is making quite an impressive name for himself as the sole owner of four, The Original Hot Dog Factory restaurants in Philadelphia and as co-owner of another one in Brooklyn, all opening within months of each other and thriving despite the nation’s turbulent financial climate.
This, without having any prior restaurant experience and Anderson has NO plans to slow down anytime soon. He is on track to his newest endeavor, Steakhouse 1635 will open this fall. This will be the blueprint for a new franchise of steakhouses to be opened in major cities across the United States and abroad.
Born and raised in the tough inner city of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Anderson credits his mother, a single parent of 5 with his unyielding strength, discipline, humility, passion and persistent need to be of service to those in need. Anderson’s foray into being a business owner….the very first in his family, started with the launch of his very own screen printing company Union Printing in 2009. The idea to start this company culminated while working as an assistant to a top record company executive at Mega Brand in New York City.
Anderson realized a need to provide quality merchandise for an affordable price after seeing an invoice at work and convinced his bosses that he could not only meet the demand for the record label’s printing needs but most importantly for a far better price. As the saying goes, the rest is history. Anderson not only surpassed expectations at major record label in NewYork city but Union Printing established itself as a leader in the industry and is still hugely successful more than a decade later.
