The El Paso Chihuahuas (Class AAA; Pacific Coast League) have formed a partnership with Professional Sports Catering, which becomes the new food and beverage provider for Southwest University Park. Also included in the partnership is professional soccer’s El Paso Locomotive FC (USL Championship).
“The culinary experience has long been a critically important part of any ballpark visit and the source of many great memories for fans of all ages,” said MountainStar Sports Group President Alan Ledford. “Our organization recognizes our responsibility in this area and is proud to establish this new partnership with PSC to continue to provide guests with the highest quality food and beverage products and extraordinary service.”
PSC will manage gameday food and beverage including concessions, premium areas, the WestStar Club and suites. They will also manage food and beverage service for all non-gameday events at Southwest University Park.
“As we enter our seventh season for baseball at Southwest University Park and the second for soccer, we are pleased to welcome Professional Sports Catering to El Paso,” said Sr. Vice President and Chihuahuas General Manager Brad Taylor. “The social and hospitable nature of our city calls for fun food and beverages to keep the guest experience the best it can be. PSC’s focus on analytics and research will create more options and increased service for our guests.”
“PSC was formed over 10 years ago to deliver a major-league food and beverage experience at the minor- league level,” said Chief Executive Officer and founder of PSC, Tom Dickson. “We are tremendously excited today to announce our partnership with the Chihuahuas and the Locomotive to provide their guests a first- class hospitality experience. We know the bar has been set very high at Southwest University Park, and PSC is committed to reaching and exceeding all guest expectations at the ballpark this summer and for years to come.”
“PSC is an industry leader with creative and progressive leadership that will help both the Chihuahuas and Locomotive continue to meet and exceed our fans’ expectations,” Ledford added.
Currently, PSC services 27 MiLB ballparks, four Spring Training facilities and two Independent League baseball organizations. Of the 27 MiLB teams it currently partners with, 10 are Triple-A teams, including Pacific Coast League members Fresno Grizzlies, Las Vegas Aviators, Oklahoma City Dodgers, Reno Aces and Salt Lake Bees.
Kickoff for El Paso Locomotive FC is March 14 versus Portland Timbers 2 at Southwest University Park. Chihuahuas Opening Day is slated for Tuesday, April 14, 2020 versus the Las Vegas Aviators.
