Hot Dog on a Stick opens in Sunrise Mall

Hot Dog on a Stick, the franchise chain that began in Santa Monica in 1946, has opened an eatery in the Sunrise Mall in Citrus Heights.

The franchise operator is Dave Smith of locally based Dayjoye Enterprises Inc.

The company filed for bankruptcy protection in early 2014 but was purchased later that year by Atlanta-based Global Franchise Group. Today, the website says there are 70 Hot Dog on a Stick outlets in seven states.
