Delaware North Companies Sportservice to enhance fan experience at CenturyLink Field

RENTON, Wash. - The Seattle Seahawks, Sounders FC and First & Goal Inc. (FGI) announced today the selection of Delaware North Companies Sportservice, a global leader in sports hospitality, as the new exclusive food and beverage services provider at CenturyLink Field, CenturyLink Field Event Center and the WaMu Theater.
 
Under a multi-year agreement, Sportservice will manage and operate all general concessions and premium dining at the stadium, home to the Seattle Seahawks (NFL), Seattle Sounders FC (MLS) and numerous concerts and consumer shows.
 
"We look forward to many new and expanded concessions offerings for our fans in the concourses, club level and suites" said Seahawks, Sounders FC and FGI president Peter McLoughlin.
FGI and Sportservice will work together to develop new hospitality amenities and create destination spaces to allow for new food concepts and increase the number of portable concession carts throughout the facility.
 
"We are excited about our new partnership with the Seattle Seahawks, Seattle Sounders FC and the great FGI organization and are committed to bringing a new level of food and service to some of the best fans in sports," said Rick Abramson, president of Delaware North Companies Sportservice.

As one of the oldest and most respected names in sports food service and hospitality, we are looking forward to improving the overall fan experience with great guest service, innovative cuisine and new menu items bringing that special local flavor to CenturyLink Field."
 
The company will take over operations at the stadium in early 2013 in preparation for the upcoming Sounders FC season. At that time Sportservice will also begin operating the event center and theater.
 
Sportservice has developed a strong reputation in the industry for its culinary expertise and innovative concessions concepts. The company's chefs are mentored by Delaware North Corporate Chef Roland Henin, a highly regarded certified master chef who also happens to be a Seattle resident.

Seahawks edge Cardinals in Stadium Food Power Rankings

The Seattle Seahawks' CenturyLink Field was recently featured in The Daily Meal's "Stadium Food Power Rankings", pitting Levy Restaurants stadium grub up against the concessions of Rojo Hospitality Group, who run the gameday food operations at the Arizona Cardinals' University of Phoenix Stadium.

The stadium's unique and fan-favorite foods, health-conscience and allergy-friendly selections, and facility sustainability efforts were compared side-by-side, and Seattle's CenturyLink Field edged out their Arizona counterparts.

"Close call, West Coasters, but this week’s win is going to Seattle," Tyler Sullivan, assistant editor at The Daily Meal wrote. "From the mouthwatering food to the emphasis on everything that's local and natural, we are awarding the Seahawks a food win (and hoping the game outcome reflects our predictions). Will we be right? Find out Sunday at 4:25 p.m."
