The most immediate change Fresno Grizzlies fans will notice with the transition is an improved and streamlined point of sale system that should reduce lines and wait times, according to a team news release.
“With everything we do, from promotions to concessions, we always ask ourselves how it can make the fan experience better. Food and beverage is often the first thing a Grizzlies fan experiences when they’re at Chukchansi Park,” said Fresno Grizzlies General Manager Derek Franks. “PSC has an outstanding track record and reputation nationally; and our fans will immediately notice greater value for their dollar than in the past.”
The Grizzlies front office plans to work with PSC to develop new food items that will be unveiled closer to the April 6 opening day. Popular in-park offerings, including taco trucks, will remain.
“We have already begun to work with the Grizzlies staff to implement some significant improvements to the food and beverage experience at the ballpark,” said Tom Dickson, CEO of PSC. “At PSC, we are dedicated to delivering an exceptional experience to all of the guests and we are excited to bring many improvements to the fans in Fresno.”
The on-site general manager for PSC, overseeing all food, beverage and catering needs for the Grizzlies will be veteran Minor League Baseball operator Pat Day. Day has enjoyed a long career working on both the baseball and hospitality ends of the business, running successful franchises in Lansing, Michigan, Montgomery, Alabama and most recently in New Britain, Connecticut.
PSC has the most accounts in Minor League Baseball with 29 teams and three spring training facilities.
