Chase Center, the upcoming home of the Golden State Warriors, this week added diverse new food vendors — 11 of them — to the lineup for the San Francisco arena’s 2019 opening.
Joining Bakesale Betty, Big Nate Thurmond’s BBQ, Sam’s Chowder House and Tacolicious (all announced in 2017) will be:
La Cocina, a culinary incubator that mentors female entrepreneurs in San Francisco and the East Bay.
Old Skool Cafe, a 1940s-style supper club run by at-risk youth in San Francisco.
“They not only represent great cuisine from the Bay Area, but also provide youth, female and minority entrepreneurs with opportunities to further their businesses,” Warriors President and Chief Operating Officer Rick Welts said in a statement.
Both La Cocina and Old Skool will have their own outlets within Chase Center.
Also getting a spot at the enter will be Tony G’s Pizza by a pizza champion Tony Gemignani
