Hot Dogs Are American as Apple Pie
Americans love hot dogs – more than any other country. At sporting events, local picnics, carnivals, festivals and restaurants, Americans consume over 20 billion hot dogs a year.
According to recent survey data obtained by the American Hot Dog and Sausage Council, Americans purchase 350 million pounds of hot dogs at retail stores – that’s 9 billion hot dogs! That works out to about 70 hot dogs per person each year.
Hot dogs are served in 95 percent of homes in the United States. 45% of hot dogs are consumed at the retail level, 15% are purchased from street vendors, 10% are consumed at festivals and events and 9% are purchased at ballparks. The remaining 21% are consumed at restaurants.
There are currently only 6 hot dog restaurant franchises in the United States, serving a population of 318.9 million. Of those 6, only 2 have national presence.
