A Better Hamburger at a Hot Dog Chain? Wienerschnitzel Offers Three New Gourmet Burgers and One Improved Returning Classic
Some of the best new hamburgers of the year aren’t being served at a leading burger restaurant but at a growing national chain known for something else entirely – hot dogs. That’s the proposition behind Wienerschnitzel’s launch this week of three new gourmet burgers and one improved returning classic as part of the Irvine, Calif.-based World’s Largest Hot Dog Chain’s plan to capture a larger slice of the hamburger market (Pictured: Blazin’ Bacon Guacamole Burger)

“For more than a year, we’ve been working to bring our burgers up to the Wienerschnitzel standard – to be as craveable as our chili dogs, corn dogs, and chili cheese fries,” said J.R. Galardi, executive vice president at Wienerschnitzel. “Our customers like, bold, flavorful food, and customizable toppings – and the results won’t disappoint the growing number of hot dog fans who also love hamburgers. It’s finally possible to satisfy both passions at Wienerschnitzel.”

Founded by John Galardi in 1961 with a single hot dog stand in Wilmington, Calif., Wienerschnitzel is one of the real pioneers of the quick-service food industry. Having successfully carved out a niche with hot dogs, The World’s Largest Hot Dog Chain serves more than 120 million hot dogs annually.
