Concession Stand Coffee Options?
« on: January 13, 2018, 12:46:51 pm »

Why not offer quaity black coffee- as always....but also have that machine that is popular at gas stations that pump out the super sweet 'coffee' drink? I'm not a big fan but the ladies and kids dig it....it's a powder mix - easy enough.

You can also go 1/2 and 1/2 w black coffee and it's pretty good.

On a cold day, I'm just thinking of concessions and how we can improve the game experience on frigid days.

Twist one thing I admire about you is that you are a visionary.  In my lifetime there have only been a rare few that possess your vision. Leroy McGuirk, a wrestling promoter from the 70's and 80's, comes to mind as one with similar vision.

The good thing about this suggestion is we have time to implement your plan.  I think we can skate by in September and maybe most of October but I'd like to see this coffee thing up and running by late October of 2018. 

I hope you can keep bringing fresh idears like this to the table. 

One thing I'd like to see is a catfish bar or buffet inside the stadium.  Have different catfish options there for folks.  NEA gas station catfish, southern Arkansas Catfish (mud cats), red river catfish, and of course NWA catfish and the only one I can think of that might want to be a vendor for this would be the catfish hole.  This way people from all over the state could come in and sample various catfish and we could settle this catfish debate once and for all.

If a feller could load up a plate of catfish and all the trimmings and warsh it down with some of that sweet coffee you're talking about I think we'd have concessions that would be the envy of every school in the nation.

Great idea on the catfish Skandar but I bet that ticket package takes a huge donation...probably a part of that fancy North End transition.

On the catfish...we should have these guys come in and cook up some flathead, blue, and channel cat (steaks, fillets, and whole)- show people the difference in damn catfish. They might need my help if all they do is cook that grain fed whisker fish.

There is more to catfish than pond raised channel cat.

on another note, I do sneak catfish into the game in my boot occasionally.

I'll admit it may be ambitious for the proletariat to think they would have access to a catfish bar I would say that our big donors like the traveler and ricepig and perhaps a few more might be able to enjoy amenities such as this and report on it so that the rest of us could live vicariously through them.

Skandar, I don't know how many here are familiar with Leroy McGuirk, but I am, and I have to admit, that made me LMAO.  You know, he really was a visionary though.

Leroy actually started promoting in the 50s after his own wrestling career came to an end, ironically, in Little Rock.

And Twist, that is a capital idea.

Ricepig will let us know...I trust his opinion. With all that dough he's got, I still scratch my head as to why he stays in a Holiday Inn in Springdale when he comes to NWA

In the 21st century, the secret to successful coffee is adjectives. Quantity of adjectives equals quality.

As in:
"I'd like a Hammerdown Road-White Chocolate Steamboat Latte and a Lake Travis Style Organic Anthracite Cappucino"

"Good choice, sir. $38.00"

You and I have covered something similar to this before. How about let's start with the goal of just having enough of everything offered on the current concessions menu in sufficient supply so as to not run out at halftime or by the end of the 3rd quarter? We apparently have to learn to walk before we can jog, let alone run.

Does that work for gas station coffee as well?

Keep everything in stock, for sure - but that's concessions 101..we should expect more. The way coaches are getting paid these days - it makes no sense to not max out the game day atmosphere. If Levy can't get it right, it's time to cut and run.

Powder coffee out of a damn machine is possible in 2018. Like was said previously, mix it with the black coffee with a little caramel white chocolate delight you get something Coach Chad Morris can be proud of.

The Full Tilt Boogie Caramel White Chocolate 50/50 please...

Concession stand should only sell:

black coffee
coke
diet coke
bottled water

hot dogs
snickers
popcorn
potato chips


Any other choices would just slow things down.

This covers the basics and it's only for a few hours.  You can have your exotic items after the game.

On the middle school level, I agree. But this a billion dollar industry we watch on the field just to eat some cold popcorn and hotdogs?

No.

I went to most games from 1961 to 2014, although I didn't go to very many the last few years.  My health finally put a stop to it.

When I went though, one of my goals was to spend as little time in concession or restroom lines as possible.  I was there to watch the game, not stand in line.

Times have changed, I guess. The complete gameday experience for the family is more than just a game. Same goes w stadiums like Jera's World in Dallas...beer, cheesesteak, cotton candy...it helps soften the loss

Jerry World for Hogs and Aggies is an awesome environment in and out of the stadium. I've yet to miss a game there. Hopefully I won't leave pissed off next year for a change

True...

Good stuff - flatheads have an amazing amount of tasty belly meat - we cut it into nuggets - what a treat! Catfish poppers for ricepig and his premium buddies.

Need a Peet's Coffee concession!

What is the deal with Peet's? I keep seeing it talked about everywhere all of a sudden.

and Frito Pie.

I think AQ Chicken used to have a booth right outside of the stadium a few years back didn’t they?

Believe you are right about AQ having a booth.

Spring Practice - for the concessions staff
« Reply #44 on: January 18, 2018, 06:22:28 am »

I think it's time we plan some spring drills & practice for those running our concessions. We seem to be caught 'off guard' every fall...but why? Maybe it's a lack of practice and planning? If our football players didn't practice, they wouldn't play well on Sat either.

We could simulate games (scrimmages) , fans could attend, and the concessions staff could work and get some well needed practice if this all comes together. We could try diff food and beverage ideas and get immediate feedback from fans attending the scrimmage.

These practices won't draw enough attendance to overwhelm the young concessions staff, but just enough to let them sharpen their skills a little before the first big Saturday.

I know...I know - It's winter -but we need to lay the groundwork now if we will be enjoying the 'foods of our labor' in the fall.

If I am not mistaken the is the concession staff ran under the same group as parking staff? If that is the case then there is no preparing for it other then experience. I have parked cars a few times and they just tell you where people can and can't park to keep from getting towed. The school I work for is always sending staff emails asking for workers on the home game parking.

Twist, this has some merit.  Instead of 40 and shuttle times we could time the coke pepsi cup filling time.

Every concession worker needs to know how to call an audible at the line when the play clock is counting down.  What if they run out of hot dog buns and have to audible a hamburger without ever having a meaningful game experience crisis?  I mean this is the SEC.  Not just any concession worker can handle the pressure and demands of the game.

And one more thing.  They have to do something about those prices.   I mean I understand the whole argument of what they get out of being a big time concession worker at a big time program.  But come on man.  $8 for a nacho?  $6 for a coke pepsi?

I think you should lead the charge.  In defense of the concessions groups I know many  of them are volunteers who work concessions for fund raising efforts for their non profit groups.  So Twist, you should lead a group of volunteer trainers from hogville to teach them how to do it right.  If any proceeds come from our time there we can use it to spruce this place up or even use it for bribe money to pay Lanny or ban a few posters who get on our nerves (clears throat---AP--clears throat)

This season the pressure will be on like never before.  Over 80,000 seats for the first time and a completed concourse that allows for fans to easily move to the concession stand of their choice regardless of east side or west side.  Competition for customers will be heated so if they aren't on their game they will lose out.  May the best stand win!
