When Josh Kaplan opened his namesake restaurant 10 years ago, Josh’s Hot Dogs, he focused on one major thing — the community.

Kaplan had been previously operating Wolfy’s in Chicago with a business partner but decided it was time to mutually part ways when he wanted something more local in Northbrook.

“We had different visions for where we wanted to take our business. I wanted to localize the business much more and the community was something I really wanted to be in touch with,” said Kaplan, a Northbrook resident.
