Media Coverage: Tax Attorney Leaves Law to Sell Hotdogs
David Flamholz earned a degree from one of the nation's top law schools and had a job with one of New York's top law firms.
So why is he selling hot dogs for a living?
Seems David didn't like practicing law and craved a more entrepreneurial path. So he teamed up with his cousin to take over the family business - Abeles & Heymann Kosher Provisions - which had been selling kosher hot dogs and other deli meats since 1954, but had fallen on hard times.
Once at the company, David and his cousin modernized production and distribution, and added new products. Annual sales have grown from $500,000 to over $3 million.
