Beginning Friday, August 8th, packages of Lucky Dogs will be available in all 40-plus Rouses across the city. It’s the first time the hot dogs have been sold as a retail product.
“We are very excited about the launch of Lucky Dogs into Rouses Supermarkets,” said Lucky Dog co-owner Mark Talbot in a statement. “Rouses has been very helpful in this endeavor, one local family business helping another local family business. When my brother and I approached our dad about going retail with Lucky Dogs, we all agreed that Rouses was where we wanted to be. They are local, like us. Now you don’t have to go to the Quarter to enjoy Lucky Dogs.”
Lucky Dogs have been part of the French Quarter scene since the Loyacano Brothers opened the first stand back in 1947.
