DMV residents can now indulge in some of their favorite Ben’s Chili Bowl recipes from home!
Ben’s Chili Bowl launched a partnership on Friday, June 23 that sees its famous half-smokes and chili available for purchase at grocery chain Giant Food. The products are exclusively available at Giant stores in Washington, D.C., Maryland, Virginia, and Delaware.
“We’ve been blessed to serve our beloved DMV community for nearly 65 years, and in all that time we never expected to sell our products at the retail level,” Ben’s Chili Bowl co-founder Virginia Ali said in a press release.
Favorite products including Ben’s Chili Bowl’s original and spicy half-smokes, its chili con carne, turkey chili, and Ben’s secret chili sauce are available in DMV Giant’s prepared food and hot bar sections.
The original Ben’s Chili Bowl remains a community mainstay on U Street NW, where it’s served Washingtonians for more than 64 years.
“Ben’s Chili Bowl has remained a respected business within our community since 1958 and the opportunity to partner with the brand and expand the Ali family’s legacy was a no-brainer,” Giant Food President Ira Kress said. “We are proud to introduce Ben’s Chili Bowl’s fan-favorite recipes and menu items into our stores, and we are sure they will be a welcomed addition for our customers.”
