Today, Scotiabank Centre announced Centerplate as the new concessions services partner, supporting the facility’s vision for an enhanced customer experience.
“We’re thrilled to partner with Centerplate as we take another exciting step in the evolution of our community facility,” said Scott Ferguson, president and CEO of Trade Centre Limited, the Crown Corporation that manages Scotiabank Centre. “We’re proud to be working with a partner who will help us meet the changing needs of our customers and pave the way for an exciting future.”
As the provider of food and beverage services, Centerplate will introduce new options, including local food and healthy alternatives while continuing to provide traditional favourites. The transition will take place throughout the summer in preparation for the launch of the fall events season in September.
“Centerplate is extremely excited to partner with leaders, guests, and local organizations to enhance the guest experience at Scotiabank Centre,” said Chris Verros, President and CEO of Centerplate. “We are energized by the community commitment and vision of the venue’s leadership, and look forward to making it better to be there.”
The announcement follows a competitive procurement process for Scotiabank Centre’s food and beverage needs that evaluated prospective partners’ approach to customer satisfaction, business value, facility renewal and commitment to the facility’s future success.
In addition to a renovated concessions area, Scotiabank Centre will unveil a series of facility enhancements in the fall including new seats as well as renovated and expanded washroom facilities – all based on customer input.
As the Atlantic region’s premiere sports and entertainment venue, Scotiabank Centre has a rich history of successful events. Having hosted the world’s top performers, homegrown talent, best in class athletes and many performers in between, Scotiabank Centre has been a source for community vibrancy and pride for over 37 years.
