Little Caesars Arena

2645 Woodward Avenue, Detroit, MI 48201

After serving Detroit Tigers fans for more than 85 years, Delaware North Sportservice is proud to be the food, beverage and retail partner for Little Caesars Arena. The state-of-the-art arena, which will open in September 2017, will be the home of the National Hockey League’s Detroit Red Wings and the National Basketball Association’s Detroit Pistons and will also be the centerpiece of The District Detroit entertainment district currently under development.

Delaware North Sportservice will provide a full accompaniment of services to the 20,000-seat venue, including concessions at more than 50 fixed and portable stands, premium dining services in five club areas, 24 loge boxes, 62 suites and two rows of one-of-a-kind gondola seating that hang from the arena’s ceiling. The retail component will be anchored by a 9,500-square-foot team store and a 19,000-square-foot District Market and restaurant and bar outside of the arena, which will be open daily.

Food and beverage offerings at Little Caesars Arena will be varied and anything but generic. Concessions will include fresh fruit and greens at the District Market Express; hand-breaded chicken and fresh cut fries at The Coop; locally-based brewery offerings and craft cocktails with hand-carved sandwiches at 1701 Pub; and regionally themed favorites like coney dogs and shawarma at Detroit House, along with other Detroit-area favorites, including Dearborn Sausages and Better Made Potato Chips.

Little Caesars Arena will be the focal point of the District Detroit, which is one of the largest sports and entertainment developments in the country, and will play host to a variety of concerts and special events. Located in the heart of Detroit, this 50-block, mixed-use development led by the Ilitch family unites six world-class theaters, five neighborhoods and three professional sports venues in one vibrant, walkable destination for people who want to live, work and play in an exciting urban environment.
