By the numbers: A look at food delivered to Coors Field ahead of Opening Day

How many hot dog links does the Rockies' stadium receive? How about gallons of ketchup and mustard? The short answer: a LOT.

DENVER — The food supplier tasked with preparing for Opening Day at Coors Field has been busy this past week.

That's because this Friday marks the home opener of the Colorado Rockies' 162-game season, a popular event for Denverites.

“We’re proud and we’re excited about the Rockies opening weekend," said Bill Mikulka, president of Sysco Denver, which supplies food for Coors Field. “We’re getting ready. We’ve been working on it since the beginning of February, and we’ve been delivering just about every single day this week.”

9NEWS asked Sysco to round up some ballpark numbers for how much food is supplied to Coors Field ahead of Opening Day. (And seriously...wow.)

Aramark is a Philadelphia-based food service and facilities management company that manages menu items once they've been delivered to Coors Field.

The new menu items are:

  • Shishito peppers topped with Thai chili vinaigrette, green chili and chorizo queso.
  • Tater tots topped with sweet corn, mayo, Cotija cheese, cilantro, cayenne pepper and green chili queso.

The Sysco warehouse that receives the food is 550,000 square feet. Mikulka said the bulk of the product has arrived, but fill-in orders may continue to arrive ahead of Opening Day.
