Tastee-Freez Makes For a Sweet Sales Add-On

While Wienerschnitzel is beloved for our signature hot dogs, our franchise owners benefit from the inclusion of Tastee-Freez, the legendary soft-serve dessert brand. This delicious menu offers our guests a variety of sweet treats to enjoy after an affordable and delicious meal. We purchased the Tastee-Freez brand in 2003 as a complimentary co-brand, and sales add-on tool for our franchise partners. The results have been outstanding. With a 60-year history as an iconic American brand, Tastee Freez is a sweet reward for customers and owners alike.

Franchising Models

Wienerschnitzel offers three unique business models to help entrepreneurs capitalize on the best real estate opportunities in their markets. What unites our restaurant models is that they are all designed to be cost effective and maximize profitability, working to reduce labor and food costs, while delivering a fast, efficient, and exceptional service experience for our customers.
