Kosher cold cuts/hot dogs?

Here in Columbus, Ohio the selection of kosher cold cuts & hot dogs is pretty limited. We used to have a kosher butcher/specialty store but that went out of business. Giant Eagle and Kroger carry some very limited kosher cold cuts, which are OK, not great. Besides Meal Mart, which is cheap, but not satisfactory, who else makes kosher salami, bologna and hot dogs? Would like to speak with them about carrying more of a variety. We used to be able to get big (2 lb) Best or Sinai salamis and dry them out ourselves, but they have gone the way of the horse & buggy. Any suggestions? Thanks!

      I agree- A&H products are great. My husband likes the spicy hot dogs. The company makes a wide variety of products, so maybe you're better off giving specific product recommendations to the supermarkets.

        Another vote for A&H. ships some A&H products including the Chipotle Pepper franks, although they don't list the regular franks.

      1. Jeff's Gourmet Sausage will ship from L.A.

        1. I've enjoyed both A&H and Neshama. Both are available from various websites for shipping, but the shipping is often as much again as the food! I think you would be better off trying to get a local establishment to stock them instead.
