IRVINE, Calif. – Wienerschnitzel is the latest chain to go abroad. The hot dog chain has signed a franchise agreement with International Food Concepts Inc. to begin developing five Wienerschnitzel restaurants in Panama.
The first store is set to open in Panama City later this year. The location will feature a drive thru, and will serve hot dogs, chili dogs, chili cheese fries, Corn dogs and Tastee Freez soft serve treats.
“We know this market well and we’re eager to bring Wienerschnitzel's signature menu items, including its world-famous, secret-recipe chili, to Panama,” said Carlos Ruiz Hernandez, a director and managing partner at International Food Concepts. “We fell in love with the food, which is completely exclusive to the brand, along with its unique value proposition. We’re confident that it’s only a matter of time before Wienerschnitzel becomes a destination of choice for Panama consumers.”
