PITTSBURGH—GetGo Café + Market is redefining culinary convenience by opening a new location in one of its operating area’s most exciting entertainment and sports venues: the PPG Paints Arena.
On April 21, GetGo Café + Market convenience store opened to give Pittsburgh Penguins fans access to fresh made-to-order subs, sandwiches and grab-and-go items in time for the faceoff between the Penguins and the New Jersey Devils on April 22.
"We have been partners and friends with the Pittsburgh Penguins for a number of years, and we're thrilled to bring together two iconic Pittsburgh brands to open our newest, one of a kind GetGo experience in PPG Paints arena," said Laura Karet, president and CEO, Giant Eagle Inc. "We provide high quality, fresh, flavor-packed food and beverages. Convenience should never mean compromise, and we couldn't think of a better opportunity to bring fan-favorites right to the fans!"
"GetGo has become a pillar in the Pittsburgh community, and we are proud to partner with them to bring our vision of a one-stop shop to life at PPG Paints Arena," said Penguins President and CEO David Morehouse. "It has been our goal to make guest experiences as safe and efficient as possible as fans return. GetGo brings a convenient experience with quality products that Pittsburgh fans already know and love."
GetGo Café + Market is a first of its kind for the arena. Located behind Section 116 on the FedEx Level, the store spans the combined spaces of three former concession stands. The made-to-order menu includes chicken tenders, buffalo tenders, mozzarella sticks, mac and cheese wedges, buffalo cauliflower, tots and signature burgers, chicken sandwiches and subs like the Buffaloaded Buffalo Chicken Sub and Philly Cheesesteak.
The partnership with the Penguins goes beyond the new store in PPG arena. GetGo will also be featured in the Penguins social media and mobile app, in-game media, and Penguins radio during games. Fans can also look forward to player and Iceburgh appearances at new GetGo grand openings and during special events. Additionally, a new program called GetGo Great Start will award fans with a free appetizer if the Penguins score three goals within the first five minutes of a game.
