Today, July 11, marks the opening of the first Wienerschnitzel restaurant, and to commemorate the 56th anniversary of "the World's Largest Hot Dog Chain," you can get an Original Mustard Dog or Original Chili Dog for 56 cents.
The 56-cent price is valid on Tuesday only at participating Wienerschnitzel restaurants, while supplies last and with a limit of 10 hot dogs per person.
In 1961, at the age of 19, John Galardi opened the first Wienerschnitzel restaurant in Wilmington, near the Port of Los Angeles. There are now 331 Wienerschnitzel restaurants in 10 U.S. states and Guam.
"We can't think of a better way to mark our 56th year of making food 'the Wienerschnitzel way' than with 56-cent dogs," said JR Galardi, executive vice president at Wienerschnitzel. "We're proud to celebrate the success that my father, John Galardi, started back in 1961. The only challenge for hot dog fans is choosing between the Mustard and Chili Dog."
