Felony Franks is a Chicago-style comfort food concept restaurant that only hires people who have served prison time. Our belief is that when people are given an opportunity to work, trained well, valued and respected, that nearly everyone can thrive. However, formerly incarcerated people are excluded from good opportunities to work. The criminal recidivism rate in Chicago is 54%. If ex-offenders can’t find work, how is it possible to reduce this number?
We also work with the Rescue Foundation, an organization that helps businesses hire ex-offenders.
