DELAWARE NORTH TO RUN CONCESSIONS AT BLUE CROSS ARENA
Delaware North has been chosen as the new concessionaire for Blue Cross Arena in Rochester, New York. Delaware North will take over food and beverage operations as well as suite catering. At the end of June, the City of Rochester notified the arena’s previous concessionaire, Savor Catering by SMG, that they would be replacing them because the operator had “performed below expectations, and it is our view we have to change paths.” SMG’s contract was terminated on July 13 and the city was set to run the facility until a new concessionaire was brought on.
