The Wienermobile to stop at Kroger stores in Loganville Thursday

As part of its annual “coast-to-coast wienie roast,” the iconic Oscar Mayer Wienermobile is visiting Atlanta this week and will be making two stops in Loganville on Thursday, Dec. 5, 2019. The vehicle will stop at both the Kroger stores in the Loganville area and this year the Wienermobile is offering a photo experience, the chance to look inside the Wienermoble and a couple of small take-home goodies. These include the famed Wiener Whistles.

The first stop in Loganville will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Gwinnett County at the Kroger at 910 Athens Highway. The Wienermobile will then head up Highway 78 and stop at the Kroger in the city at 4753 Atlanta Highway from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.

It will take part in a couple of Christmas parades in Powder Springs and Jack Creeks on Friday and Saturday and other Kroger locations on Sunday. But you will still get a chance for it to be close by again on Monday and Tuesday when it will be at the Krogers in Athens, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Kroger at Alps Road in Athens and from 2 – 5 p.m. at the Kroger at Epps Bridge Road in Athens. It will be at the Kroger at 2301 College Road in Athens from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Tuesday and the one at 700 US Highway 29 North Athens from 2 – 5 p.m. on Tuesday.
According to the press release, the Wienermobile dates back to 1936 when Oscar Mayer’s nephew Carl pitched it as a way to lift Americans’ spirits during a difficult time in the nation’s history.

“Today, that same mission is carried out by Hotdoggers, young men and women hired to drive Wienermobile across the country as brand spokespeople. Once they’ve proven they can cut the mustard, Hotdoggers will visit dozens of states and travel tens of thousands of miles spreading what Oscar Mayer calls ‘miles and miles of smiles,’ the press release reads.

The “Hotdoggers” bringing the Wienermobile to Loganville Thursday are “Mac-N-Cheese Mikayla” Minnick and her partner, an Atlanta native who goes by the name “At the Grill Alex.”
