Portillo’s History:
•    In 1963, Dick invested $1,100 into a 6’ x 12’ trailer to open the first Portillo’s hot dog stand on North Avenue in Villa Park, IL, which he called “The Dog House.” The trailer did not have a bathroom or running water. To get the water he needed, he strung together five 50’ garden hoses from a nearby building into the trailer. 
•    Today, Portillo’s operates 56 stores 
•    Last year, we sold 15 million hot dogs
•    The Portillo’s menu has also expanded since 1963. Initially featuring only hot dogs, French fries, tamales, and soft drinks, the menu has grown to include popular items such as Italian beef sandwiches, char-grilled burgers, fresh salads, and our famous chocolate cake.
