Coors Field Opens Gluten-Free Concession Stand
Dedicated Gluten-Free Location is Thought to be First of Its Kind in MLB
WHAT: The Colorado Rockies and ARAMARK, the exclusive food and beverage provider at Coors Field, announce the opening of a dedicated gluten-free* concession stand. The menu features hot dogs, hamburgers, chicken sandwiches, chips, cookies, brownies, soda, water and gluten-free Redbridge beer. Believed to be the first of its kind in Major League Baseball, the gluten-free stand is located behind Section 147 on the left field concourse.
WHY: This specific location was created in response to increasing requests for gluten-free options from fans with Celiac Disease.
The stand is part of the Rockies and ARAMARK's overall commitment to offer menu options that allow all fans, regardless of dietary restrictions, to enjoy the ultimate ballpark experience.
ALSO NEW: Other enhancements to Coors Field concessions for the second-half include:
- A new Italian Beef Sandwich location behind Section 110.
- Introducing the Mile High Ribeye Stack Sandwich - a 6-ounce ribeye, piled high with cheddar cheese, pancetta bacon, sautéed mushrooms, onion rings and chipotle aioli on a Kaiser bun - behind sections 226 and 239 on the Club Level.
- An expanded $2.50 Diamond Deal Value Menu that now includes chips and salsa, popcorn and candy in addition to hot dogs, nachos and Rock-quitos taquitos.
- Introducing wireless credit card payment technology for in-seat vendors on the main concourse.
