“Our organization recognizes our responsibility in this area and is proud establish this new partnership with PSC to continue to provide guests with the highest quality food and beverage products and extraordinary service.”
PSC will manage gameday food and beverage including concessions, premium areas, the WestStar Club and suites. They will also manage food and beverage service for all non-gameday events at Southwest University Park.

“PSC was formed over 10 years ago to deliver a major-league food and beverage experience at the minor-league level,” said Chief Executive Officer and founder of PSC, Tom Dickson. “We are tremendously excited today to announce our partnership with the Chihuahuas and the Locomotive to provide their guests a first-class hospitality experience.
