Wienerschnitzel Grows With New Restaurants in New Mexico and Texas

Posted on


Wienerschnitzel opens new Heritage “Plus” restaurants in cities in Texas and New Mexico

Wienerschnitzel, the World’s Largest Hot Dog Chain, is opening four new “Heritage” restaurants this month as the popular chain begins a season of accelerated growth.

In fact, the four new state-of-the-art Heritage stores – in Española and Los Lunas, N.M., and Lufkin and Nederland, Texas – make July 2018 one of the best months for new construction openings in recent history. What’s more, the Española restaurant is the first in the company to develop the revolutionary Heritage “Plus” design, boasting inside dining to the traditional ‘Heritage’ prototype. The new inclusive dining with drive-thru, and outside patio seating all fit on the same footprint as the standard Heritage model to maximize customer access and service.

Craig Wood of RIOT, LLC, broke ground on the Española site in January and is honored to premiere the groundbreaking new free-standing restaurant concept to the world.

“The closest Wienerschnitzel to Española is 90 miles away in Albuquerque – so we’re delighted to introduce locals to both the world’s best hot dogs and the world’s best-looking hot dog restaurant,” said Woods. “My passion for Wienerschnitzel has only just begun.”

“Craig has the drive and entrepreneurial spirit you need to be a truly successful Wienerschnitzel partner and franchisee,” said Ted Milburn, director of franchise development for Wienerschnitzel. “He and his wife Monica are pioneers that we’re delighted to welcome into the Wienerschnitzel family.”

Wood steps into the Wienerschnitzel business after serving as director of development at Lotaburger for 23 years. He will host a grand opening in Española later this month, and plans additional restaurants in the area.

The new Española Wienerschnitzel is at 601 Silky Road and joins a second New Mexico restaurant opening this month at 1433 Main St. SW in Los Lunas. The two locations become the tenth and 11th restaurants in the state, respectively.

Wienerschnitzel opens in two new eastern Texas locations, at 101 N. Brentwood Drive in Lufkin and 3620 Nederland Ave. in Nederland and bring the company’s total number of restaurants in the Lone Star State to 42.

Details of the Los Lunas, Lufkin and Nederland restaurants will be announced at a later date.
