From the moment Emil Reichl and Samuel Ladany gave Chicago its first taste of Vienna® Beef, we’ve been making hot dog history.
Vienna Beef was founded in 1893. Austrian-Hungarian immigrants Emil Reichel and Sam Ladany introduced their family frankfurter recipe at the legendary Columbian Exposition. The hot dog was a hit, and Vienna Beef was born. 125 years later, we’re still making our sausages the old-fashioned way, with premium domestic beef and our original recipe, made to the highest of quality standards and hickory-smoked for authentic flavor.
We’d love to see your Instagram photos of you eating your favorite Chicago hot dog at your favorite hot dog spots using the #viennabeef hashtag.
