Sam’s Club Just Started a War With Costco Over Polish Hot Dogs

The Polish hot dog saga continues. A week after Costco announced plans to remove Polish hot dogs from its food court menu, rival Sam’s Club stepped up to the plate and revealed plans to offer its own ethnic frank at all of its locations, starting on Monday, July 23.

The food news broke via Twitter on Thursday, July 12, as Sam’s Club hilariously welcomed the frank into its family of food. “‘Let them eat Polish dogs’ – Marie Samstoinette, probably,” the big-box store tweeted. “Polish dogs will be available at all Sam’s Club cafes starting July 23 for only $0.99!”

Though 200 Sam’s Club cafés around the country already had the Polish dog on the menu, July 23 marks the first time the wiener will be available at all of the retailer’s locations nationwide. This wide release is meant to ensure “people could get their Polish dog fix and at a great value,” a rep for the company said in a statement to Us Weekly.

The quarter-pound dogs come on a steamed bun and will be sold for just 99 cents, putting them just about on par with Costco’s discontinued Polish dogs, which cost $1.50 but came with a soda.

What’s more? You don’t even have to be a Sam’s Club member to dine in the café and get your Polish frankfurter fix.

Meanwhile, Costco doesn’t seem to be backing down from its July 5 decision to axe the popular sausage from its menu, despite a petition to save the snack food that’s already amassed more than 9,400 of the 10,000 requested signatures. Perhaps this move from Sam’s Club will push the retailer to change course.
