About Us | The Hot Sausage Company | Ipswich

The History of the Hot Sausage Co

Founded in 1989, the Hot Sausage Company was originally based in Ipswich. As a family endeavour, the business is now mainly run from Ipswich by a father and son team.

We now run street stalls in Ipswich,  Colchester and affiliated stalls in Cambridge, Bath and Exeter– with the same distinctive burgundy and gold colour scheme we have always used the same recipe for our traditional sausages that is unique to us.

When we started the company up, one of the key features was the distinctive sausages we sell, something that means we often see return custom. Once you have tried one of our hot dogs, you will want to keep coming back for more! Over the years, the company has expanded based on a reputation for reliability, especially with our catering service for events.

‘How good can it be...it’s just a hot dog you think.’ OH HOW WRONG YOU WERE.Swear these sausages are so tasty it’ll change your life AND they take card. There are some full on high street shops that can’t accept card payments and here we have some bloke in a straw hat sporting a striped apron in a little sausage hut absolutely revolutionising sausage vendor technology.

What to expect

At the Hot Sausage Company, we take great pride in being a well-run business that uses only top-quality ingredients for our tasty hot dogs. This is the case whether you purchase one of our sausages from a stall on the high street or have booked us to cater for your wedding, party or corporate event.


There are plenty of different options for our hungry clients at the Hot Sausage Company. As well as our traditional hot dogs, we offer the full range of trimmings with everything from traditional ketchup to fried or crispy onions and cheese. We also now sell vegan hot dogs.


The sausages we sell are made to our own recipe and specifications. This means that they are derived from fresh ingredients and cooked to order every time. If you buy a meal kit from us, then it will be fresh enough to last for 48 hours before it needs to be consumed.

Best Produce

We only use the best produce for our hot dogs at the Hot Sausage Company. This comes down to the cheese and onion we provide as well as the buns and the sausages themselves. Why not see for yourself and order today.

Meet our Dream Team

The Hot Sausage Company was initially founded by Michael Moran based in Cambridge who very quickly set up operations in Ipswich which was and still is run by  Andrew. It is they who came up with the concept behind the business, the livery, the traditional carts and the distinctive recipe that makes our sausages so ideal in hot dogs. Josh is Andrew’s son. He now helps to run the business with his father. The pair take great pride in running the Hot Sausage Company in a professional manner, eager to do anything they can to make private event catering run smoothly with fast service times that are ideal for larger events. Perhaps that is why the two have enjoyed so many favourable reviews over the years the company has been trading?
