Full Description

The Brand

Hot Dog Café was founded in 1998 and has been a South African favourite for over 14 years, exceeding expectations and always providing only the freshest and tastiest products at value for money prices. We strive to complement the Hot Dog Café experience with excellence and a variety of convenient outlets to suit your every need. We strive to compliment the variety of convenient outlets with excellence and friendly and efficient service, topped off with an array of delicious menu offerings whether you are on the run or looking for a casual sit down meal.

In 2004 Hot Dog Café made a conscious decision with regards to employment and shook South Africa like a sauce bottle. In conjunction with various government funding groups and other organizations we set a new standard for the empowerment of those who had been previously disadvantaged. Hot Dog Café set to work on training, funding (when qualifying criteria is met) and supporting new franchisees to help lead the brand into a new generation.


Our concepts are successful due to the meticulous attention to detail regarding the needs of our customer base. They are designed to suit any space and all special events, filling stations, food courts, shopping malls, cinema complexes, in fact practically any location requiring an on the go food offering. Starting with the larger fixed space concept, the diner, down to the compact and versatile cart option, there is a Hot Dog Café outlet to suit your needs, especially the compact E-Diner.

Best traditional value on a roll. Hot Dog Café is committed to creating a nostalgic journey back to the good old times. A time when people took pride in their products, providing user friendly, mess free on the go meals. We specialise in Hot Dogs of all sorts crafted by a Fleishmeister to an original recipe ensuring an exceptional experience with every bite. Through the years we have added different varieties of Hot Dogs to our menu to suit the taste preference of all our customers.

Good old fashioned juicy burgers are also available at selected outlets as well as our own Coffee Brand
“Jonny K’s”, which is taking South Africa by storm.

Producing a high‐quality product in line with world standards in the vending environment is a challenge few would attempt, but which Hot Dog Café has achieved with resounding success. Not only have we assisted unemployed individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds through development and training, but also assisted corporations and organisations seeking to meet BEE scorecard credentials effectively and sustainably.

In 2014, another iconic South African brand joined the Hot Dog Café stable namely, London Pie. A loved, trusted and known pie favourite is now part and parcel of this winning offering.
