Centerplate operates in 250 North American sports, entertainment and convention venues, including six of the top 10 most active convention centers following its 2010 merger with Boston Culinary Group. It also bolstered its management team with the promotion of EVP Chris Verros to COO and Marketing Leader Bob Pascal to CMO, and launched a new hospitality division, Centerplate Stir.
Centerplate Stir launched a series of brand concepts, including Hamburg & Frites (gourmet burgers), Tortugas Voladoras (Mexican sandwiches), Apizza (pizza) and La Creperie (authentic Parisian crepes).
Among highlights in the field in the past year are major deals with the University of Notre Dame for concessions at three campus sports facilities, including the 80,000-seat football stadium, with the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, the nation's sixth largest convention facility, and with the new Santa Clara Stadium, scheduled to become the home of the NFL's San Francisco 49ers in 2015.
