Delaware North’s top executives are all directly at the helm of some of the Buffalo-based company’s biggest food moves. Co-CEOs Jerry Jacobs Jr. and Lou Jacobs, along with President Carlos Bernal, have worked with the Green Bay Packers on the culinary direction of their Titletown development district as well as Ilitch Holdings on the District Detroit entertainment zone. Charlie Jacobs has led the food and beverage direction and offerings at The Hub on Causeway, a 1.5-million-square-foot mixed-use development next to the DNC-owned TD Garden in Boston. Sweeny leads data analytics efforts and technology innovations, highlighted by self-checkout kiosks at Comerica Park in Detroit that use color, shape, dimension and other visual features to learn and recognize objects. Delaware North has brought the kiosks to Lambeau Field with plans for even more venues.
