NEW YORK – The Feltman’s of Coney Island all-natural hot dog brand debuted in Texas retail markets as part of an expansion that includes more than 330 Whole Foods store locations in 30 states coast to coast.
Feltman’s 1-lb, six-count Uncured Beef Natural Casing and 1-lb, 10-count Original Skinless Hot Dog Packs will be available at Whole Foods Markets across Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and northern Florida. The products contain no artificial nitrates or ingredients and are naturally smoked.
“We’re thrilled to be expanding our partnership with Whole Foods Markets and bringing our premium all-natural hot dogs to their quality-conscious customers, and their families, in eleven new states throughout the region,” said Joe Quinn, chief executive officer of Feltman’s.
Charles Feltman invented the hot dog on Coney Island, NY, in 1867 as a convenient way to enjoy quality sausages on a bun without silverware, according to the company. Quinn resurrected the legacy brand in 2015 with his brother Michael Quinn, in honor of their late brother who died in the 9/11 attacks. To date, Feltman’s has experienced 300% revenue growth year over year, with its all-natural products now sold at more than 3,400 supermarkets nationwide as well as online at FeltmansofConeyIsland.com.
