Continuing the trend of a changing fan experience at the ballpark, the Miami Marlins have unveiled new local fare for concessions throughout Marlins Park. This comes after the team announced several ballpark upgrades for 2019, including new social spaces and a revamped club area.
The new local food partners for the 2019 season include Miami’s Best Pizza, PINCHO, Novecento, SuViche and two concepts by Jose Andres’ ThinkFoodGroup – Butterfly Tacos y Tortas and La Pepa.
“It is important for us to continue to invest in creating a first-class fan experience at Marlins Park, and the addition of these well-respected partners with great Miami stories is another essential step in that process,” said Marlins CEO Derek Jeter. “The re-imagined concessions, representative of our community’s rich culinary scene, as well as the enhanced premium experience in The Club presented by DEX Imaging will offer our guests fresh and unique experiences.”
In 2019, Marlins Park will serve as the exclusive South Florida professional sports venue to host La Pepa, Butterfly Tacos y Tortas, Novecento and Miami’s Best Pizza. The ballpark will also showcase unique menu items and activations via new partnerships with PINCHO and SuViche.
“As we continue to look for ways to impact and enhance the fan experience at Marlins Park, we sought a dining experience authentic to Miami with brands who share our same commitment to the South Florida community,” said Marlins President of Business Operations Chip Bowers. “We are elevating the food and beverage experience to feature a diverse array of concepts that are reflective of our ever-evolving community. Fans will notice their feedback was heard and will see an increase in the quality and variety of flavors, concepts, and food and beverage-centric experiences available to them throughout the ballpark.”
The five new partner brand concession locations for 2019 are part of a full re-concept and reposition of the Promenade Level food and beverage experience by the Marlins and hospitality partner Levy. The new program, based on fan feedback and industry leading practices, will feature new menu items and stand designs inspired by the community for ballpark favorites as well as other new specialty concepts, including a rotating feature location for test menus by Levy and through limited-time partnerships with guest chefs and local restaurants. In addition, Marlins members and their guests located in The Club presented by DEX Imaging will have exclusive access to an interactive chef experience in the expanded and new look club and an elevated in-seat dining and drink service as part of new industry standard for premium seating.
The new specialty concepts within the re-imagined Marlins Park food and beverage experience are positioned to complement the recently announced 3-o-5 Menu, a new food and beverage menu option for all Marlins home games. The 3-o-5 Menu will feature eight core ballpark favorites at a new introductory price of either $3 or $5. Larger value-sized options such as bottomless popcorn and soda will also be available for select items featured on the 3-o-5 Menu.
