Upscale Foodservice Operations Help Stadiums Score Big

Mirroring the restaurant industry, sports and entertainment venue operators, managers and promoters continue to aggressively upgrade their food selection and quality, make their menus more flexible and enhance customer service to improve the fan experience. This has led to higher-quality concessions and higher-end suite and club seat foodservice programs, transforming a growing number of major venues into food destinations.

Q&A: Bill Lehn, Director of Food and Beverage, and Scott Kammerer, Culinary Director, Parkview Field, Ft. Wayne, Ind.

A minor league baseball park may not seem like a typical culinary destination, but for fans of the Ft. Wayne TinCaps, the food at Parkview Field is a definite draw. Stadium Journey magazine ranked the Indiana venue as the number-one minor league facility and in the top 10 for an event experience among stadiums overall. Food and beverage options weighed heavily in the overall score.
