ESG/Ethical Impact

With more than its fair share of customers daily to watch “the show”, the seams of the business overflowed the stools, chairs, tables and aisle ways; and as a result, small, old wooden school desks were brought in to take care of the overflow. All this just to indulge in America’s newest sandwich sensation, the “Coney Island” – a secret-recipe wiener snuggled in between a custom-made, hand-sliced steamed bun, server “the original way” with mustard, chili sauce and onions. As one customer put it, “It’s like a little piece of heaven…the bun is as soft as angel food, the onions are a fluffy as a cloud and the whole thing just melts in your mouth.” The wooden desks became a mainstay and so did the fans…and outside the window of the popular eatery, life in the city and the world carried on. And on, and on and on. From 1923 to 1990, history was made and a modernization changed most of what one could see outside the window facing Main Street, but inside the gray, dark walls of that original location, (other than a few prices increases) things just pretty much stayed the same for decades – the chili, the hot dogs, in fact, even most of the employees. Native Houstonians say that the shabbiness of the place just added character to the old eatery and that was all part of the magic – and they wouldn’t change a thing – in fact, they didn’t for years.
