Restauranteurs Larry and Mark Levy, whose company Levy Enterprises (LE) "supplies premium concessions" to skyboxes, luxury suites and private clubs in sports arenas around the country, are profiled by Richard Gibson of the WALL STREET JOURNAL. LE's client list, which includes Wrigley Field, Jacobs Field and Arrowhead Stadium, will jump from 14 to 27 "within the next year," and Gibson writes that the "standard" Levy ballpark fare includes "couscous with apricots and currants, not Cracker Jack." LE runs "some of the top dining spots in Chicago," in contrast to its two biggest arena competitors, Aramark Corp. and Sportservice Corp., which are "food-service companies" that also run stadium stands. LE has partnered with Ogden Entertainment, which provides stadium stand fare at LE arenas. Larry Levy sees plenty of "growth possibilities" in sports catering, including college games (WALL STREET JOURNAL, 4/30).
