Oscar Mayer Wienermobile Arrives in Central MN [VIDEO, AUDIO]

Abby Faulkner

SAUK RAPIDS – You might spot a highly unusual vehicle here in our area during the next couple of days – and you will certainly recognize it.

The famous Oscar Mayer Wienermobile will be making several stops around central Minnesota through Saturday.

The oversized hot dog on wheels is one of six actively traveling in the country, piloted by new college grads like Texas native Emma Cuellar -  also known by her work name, Sal-emy.

Cuellar says visitors to the Wienermobile walk away with more than just a smile.

Cuellar is one of only 12 drivers, called “hotdoggers,” in the country at the moment, a job which will keep her on the road every day until it ends next June.

The Wienermobile has come a long way since the original in 1936. It’s equipped with solar panels, a flat screen television and comfortable seating for 6.

If you’d like to catch the Wienermobile while it’s here, you still have a chance – it’ll be parked outside the Waite Park Cashwise store on Friday from 10a.m. to 1 p.m., Coborns on Cooper Avenue from 2 p.m. to 5p.m., and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. outside of Wal-Mart.

Check out the video below from our trip to the Wienermobile today!
