The 92-year-old franchise only has a Tempe restaurant outside its Buffalo, New York, base, where it has nine locations.
It announced a Chandler location in March 2017 in the Crossroads Towne Center, but Ted’s officials said they have been frustrated by center officials in efforts to begin construction there. As a result, they signed a lease in October for a lot on Gilbert Road south of Germann Road in Gilbert and hope to begin construction on the restaurant in February.
Ted’s serves a “Buffalo-style” hot dog, as well as other offerings such as bratwurst, Polish sausage or a “White Hot” from Sahlen’s, a 150-year-old meat packing company in Buffalo. The order is charbroiled on a grill in front of the customer with the food dressed to his or her order.
No opening date has been announced. www.tedshotdogs.com
