The Wienermobile is coming to a store near you!



Jan 20th, 2016


The Oscar Mayer Wienermobile is coming to a store near you! This is an iconic vehicle that only comes around once in a while. So where did the Wienermobile originate from? Back in 1936 Carl Mayer entered his Uncle Oscar’s office with a new advertising idea: a 13-foot long hot dog car that would travel the streets of Chicago and let everyone know about Oscar Mayer hot dogs. Since then the Wienermobile has been all of the country making a true piece of American history.

Today the Wienermobile stretches 27 feet in length, 8 feet wide, and 11 feet high. It has a Chevrolet W4 series chassis and a V-8, 6.0 liter engine. The inside of the vehicle has a hot dog shaped dashboard, seating for six in ketchup and mustard colored seats, a removable bun roof and has the Official Wiener Jingle horn.

The Wienermobile appearances will have “Hotdoggers” with fun activities, Wiener Whistles and vehicle tours. Please see the list of stores along with dates and times below.

    Love the wienermobile…saw my first one in 1956 in Abingdon, Illinois, at our grocery store. I was 6 years old and that was the highlight of my youth as a farm girl in Illinois. I still have my wiener whistle that I got that day..and even wear it around my neck as a necklace. I could send you a photo. My daughter and her family just opened a boutique in Ely, Iowa, called the Downtown Dachshund, They have a dachshund that looks just like the one on your page. They are having an open house and serving over a
    l,000 Oscar Mayer wieners. Is there any chance you will be in Iowa this summer?…We could schedule the open house around you…Love…Mary Ann Haley…retired teacher of 39 years…and an Oscar Mayer collector…love my photo of little Oscar. Thank you so much.
