Chicago hot dog rolls

Help!
Any Roadfoodies know where I can buy Chicago style hot dog rolls? I mean the side split, poppy seed kind. I always wanted to try them as they sound delish.
We live north of Boston in the land of roast beef sandwiches, so a trip West is out, at least for now.
Thanks in advance.

    Three Chicago companies make the poppy seed hot dog buns for commercial foodservice: Alpha Baking Company aka S.Rosen/MaryAnn, Gonnella Baking Company, and Turano Baking Company. Alpha sells the buns in some Chicago and Wisconsin retail food stores. The Chicago based Sam's Club sells them. Finding them outside the Chicago/Milwaukee area will be extremely difficult at the retail level, if not impossible.

    Select Sysco sells them here in Florida, probably are available through them any place they have an outlet!

    Vienna Beef has their poppy seed buns made for them by one of two Chicago bakeries: Alpha or Gonnella. I'm not sure which one. Their food service buns are par baked and sold in a steamer box. When fresh, their shelf life is only seven days. Freezing them extends the shelf life, but once thawed, their on the clock and must be used within a matter of days. Hot dog stands outside Chicago and Milwaukee can purchase the food service buns frozen from Sysco or Vienna Beef. Vienna's retail buns(those shipped in the kits) are completely baked and steaming will turn them into sponges. I believe the VB dogs and buns in the kits, shipped to the public are frozen. Once thawed, the buns are ready to serve.
