S. Rosen’s to Heinz: We Solved the Hot Dog and Bun Mismatch in 2005

July 9, 2021 GMT

CHICAGO, July 9, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- In response to Heinz Ketchup’s recent petition asking for bun and hot dog companies to come together with same-count packaging, iconic poppy seed bun maker, S. Rosen’s is taking a “hot dog” stand to gently remind the tomato condiment manufacturer how they already solved the mismatch in 2005.

Citing the trademarked “Piece Treaty of 2005, Every Bun Has its Dog,” S. Rosen’s buns and Vienna Beef Hot Dogs came together more than 16 years ago and created 8-pack solutions for each of their beloved foods.

“It was a proud moment for us both in 2005, when makers of S. Rosen’s buns and Vienna Beef hot dogs came together for the greater good of hot dog lovers in Chicagoland and everywhere and righted the packaging mismatch with 8-counts for each,” said S. Rosen’s company president, Mark Marcucci.


Vienna Beef president Timothy O’Brien added, “We respect our ketchup makers in Canada who started this petition but want to clarify we already solved this issue. We love ketchup and believe this popular condiment has its place, on french fries and tater tots, just not on a Chicago Style hot dog.
