MIAMI, May 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- There's a new name, new park, new logo, and now a new dog in town. The Miami Marlins and Kayem Foods announced today a new multi-year sponsorship and licensing agreement to manufacture and distribute Kayem Franks and Sausage at Marlins Park during games, and make Kayem the Official Brand of Franks and Sausage of the Miami Marlins and Marlins Park.
Kayem Foods continues to grow and expand its brand presence throughout Florida. The Marlins news comes just months after Kayem announced a multi-year deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars and EverBank Field. In recent years, Kayem has become the Official Hot Dog of the Tampa Bay Lightning, Tampa Bay Rays and Florida State® Seminoles. Kayem Franks and Sausage are readily available at most major Florida retailers.
"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."
Kayem Hot Dogs 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.
"We are proud to introduce our fans to the Kayem brand this baseball season," said Brendan Cunningham, SVP of Corporate Partnerships, Miami Marlins. "It's all about offering our fans the best baseball experience and we are confident Kayem products will help deliver that promise."
