Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa is celebrating July’s National Hot Dog Month with a keiki hot dog decorating contest at the resort’s Hank’s Haute Dogs location on Tuesday, July 19 from 11 am. to noon.

Hank’s Haute Dogs founder Henry “Hank” Adaniya will be there to kick-off the event. Keiki will have the chance to create their favorite dog utilizing featured toppings and condiments from Hank’s Haute Dogs, including green relish, sauerkraut, dill pickles, diced raw Maui onion, shredded cheddar cheese, mustard and ketchup.  There will also be Hank’s Haute Dogs signature items like beef chili, pineapple relish, mango mustard, spicy chipotle ketchup and curry ketchup.

All keiki will use Hank’s traditional buns and Hank’s Frank all-beef, natural-casing hot dogs as the base. The final dogs will be presented by contestants to a panel of judges led by Adaniya, with each entry evaluated based on presentation, taste and creativity.

The timeline for the event is as follows:

– 11 AM.: Sign up to enter your signature dog


– 11:15 AM.: Hot dog creating begins! Keiki will have 30 minutes to design their dog with toppings and condiments provided


– 11:45 AM.: Judging begins. Keiki will present their dog to the judging panel. Panel of judges will choose 1st, 2nd and 3rd place and winners will receive a special prize. Winners chosen based on presentation, taste and creativity

Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa partnered with Adaniya in 2014 to bring nationally-acclaimed Hank’s Haute Dogs to Black Rock on Kā‘anapali Beach, Maui. The beachfront Maui location features some of Hank’s most popular ‘dogs,’ including the Portuguese sausage Hawaiian dog and the Chicago dog, with signature dipping sauces.
