Eagles, Aramark Unveil New Menu
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The Philadelphia Eagles and Aramark, the team’s food and beverage and facilities services partner, unveiled their new menu today, as well as enhancements to the food and beverage experience at Lincoln Financial Field. The improvements include new food concepts, new menu items and expanded offerings from local celebrity chef partner, Marc Vetri.
When fans enter the stadium, they will find more point of sale locations for faster service, dynamic digital menu boards that improve menu visibility and ease of ordering, and increased cooking capabilities in several concessions stands, providing an opportunity to serve the most popular items in more locations.
“We are continually exploring new menu items and concepts to enhance the game day experience for Eagles fans,” said Carl Mittleman, president of Aramark’s Sports & Entertainment division. “This year’s combination of local celebrity chefs and great-tasting sandwiches from Mike Quick and Harold Carmichael, make Lincoln Financial Field a premiere destination for hungry NFL fans.”
A Tribute to Eagles Greats, Quick and Carmichael
Eagles Legends Mike Quick and Harold Carmichael were two of the best players in franchise history, and now they’re sharing their hunger for the game with ‘Quick & Carmichael BBQ,’ featuring their vision of the perfect barbecue sandwich. Here, fans can choose between The Quick (black cherry smoked pulled pork with house made slaw on a potato roll) or The Carmichael (maple sugar smoked pulled chicken with house made slaw on a potato roll), or if they don’t want to play favorites, a combination of the two, The Quick & Carmichael (black cherry smoked pulled pork, maple sugar smoked pulled chicken, topped with house made slaw, on a potato roll). Each sandwich is available with choice of Kansas City Style Barbecue Sauce or Carolina Vinegar Barbecue Sauce.
