The leading hot-dog chain aims to be crate-free by 2022.

Leading hot-dog chain Wienerschnitzel has announced its interest in discontinuing the use of gestation crates by 2022.

Wienerschnitzel joins fellow food companies including Harris Teeter Supermarkets, Costco, Safeway, Kroger, McDonald’s, Wendy’s, Burger King, and Subway in relinquishing the use of gestation crates. Wienerschnitzel, which is a part of the Galardi Group, serves more than 120 million hot dogs per year.
