Highwater Management and Sports at the Beach Launch New “Healthy Choice” Menu for Attendees
GEORGETOWN, DEL. (March 27, 2012) — Restaurant consulting company Highwater Management, in partnership with Sports at the Beach, one of the largestyouth baseball facilities on the east coast, has created lighter menu options to encourage and provide a more healthful diet , satisfying both the athletes and their families.
Scott Kammerer, owner of Highwater Management – which has supplied the food and beverage at Sports at the Beach for the past four years – says attendees can now enjoy a wide array of healthy alternatives including hummus and pita chips, a vegetable sampler, a fruit and walnut salad, and frozen grapes, to name a few.
The change is timely, in concurrence with the nation’s fight against childhood obesity along with the promotion of physical activity. “We wanted to make a positive change in people’s lives,” states Kammerer. “Originally everyone thought kids were only going to want hotdogs and cheeseburgers, but they overwhelmingly chose these new foods.”
Dan Wheeler, Director of Operations of all food and beverage at Sports at the Beach, manages the facility’s dining hall and three concession stands which serve breakfast, lunch and dinner with freshly-cooked daily specials. Wheeler says he was surprised by the response received from the new menu additions. “We didn’t think it would do well at all,” he explains, “But it really took off to become 20% of our sales.”
Both Kammerer and Wheeler are looking forward to the 2012 season and hope to continue to grow and improve the menu options at Sports at the Beach.
