JJ’s Red Hots Brings its World-Class Hot Dog Brand to Florida Atlantic University

August 18, 2014

JJ’s Red Hots is bringing Florida Atlantic University students a Masters’ Degree in the art of handcrafted Hot Dogs.

The Charlotte-based Premium Hot Dog brand, which was recently honored by Fast Casual as one of 2014’s Top 50 restaurants, opens today on the Boca Raton campus. Earlier this summer, JJ’s announced a partnership with Chartwells Higher Education, a division of Compass Group North America, to put JJ’s Red Hots award-winning brand on college campuses.

“JJ’s is impressive in every aspect of its business and we are thrilled to add them to our portfolio of category leaders,” said Nicole Hatfield, director of brand development with Compass Group North America. “They are a hip brand and their commitment to quality and excellence is unmatched. We are sure they are going to be an immediate hit at Florida Atlantic University.

Until recently, JJ’s had been a well-kept secret, yet highly adored in Charlotte. JJ’s regularly nabs ‘Best Hot Dog in Charlotte’ awards, but at the recent National Restaurant Association Show in Chicago, JJ’s raised some eyebrows when it made Fast Casual’s 2014 Top 100 Movers & Shakers list.
