Following the trend of many minor-league teams this season, the Quad Cities River Bandits are switching concessionaires; in this case, Pro Sports Catering steps in.The Quad Cities River Bandits (Low Class A, Midwest League) announced a new partnership with Professional Sports Catering, who will oversee the club’s food service operation.
“The best part about Professional Sports Catering is that they love what they do -– and they’re really good at it,” said team owner Dave Heller. “PSC is owned and operated by people that work in Minor League Baseball, and because of that their focus is the same as ours -– serving our fans. As a result, our fans can look forward to markedly better food with bigger portions and shorter lines. The result will be an even better experience at the ballpark.”
PSC is owned and operated by Tom Dickson and Sherrie Myers, who also own and operate two Minor League Baseball teams: the Montgomery Biscuits (Class AA; Southern League) and the Lansing Lugnuts (Low Class A, Midwest League). After entering the business of baseball in Lansing in 1996, they quickly grew dissatisfied with their food and beverage providers. They decided to bring the operation in-house in 2001 and saw immediate results, eventually forming PSC in 2005 in order to bring their service to other Minor League Baseball teams. The River Bandits are now the sixth team that is currently working with the full-service food and beverage company, joining a trio of Midwest League neighbors in the Great Lakes Loons (Low Class A, Midwest League), South Bend Silver Hawks (Low Class A, Midwest League)and Lansing, as well as the Savannah Sand Gnats (Low Class A; South Atlantic League
