Hot Dog on a Stick, which was founded on Muscle Beach in Santa Monica in 1946, will celebrate its 75th anniversary on Saturday, April 24, with 75-cent "Original Turkey Dogs" for customers at all participating locations.  

"While it's impossible to know just how many people we have served over our incredible 75-year history, the mark Hot Dog on a Stick has made in the hearts and lives of our customers and Hotdoggers (past and present) is clear," said Annica Conrad, chief marketing officer for Global Franchise Group, the parent company of Hot Dog on a Stick.  

"Hot Dog on a Stick is about enjoying life to the fullest and making lasting memories. We hope everyone joins us on April 24th to celebrate our incredible ride and have some fun," she said.  

Known for its made-to-order stick items, "hand-stomped" lemonade and bright striped uniforms, Hot Dog on a Stick was founded by Dave Barham, who used his Mother's cornbread recipe to create the now-famous dog on a stick and grew the concept from the beach to county fairs to malls.  

Hot Dog on a Stick has five dozen locations in the U.S. To find one, visit www.hotdogonastick.com.
