Aramark, the award winning food and hospitality partner for eight Major League Baseball teams, is celebrating National Hot Dog Day, July 18, 2018, with a stacked lineup of gourmet hot dogs.
Hungry baseball fans consume nearly four million hot dogs, each season, at the eight ballparks Aramark serves (Citi Field, Citizens Bank Park, Coors Field, Fenway Park, Kauffman Stadium, Minute Maid Park, PNC Park and Rogers Centre). The Fenway Frank is the most popular hot dog Aramark serves, with Red Sox fans consuming more than 700,000 Franks at Fenway Park each season. Fans in Houston (Minute Maid Park) and Colorado (Coors Field), tie for eating the second highest amount of hot dogs during baseball season, with more than 500,000 hot dogs consumed at each of those ballparks, each year.
In addition to traditional and fully loaded hot dogs, Aramark is committed to providing fans with greater variety, choice and access to healthier menu options and continues to expand vegan and vegetarian offerings in the ballparks it serves.
This season, five of Aramark’s partner ballparks were named to PETA’s 2018 Top 10 Most Vegan-Friendly Ballparks list. It’s no surprise that two of the ballparks on the list, Citi Field and Rogers Centre, also serve up the most veggie dogs, each season. Fans at Citi Field eat the most veggie dogs (9,000 last season), followed by fans at the Rogers Centre, who consumed 6,000 veggie dogs last season.
“Hot dogs are as synonymous with baseball as ‘Take Me out to the Ballgame’. Whether you prefer them fully loaded, vegetarian, or with the traditional fixings, hot dogs continue to be among the most popular foods to eat at a ball game,” said Carl Mittleman, President of Aramark’s Sports and Entertainment Division. “Our chefs continue to elevate and innovate the ballpark staple, tapping in to local flavors, food trends and fan feedback, to ensure our menus offer the perfect hot dog for everyone.”
Here are 18 of the hottest dogs Aramark offers at ballparks around the country:
