Johny's Hot Dog: 'Most Popular Menu Item in Asia Pacific'
Rathore recalls, "There was a cinema hall here during my childhood days where hot dogs were sold. The cinema hall shut down in the 1970s and I started selling hot dogs outside it." Crediting his mother for his grand success, Rathore affirmed that he gets all the motivation from her. He tells that it is his mother's recipe that has been fruitful towards winning such humongous fame and recognition.
While Johny Hot Dog's list of achievements is endless, the most noteworthy of them all is the 'Most Popular Menu Item in Asia Pacific' in the first-ever Uber Eats APAC Restaurant Partners Awards 2019.
