CaseDogs, we recently learned, is owned by Casey Giddings, who didn’t enter the hot dog business lightly. He worked at the stand during college, purchased the stand to help him afford to stay in Missoula and he talks like a regular hot dog connoisseur. This dude simply loves hot dogs. And, as luck would have it, Missoula loves hot dogs, too. So perhaps that kind of mutual affection for Chicago-style meat aligned the stars just right for CaseDogs to win this year’s award.
