“We wanted to show our appreciation to everyone on the front line, risking their lives to keep our city and the world safe,” Owner Dennis McKinley said in a prepared statement.

“This includes medical workers, police officers, and firefighters.”

The Original Hot Dog Factory originally opened in 2010 but was rebranded and revamped in 2015.

Its menu includes specialty hot dogs, hamburgers, chicken sandwiches, salads, french fries, onion rings, and milkshakes.

“We are doing our part to help Atlanta’s service workers in this fight against COVID-19, by providing our free mouthwatering hot dogs that will make you ask for more,” McKinley said.

“All hot dogs are steamed, grilled, or fried with globally inspired toppings.”

Atlantans are getting creative with supporting pandemic frontline workers and other citizens in need.

Red Pepper Taqueria is feeding the homeless out of its kitchen and Staplehouse is serving more than 50 meals daily to displaced food service workers.

Residents of Midtown every night at 8 p.m. take to their balconies in gregarious cheer. Watch the video here.
