world's greatest sausage sandwich.

Jody Maroni, the Venice Beach Sausage King, has

opened inside the popular Camarillo Premium Outlet Mall food court, serving up his award-winning family recipe sausage sandwiches to hungry shoppers.

The 600 sq. ft. Jody Maroni's, features a full slate of Gourmet Sausage Sandwiches, Hot Dogs, Fries and Charbroiled Hamburgers as well as its patented Breakfast Burritos with Andouille sausage.

"Sausage is life and sustenance," observed the iconoclastic Jody Maroni, who loves to shop for red and gold shoes, his trademark colors "I think the people shopping here recognize a premium product and quality is something that I live by."

Jody Maroni sausages are known for their piquant flavors and lean nutritional profiles. Jody gained fame for pioneering the gourmet sausage category with such flavors as Yucatan Chicken and Turkey with Cilantro, Tequila Chicken with Jalapenos, Smoked Chicken Apple and more than a dozen other poultry and pork flavors. He also introduced the Cajun Dog - a chicken hot dog with a great smoky and spicy flavor.

Jody's Gourmet Sausage Sandwich is grilled and served on a fresh-baked onion roll and smothered in onions an peppers. The fries are natural skin-on; the all-beef hot dogs snap when you bite into them; the 1/3 lb. Burgers are char-broiled and the lemonade is fresh-squeezed.

The Jody Maroni concept currently can be found in airports, malls, stadiums, arenas and convention centers stretching from California to New York with locations on Venice Beach, Universal CityWalk, The Block at Orange, Camarillo, Howard Hughes Promenade, Cabazon, Long Beach State University, Ontario Mills, South Bay Galleria, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Minneapolis, Detroit, Cleveland, Houston, and Indianapolis. His sausage is also sold at Smart and Final warehouses.

Noted Mr. Maroni (nee Jordan Monkarsh), "We are primed and ready to hawk our sausage sandwiches everywhere where people gather, are having a good time and are hungry."

Jody Maroni is considered a pioneer in the low fat, gourmet sausage market. The Jody Maroni's Sausage Kingdom menu includes such flavors as Yucatan Chicken & Turkey with Cilantro, Tequila Chicken with Jalapenos, Smoked Chicken Apple, Smoked Chicken Andouille, Hot Italian, Sweet Italian, Louisiana Hot Links and Bratwurst. Dubbed "the ultimate dog" and "sausage of the gods" by some of the country's most discerning publications, many of Maroni's sausages (or "haut dogs") are made without any nitrates or preservatives and are considered lower in fat than traditional sausage.

Maroni originally gained notice for his evangelical, street-hawking style, luring Venice Beach denizens to his grill with boastful claims of making the "world's greatest sausage sandwich." His unique sausage flavors combined with his outrageous sales technique, led Jody Maroni's to become one of the most highly acclaimed sausage makers in the country. Zagat's Restaurant Guide, for instance, named Jody Maroni's one of the top five Hot Dog Stands in the U.S. in its America's Best Meal Deals. Jody Maroni sausage sandwiches are also served at Staples Center where Jody Maroni's sponsors the Los Angeles Kings. Smart & Final carries Jody Maroni Gourmet Sausage in its freezer section. In 1998, Rizzoli published The Jody Maroni's Sausage Kingdom Cookbook. For more information, call 1-800-HAUTDOG or log onto
