In addition to unveiling the new food items, the Pirates announced that Aramark will be the exclusive food and beverage concessionaire of PNC Park this season. It will extend its reach to include all premium areas, including the Hyundai Club, The Pittsburgh Baseball Club and the Rivendale Suite Level, including Club Cambria, according to the news release.
“Since the opening of PNC Park in 2001, Aramark has worked to bring a high level of quality and innovation to the general concessions at the ballpark,” said Frank Coonelly, Pirates president in a news release. “And we are excited for what they have in store for 2019 with their expanded opportunities in PNC Park.”
