After 70 years – Louie’s Hot Dogs will be closing its doors!

The owners posted this heartfelt message on Facebook:

 

“It is with a heavy heart yet an immense sense of joy and accomplishment that I am announcing my ( and my sister Debbie’s ) retirement from our family business .
Both of us working in our family business for over
50 years apiece … we felt it was a good time to say goodbye and retire .
I reopened for our 70th year earlier this spring and had fully intended on making it through another wonderful season .
The difficulty in staffing the store this spring is proving to be too much for Debbie and I .
And after working an incredibly busy lunch hour with just the 2 of us behind the counter ( because our other staff members just decided not to show up ).. it was clear to both of us completing this season was going to be a monumental task .
A task at our age we felt would be too difficult for us .
I am retiring the Louie’s Footlong brand name and will look for a tenant to lease the location to immediately.
Again , myself , my sister Debbie , and our entire family would like to thank each and every one of our enormous customer base … we will miss you SO MUCH !!! Hopefully you’ll miss us , our food , and our customer service as well .
It has been our pleasure serving you for the past
7 decades .
I’m looking forward to the next chapter in our lives … we plan on traveling , sleeping in , staying up late and watching our favorite movies .. and walking the beaches of Florida and the world .
Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts !!
Please don’t be sad it’s over .. just be glad that it happened !!
❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️”
