Aramark is working with local flavors and hometown chefs this fall at the nine professional football stadiums where it provides foodservice to offer new items that will resonate with customers in each market.
Many of the company’s new items are localized variations of ballpark classics, ranging from hot dogs to nachos and sandwiches.
“Our chefs spent the last off-season working really hard trying what they can to enhance fans’ game experience,” said Chris Culver, vice president of culinary at Philadelphia-based Aramark.
At Lincoln Financial Field, home of the Philadelphia Eagles, Aramark is offering Italian nachos with sausage Bolognese, mozzarella cheese sauce, house-made ricotta and jalapeños. At M&T Bank Stadium, the Baltimore Ravens’ home field, the nachos are topped with crab dip, jack cheese, tomatoes and scallions.
Other nacho variations include:
• Triple meat nachos with chili, pulled chicken, chopped brisket, nacho cheese sauce, pico de gallo, sour cream and guacamole at Arrowhead Stadium, home of the Kansas City Chiefs.
• Barbecue pork nachos with pulled pork, cheesy corn, pit-smoked beans, pickles, red onions and Heinz Field signature barbecue sauce at the home of the Pittsburgh Steelers.
• Chicken Florentine nachos with chicken artichoke Florentine sauce and Parmesan cheese at Paul Brown Stadium, home of the Cincinnati Bengals.
• Buffalo chicken nachos with buffalo chicken, cheese sauce, blue cheese crumbles, celery and blue cheese dressing at Reliant Stadium, home of the Houston Texans.
