EAT THE DINERWay

In 1926, there was some real excitement in downtown Kenosha when six horses pulled Franks’ Diner to the spot where it stands today. The structure was built by the Jerry O’Mahony company in New Jersey, and shipped to Kenosha on a railroad flatcar. Anthony Franks, who first learned of the unique restaurant opportunity through a magazine article, paid $7,500 plus $315 in shipping charges to launch his business.
