San Antonio chef Johnny Hernandez will expand La Gloria and Burgerteca arena concepts.
San Antonio chef-restaurateur Johnny Hernandez has landed a deal with Spurs Sports & Entertainment to add La Gloria and Burgerteca concepts to Toyota Field, the San Antonio Business Journal reports
Hernandez first teamed up with the Spurs in 2018 with the inception of a La Gloria-Burgerteca concession on the AT&T Center’s balcony level. The new deal is an extension of that relationship, since SS&E operates Toyota Field, home to the San Antonio FC pro soccer team.
“We’ve been talking about it for a while, but we really worked on the partnership over the last six months,” Hernandez told the Business Journal
Unlike Hernandez’s other eateries, this new venture won’t have indoor seating, he also told the publication.
The chef also told SABJ
that the new spot's menu will be similar to that of the La Gloria-Burgerteca operation at the AT&T Center. However, Toyota Field suite holders will have access to specialty menus, giving them what the chef calls a “real food experience.”
SA arenas aren’t the only seeking out Hernandez’s concepts.
“I have been approached by other stadium providers in Los Angeles. We’re keeping our focus on San Antonio for now,” he told SABJ
. “We’ve got our hands full as it is.”
San Antonio FC kicks off its 2021 USL Championship season May 1 at Toyota Field.
