“The new Monumental Dog is the official hot dog of Capital One Arena,” said Ron Tomacchio, Hofmann’s GM. “We want Capitals and Wizards’ fans to enjoy the great taste of Hofmann products both at the stadium and again by purchasing them from grocery stores. We are excited to launch this product for sale at both Capital One Arena and Giant.”
The Monumental Dog is an all-beef, skinless hot dog. All-beef hot dogs are the type most eaten in the U.S., as calculated by Statista based on the U.S. Census data and Simmons National Consumer Survey (NHCS). According to the statistic, 188.72 million Americans consumed all-beef frankfurters and hot dogs in 2019.
Hofmann products have been sold at Capital One Arena since 2016 when the company first sponsored the Washington Capitals and Washington Wizards through Monumental Sports & Entertainment.
“We are excited to partner with Hofmann and bring the Monumental Dog to our Capitals and Wizards fans both at Capital One Arena and those shopping at Giant Foods,” said Patrick Duffy, SVP of global partnerships at Monumental Sports & Entertainment. “Hofmann has been a terrific partner for many years and we look forward to an exciting launch.”
Hofmann Sausage Co. is located in Syracuse, New York, and is one of the oldest hot dog and sausage manufacturers in the United States, dating back to 1879. Hofmann products are available in grocery retail, big box and convenience stores, restaurants, stadiums and entertainment venues, and on college campuses in several states.
