One of the six iconic Oscar Mayer “Weinermobiles” that travels the country will be piloted by a Minnesota native this summer. Carly Koemptgen, or as she’s known on the road, “Carly G. The Hotdog Queen,” says she’s ready for whatever experiences this unique summer job provides.

“You never really know who you’re going to encounter or what you’re going to encounter on the road. I’m excited to just talk to people, hear about their experiences, take that with me when it comes to my future career.”

Koemptgen, who grew up in St. Paul and just graduated from the University of Iowa, says her perfect dog is covered in ketchup, mustard and onion.
