January 14, 2014 (Oakland, CA) – Ovations Food Services, a nationally renound food and beverage catering and concessions provider to over 135 public assembly facilities throughout the United States and Canada, has been selected by the MLB Oakland Athletics and NFL Oakland Raiders to provide their signature Everything’s Fresh™ approach to all catering and concessions provided at the O.CO Coliseum. Ovations is a subsidiary of the Philadelphia-based sports and entertainment firm Comcast-Spectacor.
Ovations took over operations on January 1, 2014, stepping-up to the plate to design more efficient kitchen layouts, create fresh menus and implement custom concepts. Ovations’ Everything’s Fresh™ program, which includes a special focus on using locally sourced ingredients and a rotating seasonal menu, will mean exciting proprietary and custom concepts that bring the flavors of Oakland to both the A’s and Raiders’ fans.
“For Ovations’ future, I couldn’t be more excited to team with the Oakland A’s and Raiders,” said Ken Young, Ovations’ President & Founder. “Ovations is known for the one-of-a-kind experience we bring to all the facilities we operate, crafted through our fresh service, fresh food and fresh ideas. We look forward to bringing our fresh approach to Oakland.”
Jay Satenspiel, Ovations’ on-site Regional Vice President of Operations added, “It’s a true honor to be selected as an on-site representative to head-up the food and beverage team at a high-energy facility. Fans will immediately notice the Ovations difference.”
Satenspiel officially became part of the Ovations team over a decade ago at the openings of AutoZone Park in Memphis, TN, and the Isotopes Park in Albuquerque, NM. Between 2005 and 2008, he lent his expertise to Ford Field in Detroit, MI, the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, and Wrigley Field before returning to Ovations. With over 30 years of outstanding achievements in the industry – from the cutting board to the boardroom – Satenspiel’s hallmark is his 120% commitment to every project.
