There's A Hot Dog Hall Of Fame
America's favorite ballpark meal is so popular, that hot dogs need their own hall of fame. Did you know there's already one in existence? Me either. It's The Vienna Beef Hot Dog Hall Of Fame. Unfortunately, there isn't a brick-and-mortar building to visit because that would be really cool. But at least, there are inductees that have been honored.
Hot dog and delicatessen operators become eligible for induction into the Hall of Fame based on a variety of criteria, including how long they have been representing Vienna Beef products.
Criteria also considered include the vendor's contribution to their community, philanthropic leadership, and overall commitment to the quality of their product and the satisfaction of their customers.
