Sahlen's hot dogs on Bisons' menu

Sahlen's Hot Dogs are now the official hot dogs of the Buffalo Bisons. The two sides reached a five-year partnership. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Sahlen's hot dogs will now be served throughout Coca-Cola Field, including concession stands, private party areas and in Pettibones Grille & Catering Center. The five-year partnership will also include Sahlen's signage throughout Coca-Cola Field as well as other sponsorship elements.

Officials with the Buffalo Bisons say they try to include local products at the ballpark.

"We continue our mission of bringing many of the great local foods into Coca-Cola Field for our fans to enjoy," stated Robert Free, director of food service operations for the Bisons. "Sahlen's has been a Western New York staple for over 140 years and, like the Bisons, is a true summer tradition in Buffalo."

Bisons' fans can taste the official hot dogs, along with a Coke, for free, on Saturday, March 3. That's when the team hosts the annual family day open house at noon.
