ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – With the Cardinals playing at Busch Stadium and the Rams at the Edward Jones Dome Monday, it will be a busy night for the company providing the food and drink vendors for both facilities.
A Sportsservice official says the company hired 125 new employees last week and put out the call to church groups and others who work concession stands as fundraisers.
One group which has answered that call is the area’s culinary schools.
If the vendor in your section tonight doesn’t look familiar, that may also be because he or she isn’t from the St. Louis area. Vendors are being summoned from other facilities throughout the Midwest, some arriving in town from as far away as Chicago.
The company official says that because the Cardinals have made a habit of playing in the postseason, Sportsservice actually starts planning for nights like tonight in September.
Sportsservice will have 1,300 employees at Busch tonight but the official was unsure of the Edward Jones Dome tally.
