Long live the penny: Ted's Hot Dogs celebrates birthday with deal

Apparently National Hot Dog Day wasn't enough to satisfy Buffalo chain Ted's Hot Dogs.

The long-serving tubular meat purveyors will celebrate their 91st birthday by selling 91-cent hot dogs all day July 19 at each of the nine Western New York locations, which you can find here. A regular hot dog from Ted's ordinarily costs $3.05.

To announce the promotion, Ted's marketing arm created a cute video, below. The penny, the oft-criticized coin in American currency, earns a nice ego boost.

It's not the first time this year that Ted's has orchestrated a 91-cent deal. According to The News' Andrew Galarneau, the popular chain presented the deal Feb. 21, with an additional chance to win an extra hot dog for life - to our knowledge, the latter giveaway is not relevant for the newest offer.

Read a little about the history of Ted's, which began in 1927, under founder Ted Liaros, to serve construction workers on the Peace Bridge.
