RS3 to Revamp Concourse Storefronts, Food Options
CEDAR PARK, TX – Ryan Sanders Sports Services (RS3), together with Texas Stars LP, operator of the Cedar Park Center, announced Tuesday a new partnership bringing RS3 on board to serve as the arena’s new food and beverage provider.
“This partnership is going to significantly improve the guest experience when they visit Cedar Park Center,” said Cedar Park Center General Manager and Texas Stars President Rick McLaughlin. “RS3’s renovation of the concourse storefronts, overhaul of the selection and increase in the menu quality will give our customers a greater variety of food and beverage options to choose from when attending an event.”
RS3 has begun construction on the concourse storefronts at Cedar Park Center, bringing in many of the popular food storefronts seen at other RS3 properties. Each destination will feature a different theme and complimentary menu aimed at increasing the overall fan experience. Some of the storefronts include Fairlane’s Diner, Metro Deli, One-Eighty-Three Chophouse, Rojo’s Mexican Hideaway and Texas Smokehouse presented by Smokey Mo’s Bar-B-Q.
With the new storefronts, RS3 is excited to introduce new menu items to elevate the culinary experience throughout the arena. New items exclusive to Cedar Park Center include 18-inch flatbreads, fried alligator bites and a hot Cuban sandwich. RS3 will also carry fan favorites such as the nationally-acclaimed Grilled Cheese Hot Dog. Along with updated food menus, guests will find expanded beer, wine and beverage offerings throughout the venue.
RS3 will also oversee the catering options at premium destinations on the At Home suite level and MillerCoors Club. RS3 Catering has partnered with culinary resources throughout Central Texas to create a fun and event-driven premium program for Cedar Park Center guests, aimed at tapping into the area’s unique flavors and cultural diversity.
“Our vision to combine homegrown hospitality and the pursuit of excellence the Ryan Sanders brand represents together with the diversity of Cedar Park Center was a natural fit,” said RS3 President George King. “We share the Texas Stars’ drive to deliver on the mission of bringing innovative and creative guest service that adds value to their wide array of events.”
Foodservice veteran Brian Candler will serve as the General Manager of RS3 at Cedar Park Center. He most recently served in the same capacity at Dell Diamond and brings with him over 15 years of experience in the hospitality industry.
The new storefront concepts and food and beverage offerings will be available beginning October 10 when the Texas Stars begin their 2015-16 season at Cedar Park Center.
