Charlotte's JJ's Red Hots to hit college campuses

JJ's Red Hots, with locations in Dilworth and Ballantyne, announced on Tuesday a new business partnership that will bring the hotdogs to college campuses.

JJ's is partnering with Chartwells Higher Education, a division of Compass Group North America, to get its food served at higher education institutions. Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton will be the first spot to get the hotdogs, as well as a customized menu and a special FAU DOG designed for the university.

“The high energy of a university setting is right in our sweet spot, because we like to have fun with our brand and we don’t take ourselves too seriously," JJ's owner Jonathan Luther said in a statement.

JJ’s Red Hots was honored in May for making Fast Casual’s list of the year’s top 50 restaurants, the only Charlotte-area brand to receive recognition. It finished 43rd on the publication’s annual “Top 100 Movers & Shakers” list.

Another good local place selling out and going corporate. File them in the "used to be good" category along with The Penguin, Toast, Big/Bad Daddy's etc.

Yeah. How dare a business owner want to expand and make money. He should stay small and only cater to hipsters. Give me a break.

Yes. People do still eat hot dogs. If you don't like them, though, I guess no one should eat them, right?

Did you really just click, read and comment on an article about hot dogs just to ask if anyone still eats hot dogs?

What an absurd comment: Another good local place selling out and going corporate". This country is built on the fact that it's people are free and able to pursue success. I for one, stand up and cheer for a small business owner who has the guts to risk it all and take a shot at the American Dream. To the poster who made that comment: What have you accomplished in your life so far? if you don't like the American Dream, why don't you leave? Go to a country that doesn't allow you to take yourslf to new heights and pursue happiness. I will pay for your one way ticket!
