Chronis in ELA

Neta | Sep 13, 2010 07:38 PM

There has been some chat in the past about Chronis and its being taken over by someone new and their famous chili dog is not the same.
I picked up a newsletter from Greg Chronis, the owner and he dispels these rumors. He is now the sole owner after having bought out his uncle and co-owner George. Greg has been partner in ownership for over 16 years. He
guarantees in this newsletter that nothing has changed and in my opinion, it hasn't. He uses the same vedors and still serves the Hoffy N.C. 7 hotdogs.
The N.C. stands for "natural casings" and 7 stands for seven inch. Greg also indicates that he has been making Chronis "famous" chili for over twenty-two years and that hasn't change at all. They get deliveries from their meat supplier five days a week to ensure freshness to us the customers. They get everything fresh with the exception of the fries which are semi frozen.
Apparently the rumors got back to Greg and he has set the records straight.
So, for all the Chroni fans, it's still business as usual and as good.
