This summer Abeles & Heymann (A&H) debuted a new look – in bold Red, White and Blue patriotic colors with an iconic label – in addition to a new line-up of great products just in time for grilling and baseball season. While the packaging was revamped, the recipes and quality standards have not changed since 1954. A&H hot dog and deli meat fans will still enjoy the same good, old-fashioned New York butcher shop goodness they’ve come to know and trust. A&H is consistently voted as the “Top Dog” in America, because they are produced in small batches, use only premium quality ingredients and are slow cooked to perfection.

Abeles & Heymann (A&H) debuted a new lookIn addition, A&H offers healthier choices for consumers, with the first-ever refrigerated kosher uncured, no nitrates or nitrites added all-beef hot dogs, as well as lower sodium and reduced fat content hot dogs.

“Years of development and refinement have made this into the best kosher uncured hot dog on the market today. Now, our bold new packaging reflects our commitment to making the BEST hot dog in America!”

About Abeles & Heymann

In 1954, Oscar Abeles and Leopold Heymann opened Abeles & Heymann butcher store in Washington Heights, N.Y. In 1997 Seth Leavitt and his attorney cousin, David Flamholz, bought out Mr. Heymann and his wife, Sophie. Heymann, the only surviving partner, stayed for more than a year to teach the two young men how to make a hot dog among other things, in the Bronx facility. Since then the family-run company moved to a state-of-the art facility in New Jersey, and has seen an over tenfold increase in sales. To grow the business even further, Abeles & Heymann partnered with the manufacturing arm of an Israeli Kibbutz, (Maadany Yehiam, makers of the Hod Golan line of turkey products) and presently produces more than 1,000 tons of quality glatt kosher deli a year.

“All Abeles & Heymann products are certified glatt kosher by the Orthodox Union (OU), Kehillah Kashrus and Rabbi Yecheil Babad. For additional information about Abeles & Heymann or to use their store locator, visit, and
