Wienermobile Fun Facts!

Carl Mayer, nephew of Oscar Mayer, designed the first Oscar Mayer Wienermobile in 1936.

The Wienerwhistle was developed in 1951. In 1958, kids of all ages found this soon to be icon included in packages of Oscar Mayer® Wieners.

Since the inception of ‘Hotdoggers’ in 1988, over 300 college graduates have held the prestigious position.
Between 12 and 30 people are chosen each year for the coveted position from hundreds of applicants.
