PHILADELPHIA, PA (March 14, 2018) –Before the first pitch is thrown on Opening Day, baseball fans will be delighted to know a new lineup of distinctive and flavorful menu options awaits them at their favorite ballpark.
Aramark (NYSE: ARMK), the award-winning food and beverage partner of eight Major League Baseball teams, spent the off-season reviewing consumer insights and exploring local food trends, to identify the foods and flavors fans are craving. From tasty taco trios, to reimagined franks and sandwiches, and even more vegan and vegetarian options, Aramark is offering elevated ballpark menus that are sure to be a hit with fans
“Food has become a major player in the fan experience and that increased role is a motivating factor for us to continue to enhance our menu offerings each season,” said Carl Mittleman, President of Aramark’s Sports and Entertainment division. ”Ballpark food has come a long way. In addition to doing the classics well, we’re focusing on driving quality, increasing healthy options, making it convenient and providing personalization for our guests.”
Here are some of the new menu items Aramark is introducing for the 2018 season:
Taco Trio Takeover
The only thing better than one taco is three! This season, Aramark will serve signature taco trios at each of its partner ballparks.
Sandwiches and Franks
Vegan’Acho Nacho at Rogers Centre
Vegan and Vegetarian Eats
As part of Aramark’s Healthy for Life 20 By 20 initiative, and ongoing commitment to providing fans with greater variety, choice and access to healthier menu options, Aramark continues to expand vegan and vegetarian options in the ballparks it serves.
In addition to the great tasting food available at concession stands, Aramark is bringing the convenience of cashless transactions to the fans in their seats. Believed to be an MLB first, many in-seat vendors, or hawkers, at each of the ballparks Aramark serves will accept credit cards for select menu items being sold.

One of the defining values that inspired my return to Aramark in October was the Company’s selfless passion for serving others. Never has this passion been more evident than it is today. In order to safeguard our employees and position the Company for long-term, future success, I have had to make some incredibly hard, near-term decisions that will enable us to protect the maximum number of jobs and allow our valued team members to return to Aramark as quickly as possible.
