Meet the Chicago startup that calls itself the ‘Grubhub for concessions’

| December 19, 2017

The best part about seeing a show or catching a game is waiting in line at the concession stand. Said nobody, ever. Aside from the 1 percent of people who watch shows and games in VIP suites, almost everyone has to wait in a line whenever they want a steamed hot dog or a Bud Light. But that could soon change thanks to the efforts of FanFood, a Chicago startup whose app wants to help the 99 percent skip concession stand lines at live events.

“The intent is to create a premium experience for the average fan at live events,” said co-founder Carson Goodale. “Our mobile ordering platform allows fans to have concession stand items delivered directly to their seats.”

On the FanFood app, event goers can order everything from beer and hot dogs to apparel, with the menu curated by venue management. Orders can either be picked up at a concession stand or delivered. According to the Chicago Tribune, FanFood charges an installation fee and collects a cut of total concession sales, while also collecting a $1 fee for each pick-up order and a $3 fee per delivery.
