More on Franky June’s Weeny Wagon

Just one bite of food can bring back the nostalgia. Karen Lanier, the founder of Franky June’s Weeny Wagon, kept that in mind as she put together the menu of her food truck. It includes regionally-based hotdogs, like the Manhattan, as well as classic dogs, and even a deep-fried option.

Keep an eye out! Franky June’s calls the Opelika area home—and you may just spot it parked in town.

There’s also an extra special tribute behind the moniker Lanier selected for her food truck. She named it in memory of someone dear: her mother, Irene “June” Uzzell.
