About the Author:

Richard is an architect by degree (Lawrence Technological University, Southfield, Michigan) who began his career in real estate development and architectural planning. In September of 2010 he created Mobile Cuisine Magazine to fill an information void he found when he began researching how to start a mobile hotdog cart in Chicago. Richard found that there was no central repository of mobile street food information anywhere on the internet, and with that, the idea for MCM was born.

    Frank’s Gourmet Hotdogs are truly at another level. Just look at their menu for their specialty dogs,

    “Spotted Trotter pork belly frank topped with panko goat cheese, pickled red onions, balsamic & arugula”
    “Spotted Trotter pork belly frank topped with bacon, wasabi mayo, ponzu slaw & black sesame seeds”

    This isn’t your typical “let’s put a piece of bacon and bbq sauce and call that a specialty dog” type food truck.
