An avocado takeover is giving a fresh twist to a pair of American Airlines Center dining destinations. Thanks to a collaboration between the arena’s hospitality partner, Levy, and Avocados from Mexico, two of the nation’s first “avocado-centric” concession stands will debut on the plaza level of the arena.
The “AvoEats” avocado-centric concession stands feature ontrend avocado menu items, including Avo-Toast, Avo-Buffalo Fries, a Guacamole Sampler and an AvoChocolate Mousse. In addition, fresh avocados have been integrated into several dishes across other American Airlines Center concession stands, including Fried Cauliflower with Avocado Tiger Dipping Sauce, Texas Cheesesteak Sandwich Topped with Fresh Guacamole, Shrimp Tacos with Avocado Aioli, and a Green Chile Guac and Queso Burger.
“We pride ourselves on creating food memories for fans that last beyond gameday, and you’ve seen that recently with dishes like our player-themed burgers,” says Levy Senior Executive Chef for American Airlines Center Mark Mabry. “In that same spirit, we think fans will really enjoy these fresh avocado dishes. It’s our personal passion to work with fresh ingredients that represent cooking and dining in Texas and the Southwest, and these AvoEats dishes really speak to the flavors of our city.”
Research shows avocado popularity continues to soar as consumers crave the versatile fruit. Avocados From Mexico is the only year-round, fresh avocado source that foodservice operators can feature, no matter the season. “AvoEats,” dishes with fresh Avocados from Mexico will continue to roll-out throughout the months ahead.
"We are proud to be part of the American Airline Center’s focus on bringing premium, trend-forward menu items to concessions,” adds Avocados From Mexico president and CEO Alvaro Luque. “Arena guests are going to be thrilled with what they find at AvoEats and across American Airlines Center dining options.” The American Airlines Center is a world-class facility which hosts more than 2.5 million guests at over 200 events each year, including hockey and basketball games, as well as chart-topping concerts and events, making it a premiere property to connect with fans and showcase this innovative culinary collaboration.
