Serious Eats

One of Connecticut's most well-known hot dog stands, Super Duper Weenie, started with a truck that owner Gary Zemola saw in a book of paintings by photorealist John Baeder. With Baeder's help, Gary located the owner and bought the truck in 1992, gutting the inside but preserving and restoring the hand painted exterior.

Then in 1999 the Super Duper truck was featured on Rick Sebak's PBS Documentary A Hot Dog Program (practically every hot dog lover's bible) and a subsequent New York Times article, after which business exploded, and they moved into a permanent location, keeping the truck (actually today, a fleet of trucks) for catering and special events.
