On Now
Coming Up
  • Sat., Apr. 26, 2014 8:00AM - 6:00PM CDT Packers Pro Shop Tent Sale

    The sale is taking place earlier than in previous years, due to the construction at Lambeau Field and the work that the Pro Shop team must complete in preparation for the new store, which will open this summer. Visitors to Lambeau Field should enter the Atrium through the Oneida Nation Gate. Parking is available in the lot on Lambeau Field’s east side near the Oneida Nation Gate, which can be accessed off Oneida Street and Lombardi Avenue.

    The sale will feature the traditional mix of Pro Shop items greatly reduced in price and other special purchases.

    The team’s football operations staff also has provided Packers team apparel no longer in use, including a large assortment of t-shirts, shorts, jackets, jerseys and pants. Some items are practice-worn gear not normally available in the Pro Shop.

    The tent sale began in 1994 in the parking lot outside the former Pro Shop on the north end of Lambeau Field and grew into a popular event. Now in its 11th year in the Atrium, the tent sale also was held in the west side stadium concourse in previous years.

More on DNC Sportservice

Posted by Mike Spofford on April 18, 2012 – 3:45 pm

Here are some additional news & notes regarding the Packers’ selection of Delaware North Companies Sportservice as the new food and beverage provider for Lambeau Field.

–Packers Vice President of Sales and Marketing Tim Connolly said that companies began “courting” the Packers as long as 18 months ago with the knowledge that the organization’s contract with Levy Restaurants was expiring in 2012. During the course of the formal search process, the Packers received eight fully detailed proposals, narrowed it to four finalists and ultimately chose DNC Sportservice.

“At the end of the day, they clearly stood out to us,” Connolly said. “They’re all you could ask for in a food and beverage provider.”

Connolly noted that two of Sportservice’s other NFL contracts made him take note. One is the deal with MetLife Stadium, home of the Giants and Jets, and Sportservice has shown the ability to keep both stadium clients happy simultaneously. The other is with the Carolina Panthers, whose owner, Jerry Richardson, made his fortune in the food industry and chose DNC Sportservice when the Panthers went from in-house food service to an outside vendor.

“That made an impression on all of us,” Connolly said.

–On a personal note, Sportservice President Rick Abramson, who in his youth sold concessions at Milwaukee County Stadium during Packers games, said he was “born a Packer fan” and wrote his first book report in school on Jerry Kramer’s classic, “Instant Replay.”

Abramson also said Sportservice is working in conjunction with the Packers on a new point-of-service system to improve the speed of concessions service during games.

–Packers Director of Stadium Services Jennifer Ark said concession prices, as usual, won’t be set until close to the start of the season. The Packers will collaborate with Sportservice to set the prices.

DNC Sportservice’s contract officially begins July 1.

    I am already getting hungry for some football, but couldn’t we find some one more local from Wisconsin to handle the food??? I mean, come on, who from Deleware knows anything about brats, kraut, cheese and most importantly beer… Only a little over 100 days left to summer camp, can’t wait!!! Go Pack

    Having worked in the food industry for far too many years, and especially in quality control, I can assert that the key words for food service are: safety, quality, freshness and variety. I look forward to seeing how DNC meets the challenge.

    will they let local people make money or only out of state people they bring in

    I agree with Gary H. Why would the biggest game in the state go elsrwhere to bring in food for the best fans in the world. We as fans want the best of food from the local or at least the state to enrich the possiblity of better and if you can better prices for packer fans to eat . Most of the fans have to travel to the game. It’s like a funeral, at or during the game, people have to eat. so it is something to look at to have alittle better pricing to help the cost. The ticket prices go up and now with a “new food company” expressing new ideas, it only looks like the people will have to pay more again.
    Please take a good look at the prices of tickets and the price of food at the stadium.
    This is a fantastic show. I just hope we can keep the prices down and the quality of game second to none.

    Don’t let the “Delaware” throw you off, as the service provider for the Milwaukee Brewers I am positive that they know about brats, kraut, and cheese. They also will most likely look to hire current concession staff but will train them with the Guestpath customer service program. The executive/administrative positions will prospectively be a mix of staff that have earned promotions from Milwaukee sportservice and local hires. The cost should remain par with the market for the concession options but they will also provide a variant of options that will be for people looking for experience outside of the brat, hamburger, and beer.

    I for one look forward to the what they will bring to Lambeau.

    as a tour guide in california during the 80s & 90s, yosemite concessions – the curry company – was a mess, & when delaware north took over things got much better. so we’ll see what happens.
