FRANKIE & Benny’s have a special treat to celebrate the start of the new university year and a much-anticipated return to full in-person learning for students around the Uk.

 The talian-American restaurant brand recently completed phase one of a country wide free vegan hotdog giveaway to students

 When looking at how the brand could provide students with a tasty treat and some much-needed cheer, thVegan Hotdog University Tour’ was the obvious choice. 

The much-loved UK brand has for many years run their student offer (20% off food), as well as priding themselves on offering a broad choice of vegan and vegetarian options.  

 The first phase of the ‘Vegan Hotdog University Tour’ kicked off at Nottingham Trent University in late January 2022, followed by successful stops at Bristol Uni, Manchester Met, Leicester University, Birmingham City University, Nottingham Uni, Plymouth Uni, Sheffield Uni and Leeds Beckett. 

Off the back of phase one and following the overwhelmingly positive feedback from students across England, Frankie & Benny’s will continue with the activity, this time focusing phase two of The Tour’ on Scotland and Wales. After a short break, theVegan Hotdog University Tour’ will restart and head to the following sites:


• Glasgow University on 7 March
• Edinburgh University on 8 March
• Newcastle Uni on 14 March 
• Cardiff Met on 21 March


Be sure to continue to follow the tour and any relevant updates onFrankie & Benny’s social: @frankienbennys, as the brand will be handing out vouchers at their upcoming university stops (for freebies in restaurants), with students also in with a chance to win Frankie’s for a year when they sign up with the brand.  


The ‘hero’ of the whole tour has been the famous ‘Vegan Dog’, a new vegan option on the Frankie & Benny’s menu and one that is proving very popular with vegans and non-vegans alike! The juicy plant-based hotdog is served on a soft glazed roll, with fried onions, gherkins, fiery chillies, BBQ sauce and delicious vegan mayo.

Gabby Barysaite, Senior Brand Manager, Frankie & Benny’ssaid: Our recent ‘Vegan Hotdog University Tour’ has proved to be such a hit, and with such positive feedback from students across the country, it’s a programme that we’re committed tocontinuing – with a focus on universities in Scotland and Wales.”  

She continued: “We pride ourselves on our vegan and vegetarian menus and as a company it’s something that we’re always looking to adapt and update. We hope that some of the students that tried our vegan hotdogs at their universities were suitably impressed and will look to plan a trip to their nearest restaurant soon.
