CHELSEA, Mass., Oct. 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- New England Patriots fans watching the game from home now have a chance to taste what it's like to be inside Gillette Stadium. Kayem Foods, official brand of both Franks and Sausage of the New England Patriots and Gillette Stadium, announced a new multi-year sponsorship and licensing agreement to manufacture and distribute Kayem Patriots Franks at retail markets throughout New England.
As part of the new retail agreement, customers can now purchase deliciously-seasoned Kayem Patriots Franks at their local Shaw's Supermarkets. Kayem Patriots Franks feature Kayem's special all-beef recipe, offering a unique blend of spices for a distinct bolder flavor. The plump and juicy franks have no fillers and are MSG and gluten free. Kayem Patriots Franks are larger than traditional Franks, making it a fan-favorite on game days.
"Enjoying great tasting food is an important part of the Patriots experience and having Kayem as the official brand of Franks and Sausage allows us to provide quality products at Gillette and now for our fans watching from home," said Murray Kohl, Vice President of Sales for the New England Patriots.
Kayem will kick off the new retail Patriots' frank on October 4 by launching The Ultimate Pats Fan Experience promotion which gives fans a chance to win a once-in-a-lifetime VIP Patriots experience. The grand-prize winner will receive two mid-field tickets to the Patriots vs. Colts game on December 4, a pre-game official Patriots tailgate, a tour of the field before the game, pictures with cheerleaders, an official Patriots jersey, an autographed football and a chance to retrieve the tee after kickoff. Fans can enter to win on www.Kayem.com or by visiting Shaw's through November 17.
"We're proud to offer our high-quality All-Beef Franks at Gillette Stadium and now in our customers' homes," said Bob Kufferman, Kayem Senior Brand Manager. "As the 'Official Hot Dog and Sausage of the New England Patriots,' over 68,000 Patriots fans can enjoy Kayem Franks at Gillette on game day. Now millions of New England residents can recreate the same game-day food experience at home with Kayem."
