Texas fast-food chain Golden Chick has partnered with Dallas-based Fletcher’s Original Corny Dogs to sell its iconic fried hot dogs on a stick at Golden Chick restaurants beginning today through Oct. 25, the dates that the Texas State Fair would have been held.

It was announced earlier this summer that the State Fair was canceled in 2020 because of concerns that crowds would contribute to the spread of COVID-19.

It’s the first time Fletcher’s has sold its corny dogs at a fast-food restaurant, outside of the years when the family franchised Fletchers’ food from 1983 to 1992 in Arizona, Oklahoma and parts of Texas.

Fletcher’s responded to the cancellation by staging pop-up events all over North Texas that have enticed thousands of people. They’re booked through December.

The two companies have a long history in the Lone Star State. Fletcher’s began frying hot dogs in Dallas in 1942; Golden Chick started frying chicken in San Marcos in 1967. Both companies are also headquartered in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
