"Felony Franks" the hotdog stand made famous by hiring only felons...Set to close due to slow business

Where will all our corrupt convicted elected officials turn to for employment if FELONY FRANKS closes???

Its name gave it notoriety around the world, but Felony Franks on Chicago's West Side may have to shut down. Jim Andrews, the owner of the criminally-themed hotdog stand at 229 S. Western, tells the Sun-Times that business is declining and he's having problems with a nearby liquor store. Andrews took his theme seriously. Since 2009, he's hired more than a dozen ex-cons to help them get a second start in life, beginning at Felony Franks. Manager Brian Smiley is one of them. Smiley says he doesn't know what he'll do if the restaurant closes its doors, but he's grateful for the opportunity to work there.

Slow business? What not enough felons in IL?

I can only think of a few thousand black men and even some politicians who fit that requirement.

He needs to move it into the City Hall Council Chambers!

That place is full of felons and the chambers are seldom used for any meaningful purpose!

Too bad he couldn't for Blago to come out of jail to work there. The only problem Blago would still be running for office.

Dont worry fuckers like this are prime media meat. Tom Dart will save the day.. I guarantee that he will intervene...Just like the fucker who punched the CPD Sgt. and got off. The guy said he was happy in the jail because Tom Dart allowd hi to do sit ins to talk to fellow inmates about the occupy movement. Sheriff Dart also called on the protesters the same anti police assholes to sighn apetition for evictions.. keep that in mind wi
hen election time comes along.
