About Us

A Different Kind of Street Trader.

Since The Hot Sausage Company was established in 1986, we have sought to be different from other street traders, being fully aware of the problems that Councils and Town Centre Managers have had with street trading in the past.

Over the last 28 years we have built an unparalleled reputation for high quality street trading, and now have a growing number of prestigious trading locations across the UK.

The foundation blocks of our success are:


Our delicious range of sausages is made exclusively to our own unique recipes. Taken piping hot from the griddle, they are placed in fresh bread rolls and served with a wide variety of relishes and sauces.We find that our customers return for more time and time again.


We prefer our operators to be Franchisees, since we believe that those with the greatest responsibility for the success of our outlets will deliver the care and professionalism that we and our customers demand. We are committed to ensuring that all our Franchisees are fully trained and qualified.


We design and purpose-build our distinctive barrows and tramcars to fulfil the demands of daily street trading. They satisfy the most up-to-date hygiene standards and public safety criteria and carry a unique heritage style that complements and enhances any pedestrian area.


The Hot Sausage Company strives to achieve the highest standards of presentation, because we believe that street trading should not be sloppy trading! We ensure that our products are prepared and presented in accordance with the highest quality standards.


Each Franchisee has a secure storage facility that incorporates commercial cold and frozen storage units which are constantly monitored. A specialist national distribution company delivers the sausages and rolls in temperature-controlled vehicles.


Our goal every day is to be the best in street trading: to achieve the highest standards of customer service, the best quality food, the strictest hygiene controls and the most professional visual impact on the street. That�s why we justly believe that The Hot Sausage Company is the UK's premier street food company.
