(November 5, 2018) — York Revolution officials and the former regional manager of the team’s hospitality partner have formed a new hospitality company based at PeoplesBank Park, the team announced today.
The new company, Revolution Hospitality, has completed the purchase of concessions and catering equipment and Revolution team store merchandise from Legends Hospitality, the Revolution’s long-time partner at PeoplesBank Park, whom team officials praised for that partnership.
“We are extremely appreciative of Legends Hospitality for the great service and products they offered Revs fans for so many years,” said Eric Menzer, president of the York Revolution and a Revolution Hospitality owner. “Recently, the stars aligned and we had the opportunity to create our own company with the right combination of local and team ownership and industry expertise. We have decided to take our fate into our own hands, but we are much more comfortable doing so because of the time we spent working with and developing our craft with Legends.”
Rob Wilson, who formerly managed Legends’ relationship with the team, has been named president and general manager of Revolution Hospitality. He called the company’s formation a tremendous opportunity for the ballpark and its guests.
“We are very excited to build on the great foundation we’ve laid here over the years,” Wilson said. “Our fans are going to receive the same great service from the same amazing staff who’ve been their friends at PeoplesBank Park for years. At the same time, we’re excited by the freedom this gives us to be even more creative in our food, beverage, and merchandise offerings here at the ballpark.”
In addition to the Revolution’s 70 home games, Revolution Hospitality will manage catering for all rental contracts at PeoplesBank Park and plan the upgraded menu options for the ballpark’s new all-inclusive hospitality space, the 1741 Club presented by UPMC Pinnacle, which will open next spring.
