Zenit have signed an agreement with Arena Foods, Pizza Hut and KFC at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum


The club’s new partners will become the main operators of catering services at Stadium St. Petersburg.

The agreement was signed on 24 May at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum. The deal was struck between the club’s commercial executive Ilya Kochevrin and the general director of Arena Foods Vladlen Reutov.

“Working with Zenit is a great honour for us” said Vladlen Reutov. “Before the end of 2018 we will be able to offer visitors to the Stadium new offers, including KFC and Pizza Hut restaurants and together we will move to new victories.”

“The cooperation will not only expand the range of food on offer, but will also increase the number of food outlets at the stadium,” Ilya Kochevrin stated. “At the arena at the moment there are 32 food outlets, now they will be significantly more. We also want to bring the service time to world class standards and for queuing time to be around 1-2 minutes with a service time of 20-30 seconds.”

To implement these goals from the new season, we are planning to switch to a full non-cash payment, which will significantly increase the speed of customer service at peak times.

From 24 to 26 May, Zenit will take part in the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum for the first time. In addition to signing a number of cooperation agreements, the club will present investment projects for the development of Stadium St. Petersburg, sponsorship options and corporate boxes, as well as presenting trends in digital marketing.
