Own A Wienerschnitzel Hot Dog Franchise

For over half a century, our hot dog franchise owners have thrived and prospered — Now it’s your turn!

Wienerschnitzel OWNS the hot dog franchise category and we want to share our success with you. Since our founding in 1961, we’ve developed a unique recipe for entrepreneurial success, making us the most wanted hot dog business to own. Entrepreneur Magazine ranks us #1 in our category for some great reasons:

  • Eight consecutive years of same-store sales increases
  • Smaller real estate footprint = lower cost of entry
  • Simple business to operate
  • 25% food and paper costs* – well below the industry average for quick service
  • Privately owned, family-run business
  • Proprietary hot dog and chili products – outstanding in quality and taste
  • Over $1 million in average unit sales (top 50% of system*)
  • Refund contingency on your first license fee if we do not mutually find and approve a new site within 12 months of executing your franchise agreement.**

We have grown into the country’s largest hot dog franchise by delivering high-quality food mixed with excellent customer service and very affordable prices. Hot dogs are a universally loved fast service food and owning a hot dog franchise can give you a highly differentiated business in any crowded market.

Tastee-Freez Makes for a Sweet Increase in Sales

While Wienerschnitzel is beloved for our signature hot dogs, our franchise owners benefit from our ownership of Tastee-Freez, the authentic soft-serve frozen dessert brand. This ability to give customers a sweet treat after an affordable and delicious meal has significantly helped to increase sales. In fact, Tastee-Freez now accounts for a 5% to 10%* uptick in sales on average, and because Tastee-Freez is also an iconic brand with a 60-year legacy of making people happy, this is a match made in heaven.
