Franktuary Food Truck

Video: riding along with Franktuary Food Truck

Wieners? Franks? Call them what you will, Franktuary's focus on grass-fed beef has led to 10+ years of delicious Pittsburgh-made hot dogs.

Let’s take it back to the start.

Our next “Behind the Window” food truck documentary steps into one of Pittsburgh’s first food trucks.

Franktuary started in a church basement downtown and now has a storefront in Lawrenceville and a location inside Pittsburgh International Airport.

In 2015, Pittsburgh’s conflicting food truck laws made it, well, complicated for businesses like Franktuary to operate a food truck. The owners of Franktuary were very involved in making Pittsburgh a food truck-friendly place.

In addition to being one of the first food trucks in Pittsburgh, Franktuary was also one of the first establishments to offer vegan and gluten-free menu options.
