• Apparently they did at one time but it seems that the reason they don't is a one of these two or both: 1) CEO Ray Kroc didn't want hot dogs served 2) other search results reveal people thought they were gross. Here's an excerpt from Wikipedia: Hot Dogs - In his 1977 autobiography CEO Ray Kroc prohibited the company from selling hot dogs, regardless of potential demand, as he regarded them as unhygienic; however, hot dogs were introduced in the late 1990s at some midwestern located stores (at the option of the franchise-holder) as a summer item. UK Stores sold Hot Dogs during the late nineties on the McChoice menu (later PoundSaver). Also, at least one American restaurant offered Oscar Mayer hot dogs at some time, and McDonald's locations at Toronto Metro Zoo and SkyDome in Toronto offered hot dogs until 1999. In Tokyo locations hot dogs were available in 2001
  • LOL!!! Why don't you ask McDonalds about it? 1+ point.
  • Maybe the hot dog manufacturers don't want their reputation tarnished.
  • Well, CEO Ray Kroc prohibited the company from selling hot dogs, regardless demand, he seemed to think that they were unfit to eat. So, other than a few bits of test marketing here and there, McDonald's hasn't and apparently won't sell frankfurters. Despite the fact that the McDonald brothers very first restaurant (The Airdome - 1937) did serve hot dogs.
