Wienerschnitzel Doubles the Dog with the Return of the Footlong Hot Dog

The Footlong Offers Twice the Der for Hungry Hot Dog Fans

June 05, 2012 // // IRVINE, Calif. – America’s Most Wanted hot dog is now twice the size. Wienerschnitzel, the world’s largest hot dog chain, has re-introduced its Footlong: a 12-inch hot dog that satisfies twice the craving of its classic six-inch dog. Beginning June 4, customers can shift their taste buds into overdrive with the new Footlong, which is available in three varieties: the ever-popular Chili Cheese Footlong, the classic Chili Footlong and the traditional Mustard Footlong.

“When one hot dog just doesn’t cut the mustard, the Footlong is the perfect choice to satisfy those bigger cravings,” said Tom Amberger, vice president of marketing for Wienerschnitzel. “Wienerschnitzel customers have always enjoyed the novelty of a footlong hot dog. We like to say this big dog is ‘Twice the Der’ because it’s doubly good and fun to eat!”

The Footlong is available at all Wienerschnitzel locations beginning on June 4. Prices start at $2.59 and may vary by location. Hurry in for this limited-time offer and double your satisfaction with Wienerschnitzel’s new Footlong Hot Dogs.

The Footlong promotion will be supported with television and radio advertising, online marketing, social media and in-store point-of-purchase materials.
