| June 30, 2016 | 0 Comments

Syracuse, New York-based Hofmann Brands, which is comprised of the Hofmann Sausage Company, Hofmann Hots and Handwich brands, opened its corporate office at 16 E. Lombard St. in Downtown.

“Baltimore is undergoing a major renaissance and that attracted us as a company to this city,” said Reginald Bailey, CEO of Hofmann Brands, in a press release. “Hofmann Brands has a deeply-rooted tradition as a caretaker of the community it grew up in, and we wanted to bring that same love to a city that, like Syracuse, has a rich history. By opening a corporate office here in Baltimore, we’re planting seeds for future growth.”

Hofmann Brands selected Baltimore as the location of its new corporate office for the city’s ideal mid-Atlantic locale, thriving business climate and inspiring community spirit, according to the release. Hofmann Brands will use its new office as a platform to grow the brand from its roots in Syracuse into a national and international household brand.

Investors of Hofmann include Syracuse Basketball Coach Jim Boheim, Phil Romano of Fudruckers and Macaroni Grill, Oneida Indian Nation, and Hall of Fame Quarterback Roger Staubach, who played college football in Annapolis for Navy. Bailey said to that Staubach is excited about the Maryland connection with the new office.

Hofmann Brands’ 3,200 sq. ft. space is part of the former Baltimore Comedy Factory location and Bailey told they immediately knew it was the right space after taking a look. Bailey said the Hofmann team loves being in the heart of Downtown and eating at different restaurants each day. He said they will have nine Baltimore-based employees in sales, marketing and finance, with plans for growth.

They also have food trucks, which will be seen around the city, serving Hofmann products.

Hofmann’s products, which include German Franks, Snappy Grillers, Handwiches, and a spicy mustard, are now available at Wegmans and Harris Teeter, including Maryland, DC and Northern Virginia locations. They plan to introduce even more products to additional mid-Atlantic markets in the near future.

Hofmann products are also served at restaurants, sports venues, and universities in the area. The company is hoping to form partnerships with the Orioles and Ravens in the future.
