NFL American football team the Tampa Bay Buccaneers is reportedly set to sign a new concessions service agreement with Legends Hospitality.
Legends would replace Aramark as the food and retail services provider at the team’s Raymond James Stadium.
The Tampa Bay Business Journal newspaper reports that the Tampa Sports Authority this week approved a deal for Legends to take on catering responsibilities at the 65,000-seat stadium.
The report adds that Aramark has already given notice that it plans to lay off all 919 stadium workers on February 28 when its contract ends. The majority of these jobs are expected to be picked up by the new provider.NFL
The Buccaneers are set to provide more details of its partnership with Legends in due course, but the Journal said the deal would run from March 1, 2019 until March 1, 2025.
Legends would reportedly install a new point-of-sale system at Raymond James Stadium, along with digital menu boards and grab-and-go stations throughout the venue.
Legends provides a similar service at a host of other venues, including New York’s Yankee Stadium.
