BOSTON, Oct. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- As fans enjoy the 90th year of Boston Bruins hockey, the team is turning to another longtime favorite Boston brand to score delicious new franks, sausage and prime rib roast to be enjoyed at TD Garden all season long. The Boston Bruins and Kayem Foods today announced a new multi-year sponsorship and licensing agreement to manufacture and distribute Kayem Franks and Sausage at the TD Garden during Bruins games. The partnership makes Kayem the official brand of Franks and Sausage of the Boston Bruins and TD Garden.
In addition to Kayem's famous Beef Hot Dog and Italian Sausage, visitors to the TD Garden will enjoy sandwiches featuring Kayem's brand new Prime Rib Roast. The specialty choice Prime Rib Roast is slow roasted for 10 hours and is seasoned to perfection making it juicy and tender. Kayem Franks at TD Garden will feature Kayem's special all-beef recipe, offering a unique blend of spices for a distinct bolder flavor. Kayem Italian Sausage features Kayem's proprietary pork recipe and offers a distinct hearty flavor as well. The plump and juicy franks and sausage have no fillers and are MSG and gluten free.
In 2009, Kayem Foods began manufacturing and distributing the iconic Fenway Franks line of hot dogs, the Official Hot Dog of the Boston Red Sox and Fenway Park. In 2010, Kayem, became the official brand of both Franks and Sausage of the New England Patriots and Gillette Stadium.
"As a brand that has been part of the Boston community for more than a century, we know how much excitement the Bruins bring to people all throughout the fall, winter and, hopefully, deep into spring," said Bob Kufferman, Kayem Senior Brand Manager. "We are thrilled for the privilege of making our top quality, delicious franks and sausage part of the Bruins fans' experience at TD Garden, as well as introducing our delicious new prime rib roast sandwich, as the team begins another winning season and looks to bring the Cup back home."
