Located near our Comfort Inn and Suites Rochelle Illinois hotel is Sara Lee. One product they sell is BallPark Franks. They are absolutely the best! Yeah it may be cold, it may be snowing, it may even be raining, but what is more fun than eating a great hot dog grilled out doors any time of the year. I think that I have been eating them since they started selling them in 1957.
According to legend Sara Lee was a small child when her dad decided to name a line of cheese cakes after his daughter. You know the rest of the story. They grew into one of the largest food distributors in the USA. Some of their products and brands along with the hotdogs include Senseo , Pickwick, Kiwi, Jimmy Dean and Hillshire Farms.
Sara Lee is a huge company with a presence in the city of Rochelle Illinois. They are probably the largest employer in the area. As of December the 7th 2009 their stock price is up and priced at $12.31 per share.
