History of the Hot Dog
The hot dog can be traced back to as early as 700 BCE! Of course, it wasn’t considered a hot dog back then. Sausage is the predecessor of what we consider hot dogs today. Over time, the sausage made its way to Europe and eventually Germany. There, it became a modern staple. So, how did it make its way to the United States?
The first hot dog stand was opened on Coney Island by a German immigrant named Charles Feltman around 1870. Later, in 1880, a sausage vendor ran out of gloves and began serving his hot sausages in white buns instead. Thus, a tradition was born. By the 20th century, the hot dog as we know it today became a favorite treat by many.
While many people think of hot dogs as a ballpark treat, they actually are a popular choice of food at airports and restaurants as well! Similarly, Primo Pizza in Dracut is one of the top restaurants for all-beef hot dogs this summer season! Currently, we’re offering a grilled all-beef hot dog with fries. Now, let’s get onto some fun facts about hot dog consumption in the summer!
-Memorial Day to Labor Day is the peak hot dog season. Americans typically consume 7 billion hot dogs.
-Residents of Los Angeles consume more hot dogs than any other city in the United States
-On Independence Day, Americans eat an average of 150 million hot dogs. That’s enough to stretch from Washington D.C. to Los Angeles five times.
