An Australian man has managed to keep a patent to get a snack that is a combination of a hamburger and a hot dog. He calls the snack the ‘Hamdog’.

The idea for the Hamdog was pitched by Mark Murray in the uitvindersprogramma Shark Tank. The judges told him then that it was impossible for a patent to get on the roll, because there is no expensive lawyers needed.

Murray had already been in America for a patent on the snack, and now also in Australia. Now is the Hamdog is already on local markets and festivals.

The snack is the length of a hot dog and in the width of a hamburger. The burger is the center cut through the middle, runs the hot dog. Furthermore, lettuce, tomato, cheese, pickle and three different sauces laid.

The roll for the Hamdog is currently hand-made in a bakery in Perth. This is the production of the snack period. Murray is busy with the development of a machine, so the roll on a large scale can be produced. The Hamdog costs 8 Australian dollars (about 5,40 euros).

The inventor of the Hamdog is now trying to find investors to snack throughout Australia to be able to operate via franchise entrepreneurs.
