MEDINA – Four years ago “Frank” was introduced to the Medina community. He has been popular from Day 1, with people posing for photos with him.
Frank is about 6 feet high. He stands outside Rudy’s at 118 West Center St. The giant hot dog was a gift to Rudy’s owner, Kelly Duffied, from her father Joe Russo. Joe and Debbie Russo started Rudy’s, a diner, in 1988.
Their daughter now runs the business. She keeps Frank in the back behind the business over the winter. He recently came out front next to the Post Office for a new season.
“He has many friends,” Duffield said about Frank.
