I would love to give them grace, but if you read their promises to make concessions better than Eagle Dinning did, "from Game 1" and read all their promises and bragging on their expertise in concessions. That's where you have to draw the line, on grace. They did not get the basics right. Giving out hot bottled drinks, with a paper cup of ice, cashiers running after items, food tasting overcooked, running out of items before the first half was over. Employees not trained. These are rookie mistakes, not someone with "expert experience." I am not complaining about things out of their control or going to mention the behind the scenes things I have heard.
    These ppl claimed they could do better than Eagle Dining, that sadly did not happen in their first 3 events.
    But, I am looking foward to the next game, as they up their game! They can only improve if we let them know our concerns. Not all criticism is bad if given to help someone improve. God bless Our Eagle Nation
    +1, good post, I too wasn't impressed, I was expecting better.

    Maybe they could put in some ordering kiosk where you could order and prepay. Spread them out so everyone is not jumbled up at the serving counter, then take your receipt to the counter and claim your order. Everyone behind the counter could be dedicated to filling orders and verifying receipts. Have one employee stand between the concessions area and seating so you can slap them if your order is wrong. That employee gets paid a guaranteed 8 hour shift at double wages if they can remain conscious until after the 3rd quarter starts.

    Jeeze .. OK Richie Rich. I don't know if you've heard, but this is Georgia Southern...not UGA. You know we can't afford something like that.

    Not sure how much those kiosks cost but the Braves did add them this season to several concession stands. You can even order beer from them.

    I'd imagine benefit to cost ratio on most things installed somewhere that's only open about 20 hours a year ain't gonna be great so they've got to be picky.

    How were they this week?, went up at half time to refill my water bottle and saw long lines of people standing aimlessly, not smiling. I figured the lack of grins was attributed to our poor play in first half, it certainly couldn't be because of the new and improved concessions(smile).

    I only went once before the game.

    Got me a powerade and my wife a water.

    I didn't go back. Lines looked to be at least 30 mins. I just refilled at water fountains.

    Didn't see any improvement from last game.
