The Apopka Charlie Graingers is on schedule to open early in March, according to owner/operator Ken Maltby.

“I was raised in Apopka but moved to Amelia Island when I was in junior high school,” said Maltby.  “My grandparents, parents, aunts and uncles all graduated from Apopka High School.  We are excited to bring this new but simple concept to Apopka and will be adding two more locations in the near future.”

Charlie Graingers is known for its unique hot dogs, brisket and BBQ.

Charlie Graingers’ menu features 19 different hot dog items with names such as the Peacock, the Mailman, the Emerald Coast, the Wildcat, the Jamaican, the Cape Fear and many more.

If you are not a big hot dog fan, that’s okay, since Charlie Graingers also offers “housemade sandwiches”, salads and various sides.

Charlie Graingers is a fairly new company with five locations in North Carolina and two each in Florida, Mississippi and South Carolina.

But the company has big plans to open more than 100 locations in Florida.



  1. I am so looking forward to this new restaurant coming to our city! I have been by there to see how it is progressing. They will also have bar-b-q too, my favorite, and other items. Guess we will go to the festival tonight to get some bar-b-q. It is going to be cold out there, once the sun goes down, so dress warm. This new restaurant must be a fairly new chain because I don’t remember them way back when I lived in the Carolinas, but again, sounds like something I would very much love to chow down on!
