Aussie creates the HAMDOG and is now selling the intellectual property (patents, designs, trademarks), in a bidding process.
Inventor, and Perth man, Mark Murray, has created a cross between a hamburger and a hot dog. He is aiming to sell the intellectual property for $100 million.
He is selling the US design patent for the “combination hamburger hot dog bread bun” obtained in 2009 and is hopeful that a McDonald’s type company will buy it.
The HAMDOG consists of a beef patty cut in half, with a frankfurt inserted in the middle. It’s topped with lettuce, tomato, cheese, pickles and three sauces – American mustard, tomato sauce and mayonnaise.
