Kayem Foods scores hot dog deal with the Boston Bruins

Kayem Foods has scored a hot dog hat trick of sorts --- the Chelsea company has just signed a deal that makes it the official franks and sausage brand of the Boston Bruins and TD Garden. 

Kayem has similar agreements with the Boston Red Sox and the New England Patriots so now a company with more than a 100 years of history has deals with three of the region’s major sports teams.

There will be no shortage of carnivore options for fans of the Bruins, a team known for a red-meat attitude on the ice. In addition to Kayem’s Beef Hot Dog and Italian Sausage, visitors to the TD Garden will be able to order sandwiches featuring Kayem’s brand new Prime Rib Roast, the company said. 


“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,” Bob Kufferman, Kayem senior brand manager, said in a statement. “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.”

Kayem Foods, founded in 1909, is the largest meat processor in New England, and the company said it is expanding its presence along the East Coast. In 2009, Kayem Foods began manufacturing and distributing the Fenway Franks line of hot dogs, the official hot dog of the Boston Red Sox and Fenway Park.
