It's not Oscar Mayer, but Galardi Group is focused on serving wieners. The company operates and franchises about 350 Wienerschnitzel quick-service restaurants in California and a dozen other mostly Western states. One of the largest hot dog chains, the restaurants offer a variety of toppings for its wieners, such as chili, cheese, and bacon, as well as alternative menu items including chicken sandwiches, corn dogs, and hamburgers. About 90% of Wienerschnitzel locations are operated by franchisees. Galardi Group also owns Tastee Freez, a chain of ice cream stands, and The Original Hamburger Stand. Owner, founder, and CEO John Galardi opened his first hot dog stand, called Der Wienerschnitzel, in 1961.
