    Wienerschnitzel is the World’s Largest Hot Dog Chain specializing in Chili Dogs, Corn Dogs and Chili Cheese Fries. With restaurants throughout the Southwest United States, it’s beloved for its friendly service, fun personality and unique fare. As demand for hot dogs grows globally, Wienerschnitzel is aggressively planning international development.

    Wienerschnitzel was founded in 1961 in Southern California by John Galardi. John wanted his restaurants to stand out from the crowd so that’s why he specialized in hot dogs while others were focused on hamburgers and tacos. He called it Wienerschnitzel instead of something like John’s Hot Dogs to get customers’ attention, it sure did. Being proud to be unique is one of the values the company still lives by today. It’s also still run by the Galardi family. His wife, Cindy, is the CEO, his son, JR, is the President and all franchisees are considered part of the WienerFam.


    Wienerschnitzelは1961年、John Galardiによって南カリフォルニアで創業されました。ハンバーガーやタコスをメインにしたレストランが多い中、ジョンは自分のレストランを目立たせようと、ホットドッグに特化したのです。John's Hot Dogsの代わりにWienerschnitzelと名付け、お客様の注目を集めました。ユニークであることに誇りを持つことは、今日でも会社の価値観の一つです。現在もガラルディ一家が経営している。妻のシンディがCEO、息子のJRが社長、そしてフランチャイジーは皆、WienerFamの一員とみなされています。
