Wieners? Franks? Call them what you will, Franktuary’s focus on grass-fed beef has led to 10+ years of delicious Pittsburgh-made hot dogs.
Let’s take it back to the start.
Our next “Behind the Window” food truck documentary steps into one of Pittsburgh’s first food trucks.
Franktuary started in a church basement downtown and now has a storefront in Lawrenceville and a location inside Pittsburgh International Airport.
In case you haven’t heard, we’re in the airport now! Concourse B, Gate 32. Just a two minute walk from the center core. Vegan and grass-fed beef options available!
In 2015, Pittsburgh’s conflicting food truck laws made it, well, complicated for businesses like Franktuary to operate a food truck. The owners of Franktuary were very involved in making Pittsburgh a food truck-friendly place.
Our baffling food truck laws: "…we are in this strange food truck purgatory."
In addition to being one of the first food trucks in Pittsburgh, Franktuary was also one of the first establishments to offer vegan and gluten-free menu options.
