Marlins Park shares hot dog link with Fenway

The newest ballpark in the major leagues will share a tasty link to the oldest – link being the operative word. Kayem Foods, a tube-steak staple in New England since 1909 and the producer of the iconic Fenway Frank at Boston’s Fenway Park since 2009, is now the official hotdog and sausage provider at Marlins Park.

Kayem has been striving to become top dog in Florida in recent years via sports teams, including the Tampa Bay Rays and Lightning, Jacksonville Jaguars and the Florida State Seminoles.

They are featured in the Red Sox spring home in Fort Myers, and now at Marlins Park just in time for a June series with the Sox. Kayem hot dogs are all-beef and noted for a bold taste from a proprietary blend of spices.

“We’re excited to partner with a revitalized Marlins team and add our distinct flavor to the fan experience at Marlins Park. Floridians have really embraced our top-quality franks and sausage,” said Bob Kufferman, Kayem Senior Brand Manager. “Available at the new Park or at your local market, you can enjoy Kayem wherever you are watching the ball game or at your next family cookout.”

Owned and operated by the same family for more than 100 years, the company manufactures Kayem Franks, the No. 1 brand of franks sold in New England. Best known for its Old Tyme Natural Casing franks, Kayem produces over 100 varieties of hot dogs and 300 varieties of deli meats, sausage and dinner hams under the Kayem, al fresco, Schonland’s, McKenzie, Triple M, Genoa, Jordan’s, Deutschmacher, Kirschner, and Essem brands.
