American fast food chain Wienerschnitzel has signed a development agreement with Tejas Dogs to build 20 new restaurants in the US state of Arkansas.
The restaurants will be delivered over the next 12 years, with plans to start the development schedule with three stores in northwest Arkansas.
Brian Shinall, Commercial Director of Tejas Dogs, said, “With personal roots in Arkansas, coupled with our extensive business experience, we have found the perfect match with Wienerschnitzel and their unique franchise model.
“As we considered many quick service restaurant (QSR) diversification opportunities for our business portfolio, Wienerschnitzel captured our attention with its recipe for success spanning six decades, including low food costs, simple operations, strong corporate support, and the entirely underserved markets of Arkansas; and let’s not forget America’s love of hot dogs.
Founded in 1961, Wienerschnitzel specializes in serving hot dogs and has locations in several US states. To fuel its growth, the fast food chain is now focusing on franchise expansion through multi-unit partnerships and area development programs.
The deal with Tejas Dogs follows an announcement made in 2020 for a 20-unit development in Louisiana. Together, the agreements will allow the company to expand its footprint in the Southern and Midwestern states.

“Wienerschnitzel is at the top of a very special segment that has stood the test of time and only gets better with age. As we continue to experience unprecedented growth and expand our family of franchises, there has never been a better time to partner with Wienerschnitzel.
Currently, Wienerschnitzel operates more than 330 franchises in ten states.
