Wienerschnitzel - Franchise

What Makes Wienerschnitzel a Wise Investment?
You can’t be in business for close to 60 years without getting a few things right. Founded in 1961 by John Galardi in Southern California, Wienerschnitzel is the largest hot dog franchise on the planet, with more than 325 restaurants open in 10 states. By elevating the hot dog to star status on its innovative menu, Wienerschnitzel capitalizes on America’s deep love for the hot dog with tried-and-true classics such as the Chili Dog, Corn Dog, Polish Dog, and more. Best of all, Wienerschnitzel provides an exceptional product and exceptional customer service at a price point that all Americans can afford.

Here’s a few of our recent highlights:

  • 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
  • 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.*
  • Over $1 Million in average unit sales (top 50% of system*)
    *Please read our 2019 Franchise Disclosure Document for more information/ terms and conditions
