Food and Beverage Services
The taste of excellence
Passion. Innovation. Value. An unwavering commitment to the highest possible level of training for our culinary and service teams. These are the qualities that drive our Sportservice food and beverage service team’s philosophy. At every table, every concession stand and every food cart – on every plate we serve – we strive for excellence in preparation, presentation and variety.
From baseball to black-tie balls, we’ve gathered culinary talent that rivals the world’s best. With jurisdiction over some of the busiest and most famous kitchens around, our chefs are free to create innovative culinary masterpieces that keep our guests hungry for more. In addition:
- Our Culinary & Hospitality Council oversees the company’s culinary initiatives. Members of the council bring together the best practices from all of our subsidiaries and share the latest trends, opportunities and innovations in the food and beverage service industry.
- Our annual Food & Beverage Summit brings more than 400 of our managers, directors and chefs (in addition to 150-plus vendors) together for a three-day conference focusing on best practices, educational seminars and new products and equipment. The summit also showcases a trade show that fills the main exhibit hall of the Buffalo Convention Center and an “Iron Chef” competition between our best chefs.
- Delaware North Companies Sportservice entered into an exclusive, one-of-a-kind partnership with the Food Network® and all retail, food and beverage service retail concepts developed as a result of the partnership will carry the Food Network® brand.
Sportservice recently celebrated its 10th anniversary as the exclusive food service provider at the Little League World Series.
