The “Levy Equinox”

February 29, 2024

Aptly dubbed the Levy Equinox, February 2024 saw our Levy team at its best, delivering exceptional experiences and delicious food at some of the most prestigious events in sports and entertainment. From the 66th GRAMMY® Awards to the Super Bowl, NBA All-Star Weekend, and the Daytona 500, our Levy team left their mark on more than 275,000 fans and guests this month. First up was the biggest night in music.

66th GRAMMY® Awards

Our team orchestrated a symphony of flavors at Arena and the Los Angeles Convention Center during GRAMMY® week, catering both the main event and the MusiCares Person of the Year Gala honoring Jon Bon Jovi. Embracing inclusivity, we featured vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free options while still showcasing a selection of traditional favorites like Tiger Shrimp Pupusas, Filipino Snapper, & Chicken Adobo Ginger Glass Noodles. Music’s biggest stars sipped on champagne all night, with more than 12,000 glasses poured before the night’s end.

Super Bowl 58

Allegiant Stadium was packed with fans for Super Bowl 58 to witness the Kansas City Chiefs overcome the San Francisco 49ers in a close match. Over 2,000 team members served a delicious spread for hungry football fans at this year’s big game. From the Wagyu Loaded Hot Dog to the indulgent “Sunday Sundae” Griddled Donut, every bite was crafted with care. Like Compass Group, Levy is committed to creating a more sustainable future, and this year’s Super Bowl was no exception. All food vessels were 100% recyclable or compostable, all plastic bottles were eliminated in favor of aluminum, and any food left after the big game was donated to local organizations.

2024 NBA All-Star Weekend

Levy brought their A-game to Indianapolis for the 2024 NBA All-Star Weekend. Senior Executive Chef Chris Albano and the Gainbridge Fieldhouse culinary team designed an All-Star Menu full of Indy’s favorite flavors and elevated stadium fare, including an Italian Short Rib sandwich, Shrimp Ceviche Tostada, and a S’mores Quesadilla. Rank + Rally, Levy’s retail arm, offered NBA fans the perfect souvenir at the 20+ exclusive All-Star pop-up stores located at Gainbridge Fieldhouse and across Indianapolis. The successful week resulted in a new NBA All-Star Retail Sales Record (breaking last year’s record, also set with Rank + Rally in Salt Lake City).

The Daytona 500

The Daytona 500 draws more than 150,000 NASCAR fans to Florida’s Atlantic coast every year. This event is regarded as one of the biggest events on the NASCAR calendar each year, and our Levy team was there for it all. During the “Great American Race,” fans were treated to instant favorites like “The Pileup,” a soft pretzel stacked with crispy chicken tenders, french fries, rich cheese sauce, chili, and bacon. It takes the hard work of more than 1,700 of our Levy team members to deliver 60,000 cocktails, 90,000 beers, and 31,000 classic hotdogs.

From Hollywood’s elite to sports fans nationwide, the incredible team at Levy served up something truly special this month. Congratulations to the entire team!
