"Our gourmet hot dogs really encapsulate that wonderful American street food feel and we were really excited that the Three Sisters invited us to Edinburgh as it's such a popular venue.

"The business is all a bit of a learning curve as we are just starting out but we've had a great response so far and had an amazing turn out for our last pop-up in Glasgow."

• The event kicks off this Saturday, the 4th of July, and runs from 12pm -11pm at the Three Sisters bar in Edinburgh's Cowgate. Entry is free.
