RS3 to Manage the Building’s Food and Beverage Operation and Renovate Concourse Storefronts

CEDAR PARK, Texas – Texas Stars LP, owner of the American Hockey League’s Texas Stars and operator of Cedar Park Center, announced today after a nationwide search they have entered into a partnership agreement with Ryan Sanders Sports Services (RS3) to serve as the building’s new food and beverage provider.

Beginning this month, the Central Texas-based RS3 will bring new storefront concepts to the Cedar Park Center’s concourse. Each storefront will reflect specific themes and menu offerings designed to enhance guests’ experiences. RS3 will also oversee the premium and catering options on the At Home suite level and in the MillerCoors Club.

“This partnership is going to significantly improve the guest experience when they visit Cedar Park Center,” said Cedar Park Center General Manager and Texas Stars President Rick McLaughlin. “RS3’s renovation of the concourse storefronts, overhaul of the selection and increase in the menu quality will give our customers a greater variety of food and beverage options to choose from when attending an event.”

The new storefronts include Texas Smokehouse presented by Smokey Mo’s Bar-B-Q, One-Eighty-Three Chophouse, Rojo’s Mexican Hideaway, Fairlane’s Diner and Metro Deli. Guests will also find expanded wine, food and beverage selections throughout the arena. In addition, Pizza Hut returns with an updated storefront look and location.

Menu items exclusive to Cedar Park Center include 18-inch flatbreads, fried alligator and a hot Cuban sandwich. RS3 will also feature their signature Grilled Cheese Hot Dog, which has become a fan favorite at all RS3 venues. Brian Candler, who brings more than 15 years of experience in food and beverage operations, will serve as General Manager of RS3’s operations at Cedar Park Center.

“Our vision to combine homegrown hospitality and the pursuit of excellence the Ryan Sanders brand represents together with the diversity of Cedar Park Center was a natural fit,” said RS3 President George King.  “We share the Texas Stars’ drive to deliver on the mission of bringing innovative and creative guest service that adds value to their wide array of events.”

Guests can experience the new concepts and updated items beginning Oct. 10, when the Texas Stars begin their 2015-16 season at Cedar Park Center.
