Danbury’s JK’s restaurant listed at $2.2 million


JK’s, a staple of Danbury’s dining scene for nearly a century, is listed for sale at $2.2 million.

The restaurant began as the Original Texas Hot Weiners in 1924 under the ownership of brothers George and Peter Koukos. JK’s has moved twice in its years of operation, arriving at its current location at 126 South St. in 1974.

According to his listing, “this particular business flourished” when the Covid-19 pandemic crippled the restaurant industry and forced many independent restaurants to close. The list added that JK “continues to grow and could expand even further.”

“The family that owns this would love nothing more than people who are able and willing to spend years of devotion to someone with the same dream,” the listing added.
