Angels Pick Legends Hospitality To Run Ballpark Foodservice In Multiyear Deal
The Angels have selected Legends Hospitality to run all aspects of foodservice at Angel Stadium, according to industry sources. The agreement, running more than three years, covers general concessions and premium dining but does not include merchandise, sources said. The deal also covers Tempe's Diablo Stadium, where the Angels hold Spring Training annually. AEG VP/Communications Michael Roth confirmed AEG Merchandising will continue running the ballpark’s retail operation, a deal that runs through '16. Legends replaces Aramark as the team’s food provider and will start making the transition after the regular season ends next week. Angel Stadium, built in '66 and renovated in '96, has 45,050 seats, 78 suites and 5,075 club seats. The city of Anaheim recently extended the Angels' escape clause at Angel Stadium as discussions continue on a ballpark lease extension.
