Company history

The history of Salzburger Würstelkönigin

1951

the genesis...

Paula Dax, widow of a war fallen, acquires the concession and opens in May the first "Würstelkönig" (sausage king) and first night sausage stand in Salzburg. With a handcart she pulled it daily from the suburbs from Salzburg to the foot of the fortress "Hohensalzburg". Already back then the opening hours were from 20:00 to 4 clock.

1961

the first sales car "Würstelwagen"...

The first motorized Wüstelwagen in Austria is acquired. The sausages are heated with propane gas. Standing upright allows several sales assistants to work comfortably. The car was chauffeured by her 2nd husband Josef. The location moved to the Linzergasse entrance and Austrian courtyard.
