The HDOS Difference
The appeal of Hot Dog on a Stick™ is obvious: we all grew up eating these delicious treats on trips to the beach or the mall, and the hand-stomped lemonade tastes just like summer, even if you drink it in the middle of a snowstorm. Our world famous Party Batter recipe is the same one we have been using since we opened our first store in 1946, because if it ain’t broke don’t fix it! Not only is our fast food brand quick and convenient, but our ingredients and recipes create the high quality food that the rest of the fast food industry is missing.
