Founder of Hot Dog Shoppe Dies

WARREN, Ohio- Family, friends and loyal customers are remembering the founder of the original Hot Dog Shoppe in Warren.

Paul Trevelline passed away Tuesday at his home in Cortland. He started his business in the 1940s after returning home from World War II. The Hot Dog Shoppe in Warren, the Jib Jab Hot Dog Shoppe in Girard and other family-owned hot dog eateries remain lunchtime staples in the area.

Customers say they remember Trevelline as successful and always welcoming.

"He was very nice, he spoke very well, he was very kind and patient," Don Kereluick syas. Kereluick remembers eating at the West Market Street location during his college days.

"Trevelline created a successful business but still remained a simple, ordinary man," his great niece Angela Doverspike told 21 News in an email. 

She calls her great uncle a local legend who had a positive impact on many lives.

"He has touched the lives of all who have met him," she writes. "Paul is now home."

Family and friends are invited to attend calling hours Thursday from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Peter Rossi & Son Memorial Chapel in Warren. A funeral will be held Friday at 10 a.m. at St. Mary's Church in Warren.
