Kasper's Hot Dogs
MacArthur Blvd.
Oakland, CA
The Original Kasper's Hot Dogs on Telegraph Ave. opened in 1929. It was named after the owner, Kasper Koojoolian. The stand closed in 2003 and the building has been vacant since then. The sign has been defaced on both sides with graffiti. In 2022, it was announced that Original Kasper's would be reopening and the signs will be restored. However, in 2023, the building was still in rough shape and the sign, or at least part of it, was still laying on the roof. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2. [map]

The Kasper's Hot Dogs on Macarthur Blvd. was opened in 1961 by Kasper Koojoolian's nephew. [map]

The Caspers Famous Hot Dogs chain, shown below, was started by two cousins of the owner of Kasper's Hot Dogs described above. The first Caspers stand opened in Oakland in 1939. There are now eight locations in the Bay Area. The Caspers signs were built by Ad Art. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2.
