Their additions continue the club's long-standing commitment to working with local food-service providers & producers, including Pierre's Ice Cream, Sugardale Hot Dogs, Smucker's, Shearer's Snacks , Schwebel's breads, Mitchell's ice cream and the world famous Bertman Ballpark Mustard.
"The addition of local brands like Melt, Barrio and Sweet Moses to one of pro sports' gems, Progressive Field, offers even more fan-friendly options at the ballpark," Indians Vice President of Concessions Kurt Schloss said.
Melt's planned offerings at the ballpark include five of its most popular sandwiches: Kindergarten (grilled cheese), Chorizo & Potato (spicy sausage and potato hash), Parmageddon (pierogi, onion and sauerkraut), BBQ Pork (with onion rings) and Mushroom Melt (garlic mushrooms, onions and arugula).
"We're excited to bring our unique sandwiches to Progressive Field and be a part of the Tribe's growing success on the field and off," Melt owner Matt Fish said.
Barrio has gained notoriety for its casual atmosphere and fresh, flavorful build-your-own tacos paired with creative cocktails.
"We couldn't be more excited about Barrio's partnership with the Cleveland Indians," owner Sean Fairbairn said. "We hope we can enhance the gameday experience for our dedicated Cleveland sports fans."
Sweet Moses starts with classic recipes and gives them premium treatment, using Belgian chocolate, farm-fresh dairy products, pure Madagascar vanilla and fresh-roasted nuts to create delicious homemade ice cream sundaes and treats."
"We're thrilled that the Cleveland Indians have chosen Sweet Moses to be part of the exciting changes at Progressive Field," said Jeff Moreau, owner of Sweet Moses. "As an old-fashioned soda fountain named after our city's founder, we're proud to be associated with such an iconic Cleveland sports tradition."
Melt is an independently owned and operated restaurant group created in 2006, with the simple goal of providing great food and in-demand craft beers in a very fun and unique atmosphere. Melt has grown from its humble small storefront beginnings to six regional locations with more organic growth planned.
Barrio offers a casual yet high-energy atmosphere with a day of the dead theme, in addition to its unique tacos and cocktails. Founded in May 2012 in Tremont by owners Tom Leneghan and Sean Fairbairn, Barrio now has locations in Tremont and Lakewood and will open a downtown location in the coming weeks. Fans also can find its award-winning food truck at food shows, festivals and concerts around Cleveland.
