In 1805, the creation of the hot dog is said to be created by the people of Vienna, Austria. The term “wiener” is name after the birthplace Vienna (Wien). As the story is told, the first master sausage chef received his early training in Frankfurt, Germany. He called the sausage the “ wiener- frankfurter.”
Hot dogs didn’t make its way into the USA until 1871 when, Charles Feltman, a German baker opened up the first Coney Island hot dog stand. He sold more than three thousand sausages in a milk roll during his first year in business. I would call that, a HIT dog, right?!
