Famous Nathan

Flatiron Books

Nathan Handwerker (the author’s grandfather) was a poor Jewish kid who fled Poland one step ahead of World War I. Landing in New York, he got his first job his second day in America. He went on to found Nathan’s Famous, the Coney Island hot dog empire that wrote the playbook for every food franchise that followed. This fast-read bio is part family history, part nostalgia tour of New York’s Golden Days. You’ll learn Nathan’s business secrets (undercutting competitors’ prices, micromanagement). While you won’t learn his frankfurter recipe, you will learn how he achieved that signature “snap” in every bite.
