The History Of The Coney Island Hot Dog

Coney Island is famous for its hot dogs and summertime carnivals. In the late 19th century, this area was a popular resort spot and amusement park. One of the most famous attractions at Coney Island was Nathan Handwerker’s dog-shaped hot dog stand.

The Nathan Handwerker Company started out selling ice cream in the early 1900s and eventually expanded into other food items. In 1916, they began selling Nathan’s hot dogs.

These sausages were made from beef, pork, or veal. They were served in a bread roll with mustard and onions on a stick. In 1925, Nathan Handwerker sold his company to Oscar Mayer, which continued to make Nathan’s brand of sausages.
