In 1972, they moved to 2501 N Damen Avenue and in the next few weeks will move to the corner of Pershing and Morgan. The Damen Avenue facility will continue to house the Factory Store/Cafe', sales, marketing, customer service, and Hot Dog University.

    I wonder if the new Pershing location is hiring? I live right down the street and need a job!

    FYI: Vienna Beef has reintroduced the jalapeno cheddar dog in honor of the opening of baseball season. Doug Sohn was last seen serving this wonderful encased meat at spring training in Arizona.

    PLEASE teach those heathens to make a decent dog! I've run into a few Vienna hot dog places down there. Unfortunately, they were staffed by people who probably have never even tasted a Chicago dog, let alone learned how to make one. They need to up their game for my annual visits! :wink:

    CSD on AMAZING RACE JUNE 1ST

    Last summer, I met with the producers of The Amazing Race and was filmed teaching contestants how to properly dress a Chicago style hot dog in front of Wrigleyville Dogs on Clark Street. The final episode will be aired on Thursday, June 1st on CBS at 9:00pmCST. The YouTube preview shows the final contestants wearing yellow, paper Vienna Beef hats and serving fully dressed hot dogs from a Vienna Beef vendor box. I'm hoping I made the final cut. We'll see!

      Vienna Beef celebrates 125 years in business this year with the opening of its own history museum at company headquarters along the Chicago River on Wednesday.

      The displays at 2501 North Damen Avenue include a meat grinder made in 1859, pictures of the original Vienna hot dog stand and factory, and a gold-plated cocktail frankfurter. Don't worry, you can buy a fresher hot dog at the factory store on-site with all the classic Chicago fixings-- what company Vice President of Marketing/eCommerce Tom McGlade called the "seven sacred condiments" of mustard, relish, chopped onion, sliced tomato, a kosher dill pickle, sport peppers and celery salt on top.
