Concessions Management Group (CMG) manages and operates concessions within stadiums, arenas and other high traffic venues. A for-profit, social enterprise, CMG differentiates itself from other concessionaires by purposefully hiring a significant portion of our staff from low-income communities through established partnerships with local non-profit organizations. With our unique staffing model of pairing experienced concession workers with employees that are new to the industry, CMG makes it possible for our clients to showcase to its customers, the community and the media their commitment to corporate social responsibility without sacrificing productivity or profitability.
Led by veteran operator, CMG is a top notch operator. We recruit, interview and screen all hires and serve as the employer of record, handling all payroll and human resources-related issues, including terminations. Through our custom training program 100% of our employees receive a minimum of 20 hours of training prior to working their first shift. On-going training further sets our employees apart from other concessionaires. Where appropriate, we work with our clients to embed their standards into our comprehensive training program in order to present a seamless experience for the client and its customers. CMG takes full responsibility for scheduling staff and we work in concert with our clients to make sure that staffing levels match their needs even in the face of changing requirements. Whether its a new product introduction, or a "pop-up" location is needed, we are able to quickly and successfully adapt our operations and staffing.
