Wienerschnitzel: Moms eat free on Mother’s Day

Wienerschnitzel restaurants will offer free chili dog meals to mothers on Mother’s Day.

The offer will be available on May 13 and include a chili dog, small fries and small soda.

Participants can prove their “mom-bership” by bringing along their children, presenting a family photo or sharing a family memory or story. No additional purchases will be required.

“We’re celebrating Mother’s Day the Wienerschnitzel Way — and having fun honoring families in the process,” said J.R. Galardi, president of Wienerschnitzel.

Founded in 1961 with a single hot dog stand in California, Wienerschnitzel now serves more than 120 million hot dogs a year and operates or franchises a total of 333 stores in 11 states — including seven locations in the Grand Junction area.
