The fleet will now include the Wienermobile, WienerMini, WienerRover, WienerCycle, and even a WienerDrone. The new additions will serve their own unique purposes in delivering the hot dogs. The WienerCycle is intended for urban deliveries, while the WienerDrone can travel to remote locations.
"As the most iconic brand, we're going where other hot dogs can't," said head of marketing at Oscar Mayer, Greg Guidotti. "We’re committed to getting our new hot dog in everyone’s hands – and going to great lengths to do this."
The meat company created its first Wienermobile in 1936. The car travels around the country with its class of "Hotdoggers," who man the vehicle. According to the Wienermobile's Instagram account, the car last stopped in Crater of Diamonds State Park in Arkansas.
