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.
