A Bradenton restaurant named Willy-Yums has announced that customers can now pay for their favorite hot dog sandwiches using popular cryptocurrency dogecoin (DOGE).
Customers who want to purchase Willy-Yums hot dog can scan the restaurant’s Dogecoin QR payment code from their wallet app.
Commenting on why it chose to add Dogecoin to its list of payment methods, restaurant owner Rob Williams said he was attracted to the cryptocurrency due to its design, which has a mascot dog that corresponds with its hot dog business.
Williams said he got drawn to Dogecoin due to the hype around the cryptocurrency.
“They call it the people’s coin. It’s inexpensive. It’s easy to get. It’s easy to share. It’s simple,” Williams said.
DOGE Customers to Get 50% Discount
Although the cryptocurrency was added to Willy-Yum’s payment method a few months back, Williams said people had not been using it to make purchases for the sandwich because of a lack of awareness..
Williams believes more customers will be utilizing the payment method in the coming months as cryptos become more popular.
In a bid to get more people to use the payment method, Willy-Yums said customers will get a 50% discount by next month when they make payment for their hot dog sandwiches using the cryptocurrency.
Increase in Dogecoin Payment
Dogecoin payments have been enabled on different platforms, with many companies still considering adding the cryptocurrency to their list of payment methods.
As reported, a top United States burger restaurant, MrBeast Burger, teased customers that it might accept DOGE payments for its sandwiches.
