Frozen Delights Returns as Delaware River Waterfront Concessionaire

PHILADELPHIA, PA--(Marketwire - May 1, 2012) - Frozen Delights, Inc. has been selected by the Delaware River Waterfront Corporation to be the new concessionaire for the Great Plaza and Walnut Plaza on the Delaware River Waterfront for the 2012 summer season.

Frozen Delights is excited to have the opportunity to bring a fresh approach to serving the guests visiting Penn's Landing. "We hope to create special experiences one guest at a time serving family friendly specialties, tasty seasonal indulgences and a variety of refreshments to the thousands upon thousands of people who will visit the Delaware River Waterfront throughout the summer," said franchise operator Daniel Rivera.

Frozen Delights Inc. started 22 years ago in the ice cream business and quickly expanded by acquiring Maui Wowi Hawaiian Coffee and Smoothies franchises. Maui Wowi is the mainland's leading purveyor of gourmet Hawaiian coffees and premium fresh fruit smoothies. Today, Frozen Delights Inc. consists of Maui Wowi Hawaiian Coffees and Smoothies, Dippin Dots, Mini Melts, Nathan Hot Dogs, and other concession stand favorites.

Daniel Rivera states, "Throughout the years, Frozen Delights Inc. has extended its concession service to racetracks, gaming venues, resorts, parks and malls around the Tri-State area. If we have learned anything in over 20 years, it's that good food and refreshments served quickly will never go out of style. The important thing to understand about our concession service is that although it may be casual it's nevertheless special."

Frozen Delights has selected a diverse group of food vendors such as Auntie Anne's Soft Pretzels, Beka's Food Service, Festival Food Management, Lil Dan's Sandwiches, and Frozen Delights. Frozen Delights, Inc.'s objective is to use their business composition of vendor management to support and complement the goals and objectives of the Delaware River Waterfront Corporation.

Menu items will include traditional items such as burgers, hot dogs, chicken tenders, fries, water ice, smoothies, funnel cakes and soft pretzels along with some specialty items such as empanadas, taco salads, wraps, crab cakes and fried fish. Heartier items will include cheesesteaks, meatball, barbeque chicken and Italian roast pork with spinach sandwiches, while vegetarian options will include Portobello mushroom sandwiches and batter dipped vegetables.

Public Programming at Penn's Landing would not be possible without the continued support of corporate partners such as PECO, Verizon, Pennsylvania Lottery, Coca-Cola Refreshments of Philadelphia and the Greater Philadelphia Tourism Marketing Corporation, all of whom are committed to serving the Greater Philadelphia community.

The 2012 Summer Program of Free Events at Penn's Landing is funded and produced by the Delaware River Waterfront Corporation (DRWC). All events produced by DRWC are FREE to the public on the RiverStage on the Great Plaza, Philadelphia's premier waterfront entertainment destination, and at Philadelphia's newest park, the Race Street Pier.

The fundamental purpose of DRWC is to design, develop and manage the central Delaware River waterfront in Philadelphia. DRWC is transforming the waterfront into a vibrant destination location for recreational, cultural, and commercial activities for the residents and visitors of Philadelphia.
