SAN ANTONIO - Two new vendors will soon take over the concessions contract at the Alamodome, with plans to bring more local flare to the arena’s food and drink menus.

The City Council awarded the arena’s $105 million, 15-year concessions contract to a joint venture between Savor, a Philadelphia-based boutique food service company, and local Black Tie Affairs Catering.

The new team, which takes over in March, unseated Aramark Corp, which has been the Alamodome’s food vendor since it opened in 1993.

The concessions switch is part of an overhaul of the 65,000-seat sports and entertainment complex, which soon will begin a $42 million renovation to replace its concessions stands, double the width of its concourse, upgrade its video screens and renovate its locker rooms, among other changes.

Savor and Black Tie Affairs have recruited hometown restaurants such as Los Barrios, Earl Abel’s and The Big Bib barbeque restaurant to set up shop in the arena. 

Also being sold will be sausage from Kiolbassa Provision Co., beer from Alamo Beer Co., spirits from Rebecca Creek Distillery and a selection of wines from the Fredericksburg area.
