SAN DIEGO – Ralphs grocery stores across California will carry Slater’s 50/50 Beef & Bacon Hotdogs. The premium quarter pound franks are 50% beef and 50% bacon.

“Slater’s 50/50 restaurants were founded here in California and are known for our over-the-top menu options and mouth-watering flavor combinations,” said Ernie Romo, chief operating officer for Slater’s 50/50. “This hot dog product extension was a natural next move for us, and we know our California consumers will love being able to find them on the shelves at Ralphs and throw them on the grill at home.”

In addition to Ralphs stores, Slater’s 50/50 Beef & Bacon Hotdogs are sold in select Kroger stores in Atlanta, Nashville, Louisville and Columbus, Ohio, as well as other retailers across the country.

“These half-beef, half-bacon hot dogs have really started to take off, and we are super excited that Ralphs has picked them up, just in time for Memorial Day weekend and the start of grilling season,” said Jeff Gaunt, marketing director for BAR-S Foods Co., manufacturer of the hot dogs. “We’ve spent a lot of time developing the perfect, high-quality frank that kicks the flavor to a whole new level, and we believe we have a product that embodies the Slater’s 50/50 brand perfectly.”

There are four franks per pack, which retails between $5.99-$6.99 per package.
