Centerplate President/CEO Chris Verros said:

Our partnership with Hard Rock Stadium has been one of our most successful because they have ownership and a management team that truly focuses on, invests in and innovates the guest experience.

We are looking forward to continuing to work together with them to create best-in-class experiences at what is now one of the premier global entertainment destinations in the world: Hard Rock Stadium.

Centerplate and Hard Rock Stadium’s emphasis on innovative, local cuisine is a big draw, continuing a commitment to bring fresh flavour and a diverse array of options to Hard Rock Stadium.

The menus include fresh and renowned food and beverage offerings sourced directly from South Florida. The venue also has 50 craft beers and more than 1,000 tap handles venue wide, one of the highest distribution point totals in the NFL.

Centerplate also worked closely with the Miami Dolphins over the last few seasons lending its hospitality design expertise to the stadium’s recent $500 million plus renovation.
