Global Spectrum, operators of the Donald L. Tucker Civic Center at Florida State University, have many new items to introduce to fans this season. The building renovations don’t end with the new court, seats, and scoreboards. This season we are excited to provide to our patrons and basketball fans, new menus, new concession stands, and a new pouring rights sponsor, Coca-Cola.
Global Spectrum’s in house Food and Beverage Department, Center Catering, headed up by Director Jason Close, has been hard at work changing, updating, and improving everything from popular menu items to the stands they are served in. “We want the guests of the building to be in awe when they first walk onto the concourse this season, these changes improve the quality of the food and add an atmosphere that will have people talking. I’m also personally excited about the changes our premium guests in our meeting spaces will see. Changes to wedding receptions, banquets, and general meetings menus have also been revamped”, said Jason Close.
The first two concession stands completed are newly named, Osceola Grill, and Capital Classics located near the student entrance, and main Northwest doors. The exterior of the stands are themed and sure to delight Seminole fans. A local favorite 101 Restaurant has also emerged in a third stand located on the main concourse. It’s not just the exterior that has been improved, all menu items are not only of greater quality but prices have not been raised from last year to create a more consistent yet satisfying dining experience. You’ll notice these new changes to the concourse when the basketball season opens this Friday, November 14 as the Florida State Women take on UAB at 7:00PM and Saturday, November 15 as the Florida State Men take on Manhattan at 1:00PM.
The Tucker Civic Center has also officially switched over to the new exclusive pouring rights sponsor, Coca-Cola. Starting immediately their beverages will be served at all events in the building.
