Frankly Sausages on Cherokee Street will close its doors Saturday after two and a half years in the space. The concept started in late 2015 as a food truck, which owners Bill and Jamie Cawthon also are selling.
"Despite giving it our very best efforts, we simply couldn't make the location work for our concept, so we will be serving our last dinner this Saturday," the owners said in a post on the Frankly Sausages website. "Please help us say goodbye by allowing us to do our favorite thing, serving you a great meal."
In addition to closing the restaurant space, the Cawthons are selling their food truck, their brand and all future bookings, the post said. This includes:
- 1999 Chevy Freightliner with a new refurbished engine and a new transmission
- Hot line and hood, a prep table and a fully outfitted kitchen
- "Frankly Sausages" brand, recipes, bookings, and website
- Fully licensed for the city of St. Louis
"While focusing much of our energy on trying to make a successful run of our brick and mortar business, we have not been able to fully optimize the food truck business for Frankly, which we believe a dedicated, excited operator could come in and have a successful run," the post said.
The owners are listing the food truck and all of its assets for $40,000.
