Frank ‘n’ Steins LLC
A hot dog venture dubbed Frank ‘n’ Steins launched March 11 in downtown Springfield’s Brewery District Flats. The 1,824-square-foot restaurant at 535 W. Walnut St., Ste. 101, is part of a 29,000-square-foot development that includes loft apartments, retail and office space. Frank ‘n’ Steins owner John Chace said the name and concept came from his wife Becca’s drawing of a hot dog with bolts she called Frankie. Chace, the former owner of J.C. O’Malley’s Irish Pub, developed the menu of gourmet hot dogs and brats. Movies served as inspiration, with such items as Gulp Fiction, The Big Grubowski and Brattyshack sold for $6-$10. The eatery, which employs five, is on a lease with 5999 LLC for undisclosed terms. Startup costs were around $150,000, Chace said. He said the opening was delayed four months in order to get inspections completed by the city.
