A new dining hall at PPG Paints Arena provides contactless service for Pittsburgh Penguins fans and visiting teams.

The concept, called Ford Food Garage, contains 24 food collection lockers, each with two chambers that keep items hot or at room temperature.

Fans can order food and drink through an app or QR code and are notified by text when items are ready for pickup. Ford’s Food Garage menu options include Buffalo Chicken Tenders, canned cocktails, and beer.

“As consumer preferences continue to evolve – leaning towards faster, on-demand, contactless self-service models – we are excited to bring hockey fans at PPG Paints Arena the latest in mobile controller,” Alicia Woznicki, vice president of design and development for Aramark Sports and Entertainment, said in a statement.

Aramark is the arena’s food service provider.
