Hot dog and soda is a winning combination. Costco sells 109 million hot dog and soda pop combinations worldwide per year at $1.50 for the combination of the two items. The details: Each hot dog is more than 1/4 pound and the hot dog and soda pop combination have been sold in all Costco locations since its founding in 1983.
The 72 million members of Costco attest to the popularity of the international wholesale store. Whatever you need, Costco aims to have it at good value – quality at the lowest price. Sometimes they carry special items for a certain period of time. "It creates what we call the treasure hunt," Elliott says.
