, we bought the business from the previous owners and almost exactly 2 years later in January 2018, re-christened the place The Hotdog Co. We sought to keep all of CJ’s best dishes and specialties while adding our own unique twists and personal touches.
Kurt grew up in Louisville, Kentucky where he owned a popular restaurant. Teri grew up in Detroit, and is a pretty darn good cook herself and travels quite a bit for work. Having both worked in customer service and hospitality, we vowed to make The Hotdog Co. known just as much for the warm and welcoming vibe you’ll feel when you walk through the door as our mouth-watering food. The food comes fast, but it’s not fast food. It’s made with care and always served with a friendly smile.
While we're not a fancy "gourmet" restaurant, we pride ourselves on using the freshest ingredients and making as many items as we can, in-house. So please stop in for a handmade burger, fresh-cut fries, home-made chili, slaw and sauces, or one of our delicious hot dogs and say hello. We’re all friends here.
