A letter from the founder…


We are pleased you are spending some time looking at what a Hot Stove Saloon™ franchising opportunity has to offer.

A Hot Stove Saloon™ franchise is an excellent way to be part of a unique and successful business targeted to people who enjoy great food, a friendly atmosphere, and a sports motif that celebrates the joy of baseball.

In fact, our restaurant, The Hot Stove Saloon, was named after the Hot Stove League, a term defined as “off-season baseball talk amongst fans and media.” These discussions, which began well before the age of television, often took place off-season around the "hot stove" where trades, training, who’s hot and who’s not all dominated the conversation.

In our restaurant today, we serve up good food in a relaxed atmosphere that features baseball memorabilia throughout, some of it dating back to the early 1900s. You won’t see hockey pucks or footballs here (not that we don’t enjoy other sports, too), but our Hot Stove Saloon™ concept is about food and baseball. And this is the brand that we will promote through our franchisees.

So, please take some time and peruse our website. If you have questions, give me a call or e-mail me (508-432-0771) or (rs.leidner@sandlotinc.com). If you think you’re interested in exploring the idea of a franchise, simply fill out the form and get it back to us. And, if you’re in Harwich Port, stop by and see our place! We’re open daily from 11:30 a.m. If it looks as if we might be a good fit together, let’s schedule a meeting.

By the way, you don’t have to be a baseball connoisseur to own a Hot Stove Saloon™ franchise – although previous restaurant experience is a big plus. So, if you are considering in a career in the restaurant industry (and you are a baseball fan, too!), check us out. We believe we are offering a “home run” opportunity with this franchise. Let’s talk.

Sincerely, Ron Leidner Founder, Hot Stove Saloon
