The new concessions partnership will serve all of Arizona’s competition facilities. Aramark is an industry leader in the concessions operations that serve 29 professional sports franchises in five different leagues in addition to over 90 different colleges and universities. This expertise will enhance the service at all UArizona sports venues while prioritizing food and beverage quality, efficiency, safety and enjoyment for fans at home events.
“Our athletics department remains focused on providing a first-class experience at all of our venues as we begin to welcome fans back to the stands,” said University of Arizona VP and Director of Athletics Dave Heeke. “This new partnership with Aramark for concessions service will improve this important element of our fan experience and enhance the overall atmosphere for our loyal supporters coming to cheer on the Wildcats in person.”
Aramark will expand cashless payment options, including credit cards, debit cards, Apple Pay and Google Pay while increasing the number of points of sale throughout stadiums. Concession locations will also begin to feature food, snacks, beverages, wine and beer in the same locations for expedited service as well as new and improved-quality menu items.
“We are proud to partner with the University of Arizona to enhance its world-class athletics program through gameday experiences that showcase Aramark’s commitment to hospitality and passion for service,” said Alison Birdwell, Aramark president and CEO of sports and entertainment.
