Sahlen’s Hot Dogs Becomes the Preferred Hot Dog Partner of Charlotte-Mecklenburg SCHOOLS Athletics

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (June 17, 2016) – Sahlen’s Hot Dogs and National Amateur Sports (NAS) have announced a partnership with Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools for Sahlen’s to be the “Preferred Hot Dog of CMS Athletics.”

Look for Sahlen’s Hot Dogs in your high school concessions this coming school year and on-site with their hot dog trailer as they will be at select games beginning in the Fall with football. Being involved in the local community and supporting scholastic sports is important to Sahlen’s and this relationship will further strengthen that. The partnership also includes signage and PA announcements to recognize Sahlen’s as a preferred partner.

“Sahlen’s has always been and remains committed to supporting the communities in which we do business,” said Chris Cauley, Regional Manager at Sahlen’s. “It’s a great honor to be named the preferred hot dog of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg High School Athletics Programs. Participation in team sports plays a key role in turning our student-athletes into responsible adults. We are happy to do our part to ensure high school sports continue to play that role in the lives of these young athletes.”

“We are very excited about the new partnership with Sahlen’s Hot Dogs and the value they place on supporting our athletic programs throughout the school district,” added Sue Doran, Director of Athletics for Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools. “This will benefit not only our high schools, but the booster clubs and fans with the Sahlen’s Hot Dog trailer being present at select games during the school year and providing a fun concessions experience.”
