The partnership between the Indianapolis Indians and Philadelphia-based Aramark (NYSE: ARMK) will continue at Victory Field. The two have signed a 10-year extension to the agreement allowing Aramark to run concessions at the ballpark.
Aramark will also manage the picnic and premium seating food and beverage areas. Aramark and the Indians have been partners since 2000. The announcement comes as the Indians are celebrating 20 years at Victory Field.
"The sights, sounds and smells of a ballpark are commonly as memorable to fans as the game itself, and Aramark has played an outstanding role in helping create the Victory Field fan experience," said Indians General Manager Randy Lewandowski. "So as we celebrate 20 seasons of Indianapolis Indians baseball at Victory Field, we remain as proud as ever of our reputation as one of Minor League Baseball’s best ballparks and could not be more thrilled to have Aramark as a partner for the next decade."
Financial terms of the extension were not disclosed. The Indians say future enhancements are planned at Victory Field, including renovations to the concession stands and the Elements Financial Picnic Area.
Victory Field celebrated a milestone last month as it welcomed the 12 millionth fan.
