Nick McAllister, who owns the Traverse City restaurant House of Doggs with his wife Autumn, were crowned victors in the Food Court Wars reality TV show that aired nationally Sunday night, February 23, 2014. The competition pitted the McAllisters and their hot dogs against the beignets of Matt Hunter and compadre Matt Fitzsimons, from Dockside Party Store. The champs won a free year of rent at the Grand Traverse Mall food court. MyNorth videographer Kris Riley stopped by House of Doggs at their new digs to get some backstory from Nick on the competition.
