The supermarkets selling Nathan’s here stopped carrying the natural casing ones some time ago. The skinless Nathan’s franks sell for $4.99 for a package of 8. I don’t buy them. Instead, I buy Boar’s Head natural casings at $6.99 for seven dogs.

I tried to buy Nathans from the factory and before shipping they wanted more per dog than my local grocery store wanted for them. I laughed at them on the phone and said that’s crazy. I’ll buy them at Shop N Save and of course they said oh you can’t do that. But I do every week just like clock work.
IANAP (I am not a Professional) but I just finished having two natural casing Nathan’s franks for lunch that I grilled in an ordinary consumer electric fry pan. They were superb, as usual. You may want to look at this page on the Nathan’s web site about their Branded Product Program:
I have not heard of Nathan’s selling food service packs of their franks unless they have some sort of sales agreement in place. But, they have some sort of distribution network in place to sell foodservice products nationally.
I bought my natural casing franks on special at a supermarket- two packs for $4.99. These retail packs have six franks in each package.
Can’t say for Nathan’s, but I had a couple Boar’s Head natural casings dogs the other day and would definately say they are superior to any brand of skinless dogs I’ve ever had. That snap makes a huge difference.
I have posted several times on here. I serve a skinless Nathan’s dogs at a Home Depot here in Houston. Have recently had folks wanting them grilled instead of steamed. I tried to grill the skinless ones but they dont have the snap of course without the casing.
I tried to get to get the natural Nathan’s from my wholesaler/broker but they have another brand.
Is this worth trying to order?
