WHY  PAPAYA  KING

The Papaya King brand has over 86 years of brand equity as a New York City Institution.

Every detail from décor to interior signage to uniforms conveys the brand history and story in a fun, playful and New York Centric way.  Today, say the words "Papaya King" and franks and tropical drinks will instantly come to mind. Papaya King has been called by Zagat the "best, cheapest (stand-up) lunch in the city" and “as vital to NYC as the subway.”

Critic Ed Levine of New York Eats calls it the "best hot dog in the world" and Julia Child and Anthony Bourdain both agree it’s the best hot dog in New York. Over the years, Papaya King has played host to movie stars, rock stars, presidents, business titans, and most importantly, New Yorkers and visitors from all walks of life.
