At any ballgame, food and beverage can be just as an experience as the sport, but missing the action to queue at concessions has traditionally been an issue. Now, fans of Northwood League team, Duluth Huskies, will be able to use their mobile devices to order food and pick it up at their convenience to avoid time-consuming lines.
The new offering is the result of a partnership with FanFood, a concessions mobile ordering technology company, which will provide a mobile ordering platform for the 2020 baseball season.
As part of the seasonal contract, the collegiate summer baseball team will be rolling out FanFood’s mobile ordering platform at two of the concession stands from May to August. Fans attending the games at Wade Stadium will be able to browse menu options from their phones, and order anytime during the game on their phones from their seats. They will be alerted when the orders are ready for express pickup at the specially designated FanFood pickup window.
This new partnership adds Duluth Huskies to FanFood’s existing 80+ venue partners nationwide across 10 different verticals. FanFood has been working with venues of all types and sizes to introduce mobile ordering to their concession stands in an attempt to offer greater convenience for the fans, increase average order size and streamline concession operations by removing the need for a cashier.
“We’ve had lots of experience working with Minor League baseball teams across the country, such as Durham Bulls and Lake Erie Crushers,” said Carson Goodale, CEO and co-founder of FanFood. “We’re really excited to have Duluth Huskies as a new partner and enhance the concessions operations for summer collegiate leagues nationwide.”
FanFood is also offering Duluth Huskies US$500 worth of free candies as part of a limited-time offer for new venue partners before the end of March. Once the team reaches 150 FanFood offers within the first five home games, FanFood will gift an additional US$500 worth of concessions inventory before the end of the season.
