In 1988 something completely new was headed for the Netherlands, for Amsterdam, for Station Square and Central Station. It was a young ice cream vendor who decided it was time for something new. He saw that the city had become full countless other ice cream venders. He had started out as one of few, but over time he had become one of several. He had heard about a sausage sandwich from New York. The ‘hot dog’. And that’s how it began… A cooked sausage served in a crusty bun. Finally, after months of sampling and searching, the first real hot dog was available in Amsterdam. It was a major hit! This young ice cream vendor was finally one of few again. At Station Square and Central Station, Amsterdam, , that young vendor was our Grandpa, Grandpa Arnold.
