Delaware North selects Frito-Lay’s Tostitos as preferred tortilla chips across its sports and other U.S. locations

BUFFALO, N.Y. (April 4, 2024) – Delaware North, a global hospitality and entertainment company, has selected Frito-Lay’s Tostitos® as its preferred bulk tortilla chips across its more than 150 U.S. operating locations.

Delaware North sells more than 2 million servings of tortilla chips in nachos and other menu items in its concessions, premium dining and restaurant operations, primarily at more than 50 sports stadiums and arenas – including in Major League Baseball, NFL, NHL, NBA and MLS – as well as in the company’s airport, national and state park, hotel, resort, gaming and destination restaurant operations.

The move also expands Delaware North’s existing partnership with PepsiCo’s Frito-Lay brands. Since 2016, Tostitos has been the exclusive tortilla chip served at TD Garden, which is owned and operated by Delaware North. Frito-Lay is the sponsor and exclusive product provider of all salty snacks (e.g., potato chips, corn chips, dips) at the arena, home of the Boston Bruins and Boston Celtics.

“Delaware North is proud to be increasing our brand portfolio and elevating our strategic partnership with PepsiCo by now serving Frito-Lay’s Tostitos, which are nationally recognized for being a delicious, high-quality product,” said Gonzalo Checa, vice president of procurement and category management for Delaware North. “Working with PepsiCo is allowing us to elevate our Frito-Lay offering to delight our guests, while at the same time providing us with consistency of supply and pricing.”

Delaware North began its relationship with PepsiCo in 2009, and just last year renewed its strategic partnership in the beverage category through 2027.

“A strategic priority for Frito-Lay, and PepsiCo as a whole, is to engage and excite our customers where they live, work, travel, and play,” said Tyler Chapman, senior vice president of Foodservice at Frito-Lay. “The Tostitos partnership with Delaware North is an integral next step to bring our brands to life within some of the most prestigious properties across the country.”

Delaware North Sportservice’s culinary team is transitioning to Tostitos chips, including the thick-cut yellow rounds, for its 10 Major League Baseball operations beginning this spring and then at other sports stadiums.

“We will be offering an elevated nachos experience to our guests in MLB this season with Tostitos,” said Kevin Miller, vice president of food and beverage for Delaware North Sportservice. “I think they will find these chips to be perfect, with a great texture and just the right amount of corn flavor and saltiness.”
