WASHINGTON – Kayem Franks are now the official hot dog of the Washington Nationals and Nationals Park, as a result of a new sponsorship and licensing agreement. Kayem Foods Inc. has introduced new products and enhanced others already offered during Washington Nationals home games as part of the agreement.
