CHICAGO - The Chicago Cubs and Vienna Beef have partnered to introduce Wrigley Field Smokies, a co-branded smoked sausage that will invoke special memories for fans who remember the aroma of smoked sausages being grilled at the ballpark decades ago.
Wrigley Field Smokies are made using only premium, fresh, domestic beef and beef trimmings with a secret blend of seasonings. The six-inch sausage is hickory-smoked and includes no fillers, artificial colors or flavorings.
Levy Restaurants will serve Wrigley Field Smokies at the newly re-branded grill cart near Aisle 108 in Wrigley Field's main concourse for $7 per sandwich (equivalent to Vienna Beef's Polish Sausage offering) beginning this homestand and continuing throughout the season. Wrigley Field Smokies will be available in retail locations throughout Chicagoland within the next several weeks - just in time for the Fourth of July holiday.
"We are very excited to team up with the Chicago Cubs to 'bring back the Smokies' to Wrigley Field this year. For decades, fans enjoyed great-tasting smoked sausages while they took in a game at the ballpark. They'll be able to savor that smoky flavor once again both at Wrigley Field and at home from their local supermarket," said Vienna Beef Chairman Jim Bodman.
"Our fans have been asking if we'd bring smoked sausages back to Wrigley Field for years," added Chicago Cubs Vice President of Sales and Partnerships Colin Faulkner. "We're thrilled to collaborate with Vienna Beef to bring back a piece of our history in a new and delicious way."
Vienna Beef, the Official Hot Dog of Wrigley Field, will celebrate Hot Dog Month in July with fans through promotions and giveaways at the ballpark.
