    “Veggie dogs are the one of the highest requested item on our social pages, but we wanted to make sure we did it right,” says Doug Koegeboehn, Chief Marketing Officer for Wienerschnitzel.  “After years of research, trials and market testing, we’re confident we found one that tastes amazing and our customers will love. 

    This new veggie dog is no ordinary plant-based dog. It’s the first made from pea-protein and is naturally hardwood smoked with the same spices used on beef hot dogs to deliver the same exceptional, flavor-packed experience.

    The chainwide rollout follows a successful 30-unit market test in areas like Los Angeles, El Paso and Bakersfield. 

    “During the test, vegetarians raved how delicious the flavors were and kept coming back for more,” adds Koegeboehn.  “We hope our new customers are as happy with them as we are.”
