In honor of its 1961 founding year, participating Wienerschnitzel locations are offering fans their famous original Chili Dog, Mustard Dog, or Kraut Dog for only 61¢ each!

“National Hot Dog Month, which also happens to be our anniversary month, is always a great opportunity to have some fun with our guests and express our appreciation for the support they’ve shown us over the years,” said Tom Amberger, VP of Marketing for Wienerschnitzel. “The much-anticipated anniversary celebration with throwback pricing is a guest favorite that we look forward to almost as much as our fans.”
