JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Oct. 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- As fans throughout Jacksonville enjoy the excitement of a promising new season of Jaguars football, fans at EverBank Field can now enjoy a new and improved hot dog and sausage at every game. There's a new top dog in Jacksonville (and we're not talking quarterbacks) as the Jaguars (www.jaguars.com) and Kayem Foods, Inc. (www.kayem.com) announced today a new multi-year sponsorship and licensing agreement to manufacture and distribute Kayem Franks, Sausage and Deli Meat at Jaguars games, and make Kayem the Official Brand of Franks, Sausage and Deli Meat of the Jacksonville Jaguars and EverBank Field.
As part of the agreement, Kayem has introduced new and improved products for all Jacksonville Jaguars home games. Kayem products will also be available at all future EverBank Field events, including the Gator Bowl and the annual Florida vs. Georgia Football Classic.
Kayem Hot Dogs at EverBank Field 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 hot dogs and sausage have no fillers and are MSG and gluten free.
According to Bob Kufferman, Kayem Senior Brand Manager, "We are thrilled to partner with the Jaguars for the privilege of serving great tasting franks that will enhance the fan experience for millions of hot dog enthusiasts at EverBank Field.
