“Kevin’s knowledge of the food and beverage industry is second to none,” said Miracle Chief Operating Officer Steve Gliner. “His passion for what he does, along with his creativity and attention to detail are going to take our food and beverage operation to a whole new level.”
Bush, 30, will oversee the entire food and beverage operation for the newly renovated Hammond Stadium at the CenturyLink Sports Complex for both Minnesota Twins Spring Training and Miracle season. A native of Fort Myers, Bush comes to the Miracle from the campus of Florida Gulf Coast University where he was a Manager in the Food and Beverage program, overseeing thousands of meals served to students each day. Bush spent four years at FGCU.
“I’m extremely excited to join an organization like the Miracle,” said Bush. “I’m from the area, so I feel like I’ve got an understanding of the types of menu items that our fans are really going to enjoy.”
Bush joins the Miracle just a few months prior to the start of Twins Spring Training with Phase II of the renovation project nearing completion. The upgraded stadium will feature completely remodeled concession stands, a wider concourse, a state of the art food preparation commissary and luxurious new suites with outdoor seating.
“Hammond Stadium is going to have a brand new feel this year,” said Bush, “With all of the upgrades, we are going dazzle the taste buds of our fans. I can’t wait to get in the kitchen and get started.”
Danny Barbosa joins Bush on the Miracle staff as the Assistant Food and Beverage Director. Barbosa, 22, has been involved with the food and beverage operation at Hammond Stadium since 2009 and is a native of Fort Myers.
