Sahlen’s® VP of Marketing, Kenneth Voelker, offered more on the recent availability of two Sahlen products at Food Lion by saying, “We are thrilled to provide shoppers with the premium hot dogs and deli meat they deserve. This includes our flagship Tender Casing Hot Dogs that deliver the signature Sahlen SNAP and fresh, never-frozen taste customers crave. We’re proud to launch our premium hot dog products at hundreds of Food Lion stores. It is our hope that customers who have called for our two flagship hot dog products to be carried at their local Food Lion, or those looking for an elevated hot dog, can now enjoy them as often as they’d like.”
