I Want You for Wienerschnitzel - NOW!

Wienerschnitzel is now selling over 120 million hot dogs per year at 370 restaurants in ten states and Guam. With our new stimulus package terms, we invite you to get in on the action.

Our restaurants offer a proprietary product line that goes beyond our variety of hot dog and chili dog servings to include Burgers, Chicken Sandwiches, our very own Polish Sausage Sandwich, Pastrami Sandwiches, and a hot breakfast menu featuring Burritos, Biscuits, and French Toast.

Brand new architectural designs are built to handle fast take-out business while also providing an enhanced environment for customers in which to relax and enjoy a delicious meal.

The Wienerschnitzel opportunity also includes co-branding with Tastee Freez dessert treat products. Soft serve lovers have been thrilled with these old fashioned sundaes, root beer floats and cones for almost 60 years, giving each restaurant potential for a second destination that paves the way to extra sales.


"One of the greatest opportunities in my life was becoming a franchisee of Wienerschnitzel.
It put me in a very high tax bracket."

~ Bill Linder, franchisee since 1974
