Oakland A's Open Season with Ovations Food Services as New Concessionaire

Ovations Food Services, a subsidiary of Comcast-Spectacor, has been selected by the Oakland A's as the team's new provider of food and beverage concessions at O.co Coliseum.

Ovations, which plans to design more efficient kitchen layouts and implement custom concepts at the Coliseum, will introduce its "Everything Fresh" program to A's fans this season, including a special focus on using locally-sourced ingredients and a rotating seasonal menu.

"Ovations has established a national reputation for providing excellent service to more than 135 facilities throughout the United States and Canada," said Michael Crowley, president of the Athletics. "We are particularly pleased to partner with a company with many local associations. In fact, two of the company's executives, both residents of Alameda County, have been season ticket holders for many years. We think our fans will immediately see the changes provided by Ovations, which will only enhance their experience at the ballpark."
