Free hot dogs are being given away at the University of Glasgow today (Monday).

To celebrate the start of the new university year and a much-anticipated return to full in-person learning for students around the UK, restaurant chain Frankie & Benny’s recently completed phase one of a country wide free vegan hot dog giveaway to students.

When looking at how the brand could provide students with a tasty treat and some much-needed cheer, the ‘Vegan Hotdog University Tour’ was the obvious choice.

‘A hit’

Gabby Barysaite, senior brand manager, Frankie & Benny’s, said: “Our recent ‘Vegan Hotdog University Tour’ has proved to be such a hit, and with such positive feedback from students across the country, it’s a programme that we’re committed to continuing – with a focus on universities in Scotland and Wales.”

She continued: “We pride ourselves on our vegan and vegetarian menus and as a company it’s something that we’re always looking to adapt and update. We hope that some of the students that tried our vegan hotdogs at their universities were suitably impressed and will look to plan a trip to their nearest restaurant soon.”
