A hot dog stand is a food business stand that sells hot dogs, usually from an external counter on a public thoroughfare such as a road, street, ballpark, mall, or food court.

Similar businesses include hot dog wagons or carts, which are portable hand carts with a boiler for cooking the hot dogs and keeping them hot, and hot dog trucks, which are motor vehicles that are set up on a road side location, and often include a complete kitchen for storage and preparation.

These businesses (particularly the mobile, cart kind) are often found in sports stadiums, alongside non-limited access roads, or on the streets of major American cities, such as New York City, Los Angeles, and Chicago. According to a report, some hot dog stands are paying up to $80,000 in rents for prime locations in Manhattan, NY.[1]

In popular culture[edit]

In the USA, hot dog carts are also referred as hot dog stand. However, the hot dog stand is normally a semi-permanent structure whereas the hot dog cart is a temporary structure. The health departments use different codes for hot dog stands.[1]
