Best Wiener Empire

“Big Daddy” Sean Porter spent years touring as a road manager with national acts like Cage the Elephant and Elle King. If he learned anything in that gig, it was the value of finding some good late-night eats. So when it was time to come off the road, he decided to open a gourmet hot dog cart to serve the needs of the munchie zombies out after midnight. Partnering with high school friend Andrew St. Marie, Porter has now expanded Daddy’s Dogs to a fleet of three carts serving high-traffic areas of downtown and Midtown as well as brick-and-mortar shops in Printers Alley and The Nations.
