The Rocket City Trash Pandas Stadium has reportedly entered a long-term partnership with US-based Halsey Foodservice to serve as a food distributor.
Under the agreement, Halsey Foodservice will be the exclusive provider of food in the stadium, which is currently under construction and set to open in 2020.
Trash Pandas president and CEO Ralph Nelson was quoted by media sources as saying: “We are excited and honoured to have Halsey Foodservice, headquartered in Madison, join the Trash Pandas family.
“Not only is Halsey Foodservice synonymous with quality products and superb customer service, but Halsey is one of the most iconic names in North Alabama’s rich history of growth and community service.”
The partnership has also agreed to name Halsey as the founding partner of the baseball team.
With 140 years of experience, Halsey Foodservice is one of Alabama’s oldest independent foodservice distributors.
The company has been operating a Delivery Tracking System since 2005. It added Fresh Meat and Fresh Produce Divisions in 2001.
Halsey owner, president and CEO Cecilia Halsey was quoted as saying: “Halsey Foodservice is proud to be a part of this latest expansion for Huntsville, Madison, and the surrounding area.
“My family and, particularly, my father have long been committed to the growth and success of the Huntsville area from fundraising for the UAH campus, Redstone Arsenal, and his early involvement with the Space programme. My father’s love for this community has been evident and long-lasting.”
