How to menu craveable ballpark fare
How-To & Culinary
All ballparks have that one craveable menu item sports fans flock to the concessions to try. But these large venues aren’t the only ones who can benefit. Independent restaurants and fast-casual establishments can replicate ballpark favorites for fans dining out on game day or take advantage of customers throwing their own parties by creating meal kits for them to take home. Using space-saving, labor-reducing equipment, any dining establishment can streamline areas to keep up with game-day traffic.
Similar to food found at a State Fair, ballparks like to serve food that generates hype – and what better way than with intriguing, one-of-a-kind toppings? Store sweet, sour or spicy pickles, homemade slaw, or fruit relishes or salsas in one of our Cold Stations to keep them cold and handy for topping burgers, hot dogs, sandwiches, tacos and even personal pan pizzas.
Use a Topping Warmer or Twin Topping Warmer to keep cheeses, proteins, and heated dessert toppings at the perfect serving temperature throughout the game. Whether for topping chips, fries, or sandwiches, heated cheese is a staple at any event venue. Keep proteins like pulled pork, burnt ends, or barbecue shredded chicken warm and ready to add to hot dogs or loaded fries. And what could be better than a delectable dessert on a hot summer day? Hold staples like fudge and caramel, or mix your own unique flavors like spicy chocolate or honey vanilla sauces.
Our Direct-Pour Touchless Express™ lets stadiums show their community flair – hold house-made sauces and aiolis at-the-ready to top signature sandwiches or dish out dipping sauces. Provide up to five popular bulk condiments using our pouched Touchless Express or our legacy Express™ dispensers, which are perfect for both staff and customer use.
The large crowds that summertime sports generate give venues the chance to express their culinary creativity, partner with local businesses like Wisconsin’s partnership between Sargento and the Milwaukee Brewers, and even duplicate the favorite meal of a team member like the Christian Yelich’s Yeli Melt.
