Can Levy get it done?
« on: September 29, 2017, 07:20:31 am »

The concession stand staff has butterflies, probably can't sleep at night.....Sat is a huge day for the Hogs and the Concession folks.

Don't forget cotton candy....

The Cola Wars are merely a side-show in the battle of line length and customer service.

What is Levi's buyout? Can we afford to cut him loose in case he can't handle the SEC?

Thing is just like the game on the field it won't be a true test of what Levi can handle and if they are ready to be a P5 concessions contender.  Attendance will be far below the TCU game so performance should go up.  Lines/wait times should be shorter.  Now if they come out with the attitude that it's just some run of the mill Sun Belt team and under-staff/under-perform it will tell us more about them than a decent performance would.  We really won't know for sure until the October 21st game with Auburn.

I don't know, but it's a top 20 job, so we should be able to get a top 20 provider!

This is a tune up game for Levi.  We probably won't see any wrinkles in taking and processing orders, they'll just be focusing on correcting mistakes and  good fundamental concessioning.  But don't be surprised if you see a change or two at cashier.

All of their mistakes I seen last game are correctable, so we have that going for us.

So the company i work for provides all the food for Levy (Compass) accounts and they've been huge pain in the butt to deal with.  they have no clue how much to order or even what items to order.  Our rep has to sit them down every week and go through every single item and try to get them to commit to a quantity and delivery date.  We had it down to a science with the previous provider.  Just so you know i'm the guy that buys all the pretzels, ice cream, hamburgers and hot dogs and buns, and even the tortilla chips we enjoy every home game.  Naturally i avoid those items and go for popcorn and bbq.  We are getting ready to review the proposed items for basketball season.  i'll keep the board posted on any potential new crappy or delicious items.

Even so, I am calling for another disaster. Game is during lunch time, so instead of just trying to provide everyone with a bottle of water, people will actually be ordering food. It took me the whole half (actually missed the 2nd half KO) last time just to get a drink and the line was just as long when I left as when I got there. I don't plan to use concessions until they get their act together and if past performance is any indication I doubt anything will change.  I will just wait until I get back to my tailgate or bring my own.

But they have recruited for a big slow, lumbering line of Baby Boomers. This new generation of line is smaller, but much quicker and can shoot the gaps. I don't think Levi has recruited properly to handle them. Doesn't look good for the rest of the season.

The question thus becomes WHY? They are a fairly large contract food company and do other sports venues including stadiums and arenas. One would think they would know what they are doing.

When Levy subs to adjust for foreseen smaller quicker customers, expect to see big slow lumbering Baby Boomers moved to the front of the line.

Biggest improvement is between game 1 and 2. Plus they had the off week. Expect great things.

I fully expect the crowd to boo them as they take a knee during halftime service.

They might not be winning, but Levy leads the nation in Time of Possession and fewest turnovers.

LEVY will get it right soon.   Stand alone BEER concessions in the Club areas will cut the lines at the food kiosks by 50%.

They better have the kettle corn stand back up on the SE corner. 

They or the UA have run off or priced out several good mainstays around the stadium.

Exactly.

They will be overstaffed but when they discover it we'll see if they stay loaded or cut back for Auburn.
