Levy continues to drive focus on the culinary, beverage, design, and technology aspects of the fan experience at Dodger Stadium
CHICAGO AND LOS ANGELES, Nov. 30, 2017 – The Los Angeles Dodgers and hospitality partner Levy will continue building a first-class fan experience at Dodger Stadium through a long-term extension, effective immediately. Levy’s initial engagement at the iconic venue began in 2000 and included all premium and club spaces. Levy’s scope expanded in 2005, assuming full stadium food and beverage including general concessions. The renewed partnership will continue to tap Levy’s team of culinary, technology, analytics, and design experts, who are recognized in the industry for their work creating remarkable guest experiences.
“Working with Levy over the past 17 years, we’ve built on our legacy and firmly established Dodger Stadium as one of the finest fan experience venues in all of professional sports,” said Stan Kasten, Dodger President & CEO. “Levy’s unique experience elevating the country’s iconic venues and events makes them an ideal partner as we look to the future and raise the bar together in providing our fans with the finest experience and choices at Dodger Stadium.”
Partnering with the Dodgers, Levy and E15 have brought their expertise in developing programs and concepts to the team’s master plan for Dodger Stadium. Over the past six years under current ownership, the Dodgers have renovated or added new food and beverage concepts to every seating level, creating signature locations on the Top Deck and Reserve Level, building popular Bullpen Bars, King’s Hawaiian Grill and Tommy Lasorda’s Trattoria at new field level entry plazas and establishing fan favorites such as La Taqueria and Elysian Park Grill. Premium areas such as the dugout club and baseline seats have also been renovated during this six year span.
“Through the years we’ve worked hand-in-hand with the Dodgers to create a hospitality experience that reflects the passion of Dodger fans, the signature flavors of Southern California and the beauty and atmosphere of Dodger Stadium,” said Andy Lansing, President and CEO of Levy. “The extended partnership will bring more design, technology, and analytics resources to the table, along with our already robust culinary team, to give our guests an incredible experience at one of the world’s premier ballparks.”
