History of the Hot Dog

There is a good deal of disagreement regarding the origin of the Hot Dog. People in Frankfurt um-Main, Germany claim they discovered the Hot Dog in 1487. Others argue, the Sausage sometimes called the Dachshund for it's shape was created in the late 1600's by Johann Georghehner, a butcher from Co burg who is said to have traveled to Frankfurt to promote his product. Others in Vienna, (Wi en) Austria claim originating the Hot Dog as they point to the name Wiener as evidence of the Hot Dog's true heritage. In any case it is known that Charles Felt man, a German Butcher opened up the first Coney Island Hot Dog stand in 1871. He sold 3,684 Dachshunds in his first year. In 1893 Chris Ahe, the owner of the St. Louis browns started selling Hot Dogs at the Ballpark. In 1901 the phrase Hot Dog was coined. On a cold April day Concessionaire Harry Stevens was losing money, selling Ice Cream and soda. He ordered his salesmen to buy all the long skinny sausages they could find and sell them from portable Hot Water tanks while shouting get your Red Hot Dachshund sausages while they last. Sports Cartoonist Ted Dorgan could not spell Dachshund so he used the term Hot Dog instead in his strip. Hence the name stuck and is the term we still use today. In 14 the idea of the Hot Dog bun was born. Anton Feuchtwanger would loan his patrons gloves to handle the Hot little items. When he realized that his customers were little inclined to return the gloves he got together with his Brother in Law, a baker, and hence the concept of the Hot Dog Bun was born. In 1936, Oscar Mayer rolled out the first portable Hot Dog cart, they called it the Wiener mobile and the rest as they say is history.

As you can well see people have been

making money selling Hot Dogs for years.
