SMG announces changes to food offerings in concessions at the Canalta Centre

Medicine Hat, AB (Sept. 23, 2016) – SMG is thrilled to share some of the recent changes to food offerings in the concessions at the Canalta Centre for the upcoming 2016/2017 season.

In early 2016, SMG conducted a satisfaction survey where guests were encouraged to share their overall feedback of their experience(s) at the Canalta Centre in its first season of operation. The survey asked guests to rate various departments including food and beverage, operations, cleanliness of facilty, staff, and parking and to share personal comments and/or concerns. In conclusion to the survey, SMG’s food and beverage department received the most feedback and recognized the need for change.

SMG learned a lot from the citizens of Medicine Hat and are excited to announce the addition of new, qualified staff, new food items, combos, healthier options, and new partnerships with local food providers.

“We are excited to welcome Sean Ganley as our new food and beverage director at the Canalta Centre,” says Peter Jelinski, general manager of the Canalta Centre. Sean most recently worked with Aramark, a fortune 200 global leader whom provides award-winning food services to hospitals, universities, schools, stadiums, municipalities and more.”

Some of the new items available at the concessions include bacon-on-a-stick, vegetarian burgers, veggie cups, signature Skinny’s Smokehouse riblets and more. Kids combos have been introduced on the new menus and will offer apple slices and fresh-baked cookies as an alternative to fries or candy on the side. SMG is also excited to expand their local food partnerships with Skinny’s Smokehouse in addition to Redcliff Bakery. All of the hamburger buns, pulled pork sandwiches and hot dog buns are baked fresh daily from Redcliff Bakery.

“Our goal is to create an enjoyable and affordable night out for the whole family, explains Sean Ganley, food and beverage director. Every single food or beverage item on our concession menus is $8 or under and every combo is no more than $11. I believe in quality and value and the Canalta Centre is here to create value and memorable experiences for our guests.”
