1. Der Wienerschnitzel was founded in 1961 in Wilmington, CA by John Galardi
Wilmington is in between Carson and Long Beach, and is also home to the third-largest oil field in the US. Fun times!
2. Galardi's first job when he moved to California from Kansas City? Working at Taco Tia, which later became Taco Bell.
He got the job within three days of moving to LA, so you could say he ran to the border (*wink!*) pretty quickly.
3. The first hot dog sold at Der Wienerschnitzel cost $0.15
Meaning you could get 100 hot dogs for $15. Fifteen. Dollars.
