Welcome to Professional Sports Catering.
Sports Catering is a full service food and
beverage company that focuses exclusively
on minor league baseball.
1996, when we opened our first ballpark
in Lansing, Michigan, we hired one of the
“big” food and beverage companies
to run our food operation. We weren’t
happy from day one. To them, despite attendance
of over 500,000, we were small potatoes.
We weren’t happy with their communication,
their customer service or the quality of
five years, we took the operation over ourselves.
Despite a few growing pains, we were able
to increase our food per caps over 30 percent
in the first year. Our food was better,
our customer service was improved, and our
bottom line was fatter.
years later (and over $25 million of food
later), we have decided to bring what we’ve
learned about the minor league food business
to other teams.
Sports Catering was launched in 2005 to
serve the needs of minor league baseball
clubs who don’t want to run their
own food business but want someone to do
so that shares their core values: taking
care of their customers, providing exciting
and fresh food and beverage products and
making a fair profit.
strategies are simple.
We focus only on minor league baseball.
We don’t want to be big. Just the
best in our business.
focus on exciting food. Food should be
a reason for fans to come to the ballpark,
not just something to buy because they
are a captive audience.
focus on maximizing revenue, not just
minimizing cost. An excessive focus on
minimizing cost leads to cheap food and
believe in customer service. Really.
We understand the business of minor league
baseball and will communicate with you
and your staff to make sure that we become
a seamless part of your staff.
Sports Catering would like a chance to talk
to you about your food and beverage business.
We honestly believe that we can do it better
than anyone else. After all, it’s
all we do.
