ABOUT THIS BUSINESS
ARM Procurements Pty Ltd is the Master Franchise holder for Nathan’s Famous in Australia and we have the complete backing of the US based publicly listed parent company.
Nathan’s Famous have created a unique product and brand that cannot be matched with other hotdog competitors in the market.
Our hotdogs are 100% Australian beef made to the original Nathan’s Famous secret recipe and is grilled, not boiled as most hotdogs are. Our crinkle-cut fries are exclusive to Nathan’s Famous and our old fashioned lemonade is like no other. Our trailers are a perfect fit in the national food truck market as they are a fresh look that are bringing the true taste of New York to the people of Australia.
The design of our trailers is that of a carnival or festival theme which we have based around our history originating in Coney Island – New York. We initially launched with food trailers as we wanted everyone to be able to enjoy the Nathan’s Famous experience from the trailers exactly the same way you can experience Nathan’s Famous in New York with trailers in places like Central Park and Brooklyn.
Our in-line and complete full-menu stores not only offer all of our products for sale, but in most cases provide an in-store casual dining experience with table service available. The fit-out is inviting, authentic and modern, painting the picture of Nathan’s Famous history and incorporating a traditional Coney Island feel.
Nathan’s Famous was founded by a Polish immigrant, Nathan Handwerker, and his is truly an authentic “only in America story.” He started his business in 1916 with a small hot dog stand in Coney Island, New York. He sold hot dogs that were manufactured based on a recipe developed by his wife Ida’s grandmother.
Over the 100 years that have passed since opening day, Nathan’s has gained worldwide recognition for the unequalled quality and taste of its product. Today, Nathan’s has gained a reputation for being among the highest quality hotdogs in the world.
- Purpose built.
- Fully registered on road.
