Wienerschnitzel Secures #1 Spot on Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500 for 7th Consecutive Year

Posted on


In a testament to excellence and unwavering success, Wienerschnitzel has once again taken home top dog on Entrepreneur’s prestigious Franchise 500 list. This remarkable achievement marks the seventh consecutive year that we’ve dominated our category, solidifying our status as America’s leading hot dog franchise.

Consistent Excellence, Unmatched Success

The Franchise 500 ranking is a comprehensive evaluation of franchise opportunities based on numerous factors, including financial strength, growth rate and brand influence. As the prime hot dog franchise on this coveted list, our consistent #1 ranking reflects our commitment to innovative business strategies and the satisfaction of franchisees and customers alike. Not to mention, we topped Entrepreneur’s Top Brands for Multi-Unit Owners list, proving our strength and longevity in the marketplace.

Expanding Horizons: Wienerschnitzel Ventures into Ecuador and Chile

In addition to this remarkable achievement, Wienerschnitzel has further solidified its global footprint with the recent opening of two new restaurants in Ecuador and Chile. This marks a significant milestone as the iconic hot dog franchise continues to extend our reach and bring Wienerschnitzel to markets across the globe. 

These initial locations will be the first of more than two dozen Wienerschnitzel locations set to launch across Latin America over five years. Esteemed businessman and trusted entrepreneurial partner Andres Sotomayor is leading the charge of this expansion in Ecuador, having previously signed a 15-unit development deal with the brand.

“So much of our continued growth has been driven by operators who see the value in what we offer — a simple business model with low costs and virtually no competition in our segment,” Galardi Group CMO Doug Koegeboehn said. “We’re thrilled that this continues to resonate with entrepreneurs, especially on a global scale.”

A Winning Recipe for Success

Wienerschnitzel’s recipe for success goes beyond our delectable hot dogs. It’s rooted in a commitment to quality, a supportive franchise network and a forward-thinking approach that consistently places it at the forefront of the industry.

With low food costs, high profit margins and flexible build models, the future is bright and we’re looking for multi-unit operators who want to be a top dog in their market.
