View Full Version : Phillies to Offer Delivered Food to All Seats via iPhone App

A fan launches the app on the iPhone, whose GPS system verifies that he or she is inside the ballpark. With a couple of taps, a menu of sandwich platters comes up: cheesesteak, roast pork, turkey, Italian hoagie, and crab cake. Each sandwich is served with a brownie and chips, so the price ($12 to $19) is a few dollars higher than in Ashburn Alley and premium-seating areas. (For instance, a Tony Luke’s roast pork that sells for $8.50 at the concession will run $12.50 when delivered with chips and a brownie.) Water, soda, and beer (Bud and Bud Light) are available, though beer is delivered only with food, Aramark says. The menu might expand.

Into the phone, a fan taps the section, row, seat number, name, and credit-card number, then “enter.” The order hits an Aramark computer terminal in a kitchen behind home plate, where workers prep and package the food, which a runner puts into an insulated bag for delivery. Tip is optional.

"It's a natural extension of the technology out there," said Brian Hastings, Aramark's regional director of operations.

Figured this was MLB relevant, since all ballparks might adapt this feature if it is successful.

I usually only go to games that Halladay or Hamels pitch. I love this Idea because I hate leaving my seat and waiting in line for food. Just a great idea.

It should be successful. Only a couple of more dollars and you don't have to miss any of the game.

Sounds like a good idea. This would cut down on a lot of the traffic in the concourse. But the biggest thing is not having to miss any of the game.

A lot of stadiums are trying to make your stadium experience more like your home experience. I've heard more things about NFL stadiums doing that but thats cool

Yankees have it so a waiter comes to you and you give them your order. You swipe your card and within 5 mins your food if there. I thought that was pretty neat myself.

Busch is so freaking easy to sneak stuff into. We always brought in little shooters of liquor to put in our pops from there with multiple ways to do it. The best way is you go with a girl have her get a ****** purse cut a hole in the lining and slip them inside there. Then even when they have to open their bag you cant see the bottles.

OMG, kinda like if you had a waiter and they took your order, they would say "I'll be back".....
