Gillette Stadium Revamps Concessions to Offer Healthier Options

Beginning this month, Gillette Stadium will offer healthier choices and new food items at its 38 concession stands.

Those attending events at Gillette Stadium this month will notice new looks and menus at the concession stands around the facility.

Beginning in August, the stadium's 38 revamped and rebranded permanent concessions stands will be introducing new menu items and additional healthy options.

While stadium favorites like Italian sausages and Papa Gino’s pizza remain on the menu, offerings like house-smoked beef brisket and Buffalo wings will greet guests at newly rebranded concessions locations like “Smokehouse Grill” and “Tenders & Wings.”

An expanded menu of healthy and vegetarian selections will also appear at new “Market Fresh Deli” locations, including freshly-prepared salads, wraps and fresh fruit.

The menus will appear on newly-installed digital displays and upgraded overhead signage throughout the stadium’s concourses will help guests find their game day craving.

“We’re pleased with the upgrades,” said James Nolan, Gillette Stadium Senior Vice President of Operations, Administration and Finance. “We think the menus reflect the changing taste of our guests. The new organization of the concessions stands is more efficient and the new signage and menu boards are easier to see and read. All in all, it’s a huge upgrade to our concessions offerings and an added value for our guests.”

Since opening in 2002, Gillette Stadium has implemented upgrades each year to enhance the fan experience. These have included the addition of new high definition video boards – among  the largest in the NFL – in 2010 and the unveiling of the Putnam Club in 2011.

Perhaps a culinary student and/or internship program with a tie-in to either 1) http://www.JWU.edu - Johnson & Wales University or 2) http://www.CIAChef.edu - The Culinary Institute of America. Setting up a small-medium chef-in-view kitchen, with special menu items that change daily, offering vegetarian dishes as well. Special orders by customers welcome. So get creative!
