- Americans will eat about 7 billion hot dogs from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Wednesday, millions of Americans celebrated National Hot Dog day. That was the case in the Northwoods.
Hoggie Doggies Snack Shack is a staple in Woodruff. Their All-American favorite is the Chicago Style Dog.
The owner Judy Rossi has been there for 12 years and says they go through a lot of dogs.
"Last season we went through almost 17,000 hot dogs. This year we're on track for about 18,000," says Rossi. "Statistically we go through about 8 tons of potatoes in a season, which is close to 16,000 pounds for our homemade french fries. Those are some big numbers for this little place."
Hoggie Doggies gave out double stamps on their frequent buyer card Wednesday. They also have many things on their menu that go perfectly with a hot dog, and the customers keep coming back.
"I'm really huge on customer service so I really strive to have my employees treat the customers as if they were friends," explains Rossi. "And that's what's nice about this place. We take your first name and put it on the bag and instead of calling a number we call your first name. That's a little personal touch we like to add."
At busy times, though, the line might be more than a "foot long".
Hoggie Doggies is open daily from 10:30am-10 at night.
