What’s a Wiener Index?


In April 2017, Wienerschnitzel published their Wiener Index, which promises to “uncover consumer trends and preferences.” Among the findings:

  • Almost half of all Americans say they can eat three hot dogs in one sitting (no problem!)
  • The single most popular topping is chili (25%), then onions (21%) and relish coming in third (20%)
  • The most popular name for a hot dog is “dog” which beat out wiener, frank, sausage and Michael (ok, I made that last one up)

Wienerschnitzel commissioned a marketing firm to survey 1000 people for this study. Fun facts. Here’s the press release with all the rest.
