Living in Poughkeepsie, there are many references to foxes throughout a number of local businesses, mainly because of Marist College Red Foxes. The Foxhole Deli, however, derives its name from military tactics.

Merriam-Webster defines "foxhole" as "a pit dug usually hastily for individual cover from enemy fire." The term rose in popularity towards the end of World War I. Though trenches and in-ground fortifications have been prominent throughout military history, the first recorded use of the term "foxhole" was in a US army report from 1918 describing German soldiers building "a hole in the ground sufficient to give one or two soldiers."
