Do you ever watch “MasterChef” and say, “Pfft, I could do that” to yourself? Well, you’re in luck.
The Washington Nationals are starting the “Pitch Your Product” contest, which will allow local vendors to submit their ideas to be sold at the ballpark during the 2016 season. Vendors and restaurants can’t exceed five locations and must be based in the area, while individuals are welcome to apply, as well. So, if you’ve had that secret recipe that you thought would be killer beyond dinner parties and cookouts, it’s time to bust it out. The deadline to apply is Nov. 27.
The idea, of course, is for the contest to serve as an opportunity for local brands and businesses to gain exposure through Major League Baseball.
“We are always looking for opportunities to offer a greater variety of local culinary flavors at Nationals Park,” said Valerie Camillo, the Nationals chief revenue and marketing officer, in a press release. “We believe the ‘Pitch Your Product’ showcase will help us achieve this goal, while also giving vendors and restaurants from across D.C., Maryland and Virginia the chance to expand their visibility.”
Info on the contest can be found at Nationals.com/concessions and the finalists will be selected to appear in front of a panel at Nationals Park in December.
