Hillsboro Hops choose Florida concessions company

Ovations Food Services, a Florida-based food and beverage catering and concessions provider to public assembly facilities, has been selected to provide food concessions to the new Hillsboro Hops baseball stadium. 

The season opener for the Hops — a minor league affiliate of the Arizona Diamondbacks — is anticipated to be June 17. After signing a five-year contract with the Hillsboro Hops in March, Ovations quickly stepped to the plate, designing kitchen layouts, creating fresh menus for both catering and concession areas and implementing custom concepts.

Ovations’ “Everything’s Fresh” program will mean local hot dogs from Zenner’s Sausage Co. along with farm fresh produce, officials said. The Oregon growing season will be at its peak when the ballpark opens, inspiring menus to match the growing season. Fans will also get to enjoy their favorite local brews, such as Bridgeport IPA, while cheering on their team.

Also available will be ballpark favorites such as freshly-popped popcorn and hot-off-the-grill hamburgers, hot dogs and chicken.

“As a native Oregonian and one who has true appreciation for Oregon baseball, I look forward to helping professional baseball gain a foothold in the Portland area again,” said Tony Hendryx, Ovations’ regional vice president.

Ovations specializes in food, beverage, merchandise and hospitality services for stadiums, arenas, convention centers, fairgrounds, expo-centers, racetracks, zoos, performing arts centers, amphitheaters, casinos and hotels. To learn more, visit ovationsfoodservices.com.
