Entrepreneur Magazine ranks Wienerschnitzel #1, and Franchise Chatter names the iconic hot dog franchise a smart investment in its new ranking
The new year is well underway, and the industry has taken notice of our hot dog franchise opportunity.
Entrepreneur Magazine’s annual, “Franchise 500”, has once again ranked Wienerschnitzel #1 in the Hot Dog category for the fourth consecutive year.
Franchise Chatter, a publication dedicated to connecting entrepreneurs with franchise opportunities, recently named Wienerschnitzel to its list of “Five Best Hot Dog Franchises.” Coming in at No. 2, Wienerschnitzel stands out on the list for not only being a brand that has endlessly championed the hot dog, but also continues to grow and innovate.
“Wienerschnitzel, which claims to have the world’s most wanted wiener, has an impressive menu of 12 signature hot dogs, including such creative options as the Green Chile Chili Cheese Dog and the Junkyard Dog topped with French fries, chili sauce, a slice of American cheese, French’s mustard, and grilled onions. Each of their offerings can be ordered with an all-beef dog or a Polish sausage,” Franchise Chatter reports. “The menu also includes burgers, sandwiches, breakfast options, snacks and sides, and Tastee Freez frozen treats.”
The reason why Wienerschnitzel ranks so high is that in 2020 posted its best year in sales – and after 60-years in business, that’s saying a lot!
While the rest of the QSR category struggled to overcome the challenges caused by the global pandemic, Wienerschnitzel hit a new stride with double-digit sales growth in 2020. And these numbers are not a fad. Now in its 10th consecutive year of same-store sales growth, Wienerschnitzel continues the trend in 2021
Our menu of hot dogs and Tastee Freez soft-serve desserts stand out in the highly competitive QSR segment – and with strong sales, and acommitment to innovation, – Wienerschnitzel is a brand built for the future.
“Our increased sales have been phenomenal, but we’re most proud of our franchisees adaptation, following our lead, and producing huge results” says Rusty Bills, vice president of operations. “That’s what gives our franchise owners enormous trust in us. They know we’re looking out for them.”
