Watch AdChat Interview with Amber Fletcher, Head of Marketing, Fletcher’s Corny Dogs
In 1938, brothers Neil and Carl Fletcher were winding down long-term careers in Vaudeville, having spent several of those years performing at the State Fair of Texas in a show called “The Drunkard”. Fortuitously, as the men were plotting their next moves in life, the brother were offered a unique opportunity to run a food booth at Fair Park. Both men had spent years marveling at the lack of cuisine offered to the Park patrons and knew they had an opportunity on their hands.
Fast forward to today, and Fletcher’s is still going strong. For almost 80 years, legions of Fletcher’s fans have enjoyed a delicious hand-dipped corny dog. Fletcher’s has delighted celebrities and dignitaries from around the world including Oprah Winfrey, the Jonas Brothers, Emmitt Smith, Mikhail Gorbachev, Julia Child, Dirk Nowitzki, Mario Lopez, and former Texas Governor Rick Perry.
We had the opportunity to sit down with Amber Fletcher, Head of Marketing for Fletchers and a third generation Fletcher, to learn more about this famous Texas brand.
