As MonseyScoop.com reported earlier this week, 7-Eleven in Monsey is the first in the nation to go kosher. The 7-Eleven on College Road in Monsey became the first in the nation to offer kosher hot dogs last week. Owner Anthony Mendicino says the move was a no-brainer since 70 percent of his clientele keeps kosher.
Mendicino says offering the kosher meals meant they had to overhaul the store. They bought a new grill and is under the Hashgacha of of Rabbi Zushe Blech.
Then, celebrated kosher chef Sam Indig came aboard, creating a kosher menu of hot dogs featuring 18 different toppings.
Mendicino says the store has sold 1,500 kosher hot dogs in the past week.
