The Utah Jazz and Vivint Smart Home Arena have announced the formation of a partnership with Levy, a sports dining specialty company that caters especially to NBA teams and arenas, to manage food and beverage facilities when the downtown Salt Lake City facility debuts its $125 million renovation in October.
The joint venture, to be known as Salted Honey Hospitality, also extends to Smith’s Ballpark, the home of the Triple-A baseball Salt Lake Bees, as well as the Tour of Utah professional cycling stage race in August and the Salt Lake City Stars season of the NBA G League beginning in November. More than 2 million guests annually attend events at these Larry H. Miller Sports & Entertainment venues.
“Distinctive and delicious food choices are an important part of the game-day experience,” said Jim Olson, president of Vivint Smart Home Arena. “Our guests deserve best-in-class hospitality from trend-inspired menus to building favorites when they attend our events. We are bringing together hometown restaurants and the culinary expertise of Levy to truly elevate the dining experience.”
