Question: Testing QnA forum features, please ignore

Page

Philosophy is the study of general and fundamental problems, such as those connected with existence, knowledge, values, reason, mind, and language. Philosophy is distinguished from other ways of addressing such problems by its critical, generally systematic approach and its reliance on rational argument. The word “philosophy” comes from the Greek φιλοσοφία (philosophia), which literally means “love of wisdom”. (from Wikipedia [en.wikipedia.org])

That makes me think, so:

Why doesn’t McDonald’s sell hotdogs?

Moderators have a new option on their bar, “Toggle Solution”, it sets the solution. And it can be reset to some other post later if needed. For as many times as needed. But only 1 “solution” is marked per thread.

Let’s not tag stuff here btw :)

What makes you think they don’t? They sell local dishes everywhere, and I would not be suprised if that included hotdogs locally.

The “thank this user” link at the answer is also something for the future, don’t mind that one.

Came across this. http://listverse.com/2009/05/30/top-10-failed-mcdonalds-products/

“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, and have been reintroduced for 2009, dubbed the “McHot Dog.” Despite many attempts to revive the McHotdog, it just never sticks.”

Works like a charm.

Just one thought : can the original poster also mark the topic as solved?
