RIDGEFIELD, Wash. – The Ridgefield Raptors, a collegiate summer baseball team in the West Coast League, announces its partnership with FanFood, a Chicago-based technology company that provides in-venue food and beverage mobile ordering, to offer contactless concession pickup for fans at all Raptors home games this season.
In anticipation of welcoming fans back to Ridgefield Outdoor Recreation Complex, Raptors fans can expect a safe and convenient experience ordering their food and drinks through mobile ordering powered by FanFood. Game day concessions pickup will be available at the stadium starting on Wednesday, June 2 at the Raptors’ home opener versus the Cowlitz Black Bears.
With FanFood, fans anywhere at the stadium will be able to browse the concession stand menu from their phones, order at any point during the game, and pay directly from their device. A text alert will notify fans when their order is ready for pickup from the main concession stand. Fans can skip the lines and spend more time in their seats to not miss any of the action.
“FanFood concessions pickup is a key element of our reopening protocols for game day,” said Gus Farah, general manager of the Ridgefield Raptors. “Fans can expect a safe and enjoyable experience at all of our games this season, including an easier and more convenient way to order food and beverages in a contactless manner.”
Since the COVID-19 outbreak, cashless transactions and contactless pickups have risen in popularity for minimizing physical interactions. The Ridgefield Raptors join the Cowlitz Black Bears, Yakima Valley Pippins, Wenatchee AppleSox and Walla Walla Sweets as the fifth West Coast League team to offer fans FanFood mobile ordering this season.
“We’ve seen the pandemic rapidly and permanently changing consumers’ behaviors and mindset, and the new fan experience is defined by both safety and convenience,” said Drake Orser, customer success manager at FanFood. “The Ridgefield Raptors are a fantastic partner for us, and we look forward to helping provide West Coast League fans with their opening day experience.”
