Hot Dog on a Stick, an American icon since 1946, just made life easier for its on-the-go patrons with the opening of the popular chain’s first drive-thru location in West Jordan, Utah.

Guests can now pick up and enjoy fresh lemonade, yummy hot dogs cooked to golden perfection and other delicious bites on a stick–including breakfast –without stepping foot outside of their vehicle.

The new drive thru is specifically designed for anyone in too much of a hurry to sit and savor a meal–deadline-driven business men and women, parents with a backseat full of kiddos, hurried college students, and residents who don’t want to deal with local weather conditions.

For those in less of a hurry, the drive-thru at 2721 West 7800 South provides parking and a walk-up window for easy ordering.

“We live in a hurried world,” says Laurie Sonia, executive vice president. “We chose this location for our first drive-thru because of the active lifestyles of people in the region. We look forward to seeing how patrons react to the fun Hot Dog on a Stick experience while on the move.”

The new drive thru will also be the first Hot Dog on a Stick location to offer breakfast. Guests can now start their mornings refreshed and satisfied with delectable French toast sticks, hash brown and sausage on a stick, freshly brewed coffee and the best tasting orange juice. For an afternoon delight, the new drive-thru will serve savory chicken tenders on a stick, another new menu item being launched at the location.

“Dave Barham, CEO and founder, always looked for inventive ways to reach guests. Before store locations, Dave shared products from a portable hot dog stand hooked to his Lincoln Continental at county fairs. This is another creative approach, inspired by his legacy,” Sonia says.

The drive-thru will mark the seventh store location in Utah.
