“Take Me Back Tuesdays” celebrates Hot Dog on a Stick’s 70th Anniversary with throwback pricing offer and a Buy One Get One coupon for all customers
ATLANTA – February 25, 2016 – Ah, remember the good old days when life was simpler and a great snack could be enjoyed for less than a dollar? Well, so does Hot Dog on a Stick™! In a nod to nostalgia and the iconic brand’s 70th anniversary, Hot Dog on a Stick is offering a $.70 Original Turkey Hot Dog on a Stick to all customers every Tuesday in March*. The “Take Me Back Tuesdays” promotion not only features the special throwback pricing offer, but also a Buy One Get One coupon for any menu item during your next visit.
“For 70 years, Hot Dog on a Stick has stood for tradition, delicious made-to-order stick items and our famous hand-stomped lemonade,” said Lisa Merrell, Vice President of Hot Dog on a Stick. “So many of our customers consider Hot Dog on a Stick a family tradition so we thought we’d throw the price of our Original Hot Dog on a Stick back a few generations. We hope this encourages customers old and new to come out and celebrate our platinum anniversary with us on Tuesdays in March.”
An American Icon since 1946, Hot Dog on a Stick began as a small beachfront store in Santa Monica and has grown to close to 100 locations across the U.S. as well as locations in Korea. Hot Dog on a Stick is busy planning a big 70th anniversary event at that exact beachfront store in April and more information will be released soon.
