Hot Dog on a Stick™ is proudly 100% employee-owned through an ESOP -- an Employee Stock Ownership Plan.
An American Icon since 1946, Hot Dog on a Stick™ is 100% owned and operated by its employees. This amazing company began as the entrepreneurial dream of Dave Barham. What began as a small beachfront store in Santa Monica has grown to over 100 locations in 11 states, as well as worldwide locations in Dubai, Guam, Korea, and Brazil! And that beachfront store in Santa Monica is STILL serving our famous food and lemonade to beachgoers today!
Hot Dog on a Stick™ has stayed true to its roots by still serving our original lemonade and hot dogs on a stick, and has grown to include cheese on a stick, French fries, funnel cake sticks, and even Nathan’s Famous beef hot dogs! Today’s menu still offers our original delicious products, that are still made fresh, to serve our hungry, loyal customers.
Hot Dog on a Stick™ serves the finest products, with the friendliest customer service around. Our employees are known for their cheery smiles, bright uniforms, and of course, the striped hat!!
