When holidaying in South Korea, we asked locals what street food we must try. “Chung Chun Hot Dog on a Stick!” they all said. So we visited their original store in Gangnam to see what all the fuss was about. We took one bite and instantly fell in love!

They had taken the humble hot dog on a stick and made it into something deliciously incredible. They take a tasty sausage, add stretchy cheese, wrap it in a special crispy and crunchy multi grain batter, add fun toppings, and finish it off with a choice of sauces to suit every mood.

We decided that Aussies had to try this and the good people of Chung Chun happily agreed to give us their top secret recipe and technique. In 2019 we opened our store in QV Melbourne as Chunky Town.

In 2020 we created frozen packs so more people around Australia could get their chunky on. We are now stocked Australia wide in a growing number of independent and nationwide grocery chains.

We thank everyone for their love and support and getting chunky with us!


Very Special Kids cares for children with life threatening
conditions by providing a children’s hospice and
professional family support services.

Chunky Town is honoured and proud to support the
wonderful and inspiring work of Very Special Kids
through financial donations and our people participating
in their fantastic fundraising events throughout the year.

Very Special Kids is a children’s charity that helps more
than 900 families across Victoria who have a child with a
life threatening condition with ongoing support from
diagnosis all the way through to recovery or
bereavement. Sadly, many of the children they care for
will not reach adult hood.

The free of charge family support services include
counselling, advocacy, sibling support, bereavement
support, networking and peer activities, trained family
volunteers and specialist care at the Very Special Kids

The Very Special Kids Hospice offers families access to
planned and emergency respite, as well as end of life care.
Providing 24 hour specialist nursing care, the hospice is a
home away from home that features bright lounge areas,
soft play areas, gardens, a music therapy room, a
multi sensory room and fun filled school holiday and
weekend activities.

It costs over $8.5 million each year to operate Very Special
Kids and they rely on generous fund raising support from
corporates and the community to provide their services
free of charge to families.
