In Kansas City, where BBQ is king, Aramark stakes its reputation on the new K.C. “Chiefs Steak” at Arrowhead Stadium. The $11 sandwich is filled with house-smoked burnt ends, grilled onions and peppers, fried onions and provolone.

The barbecue theme continues in Philadelphia, Aramark’s hometown. The 2 Minute Warning Brisket Sandwich, made of slow-braised brisket, homemade bacon mayo and crumbled blue cheese, sells for $9.50 at Lincoln Financial Field.
Elsewhere, Aramark has expanded its themed hot dog and sausage program to include the Buffalo Chicken Sausage ($8) at Heinz Field, the Backyard Dog ($6.25) at M&T Bank Stadium and the Pulled Pork Foot Long ($10) at Paul Brown Stadium.

In Cleveland, Aramark added Chris Hodgson to its local chef roster at FirstEnergy Stadium, joining Michael Symon, Rocco Whalen and Jonathon Sawyer.

Symon, of “Iron Chef” fame, has added two flavors of loaded milkshakes to a stand on the club level. One contains chocolate ice cream with espresso and Frangelico. The second is a vanilla bean apple pie with bourbon. They sell for $10.

On the retail side, Aramark has upgraded its operations in Houston and Kansas City. At Reliant Stadium, Aramark invested about $200,000 to convert an old branded bar in the north end zone into a 2,600-square-foot Texans team store.

It is a temporary location with no roof cover and portable walls and fixtures that can be taken down for the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, the stadium’s co-tenant, said Carl Mittleman, Aramark’s Denver-based regional vice president.

The inspiration came from a similar layout of a pro shop at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, he said.

At Arrowhead, Aramark opened a ’47 Brand store on the club level showcasing actress Alyssa Milano’s Touch line of women’s apparel.
