Fletcher's Fun Facts
- We like to think that you can credit America’s obsession with fried foods, in part, to brothers Neil & Carl Fletcher. In 1942, the brothers invented a brand new food category and perfected what we know today as a “Corny Dog.”
- In addition to the Original Corny Dog, Fletcher’s also serves a Jalapeño and Cheese Dog, a Bird Dog (Turkey), a Veggie Dog, Make Mine Texan – an All-Beef and Brisket Blend Dog, and a Cheezy Pup
- Over 500,000 corny dogs are sold annually throughout the 24 days of the State Fair of Texas. That’s 60,000 pounds of hot dogs!
- Ketchup or Mustard? The Fletcher family says MUSTARD is what you put on a corny dog, but due to customer demand, ketchup was introduced in 1994. During the State Fair of Texas, Fletcher’s will go through 1500 gallons of mustard and 800 ketchup.
- Fletcher’s has delighted celebrities and dignitaries from around the world including Oprah Winfrey, the Jonas Brothers, Emmitt Smith, Mikhail Gorbachev, Julia Child, Dirk Nowitzki, Mario Lopez, and former Texas Governor Rick Perry.
