RE: Lums Hot Dogs Extinct?
In college I worked for a franchisee who owned several units. We didn't use any special Ollie seasoning on the fries, we did however put Lawry's Seasoned Salt on all the french fries. As far as the Ollie burgers are concerned the were "seasoned" in two ways. The bottom of the bun was spread with a sauce that came in a one gallon (?) jar, it had the consistency of mayonnaise but a redish orangish color, this product came from Lums corporate (the franchisor). Immediately before cooking the meat it was brushed with a liquid seasoning. This liquid was made by mixing water with a packaged seasoning. The seasoning again came from Lum's corporate. The patties were cooked in an Ollie machine which was like a large flat panni press imagine a double sided griddle that cooked the top and bottom of the patty at the same time.
