Here are five chains in the U.S. that are offering festive hot dog promotions in hopes of getting customers through the door.
It wouldn’t be National Hot Dog Day without Nathan’s Famous, Inc. The iconic hot dog spot will be selling its beef franks for 5 cents at participating shops until 2 p.m. local time.
The convenience store chain is celebrating the national holiday with a $1 Big Bite hot dog promotion that can be redeemed in-store or online for delivery through the 7-Eleven app. Customers can also redeem the promo through the end of July, a representative for 7-Eleven told FOX Business via email.
McAlister’s Deli-Auntie Anne’s
The fast-casual restaurant and famous pretzel chain have teamed up to offer 3-piece Mini Pretzel Dogs for $2.99 and 5-piece Mini Pretzel Dogs for $3.99 at McAlister locations.
This specialty hot dog chain is giving away free Haus Dogs to anyone who has downloaded the Dog Haus App to their chosen smart device.
The American drive-in eatery is participating in the national holiday with $1 hot dogs. It’s also continuing the celebration a day later with a 50-cent corn dog offer set for Thursday, July 22.
National Hot Dog Day was first introduced in the U.S. in 1991 by the North American Meat Institute. It is also promoted by the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council, which estimates Americans spent more than $7.68 billion on supermarket hot dogs and sausages last year alone.
