TigerMeat Hot Dog Food TruckFranklin based food truck TigerMeat Hot Dogs announced on Facebook Wednesday that they have officially closed their window.

Founded in 2011 by Franklin resident Jack Abrams while he was in the 7th grade, TigerMeat earned a reputation as one of the best hot dogs in all of Nashville. Abrams’ goal was to bring a Chicago style hot dog down South. His passion won him many accolades including the 2014 “Best Between Bread” in the Nashville Street Food Awards. You could often find TigerMeat parked at Paddle Dog Adventures in the Westhaven community. Now that Abrams is in college, running the food truck is becoming difficult.

“We have made a difficult decision and one we wish we never had to make. As many inquiries about events have come in, we must announce that after a tremendous 7-years in operation, TigerMeat will not be opening this season. There is always a chance that we will open again in the future, but it is time to start a new chapter in my life. The dedication needed to keep TigerMeat in business has been dwindling each year, especially being away at UT-Knoxville. I have grown up with all of you and owe my success to everyone that has supported me.”

Abrams goes on to thank his family, “Additionally, I could not have done this without the love and support of my family. Thank you to Olivia, Fitz, Faith, Mom, and Dad. TigerMeat has been an incredible part my life and I am grateful to everyone that stopped by over the years. It was a great run.-Jack Abrams”
