The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis Partners with Levy to Create a Playful, Inspiring Family and Guest Experience

Thursday, January 30, 2020

Warm and welcoming service, menus driven by food and beverage trends will greet guests at world’s largest children’s museum.

The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis announced today it has selected Levy as official dining and hospitality partner. Levy, the industry leader crafting the hospitality experience at cultural, entertainment, and sports venues, will work with The Children’s Museum to create engaging and technology-driven food and beverage experiences for guests of all ages across the museum’s dining destinations.

“We know that extensive food choices and extraordinary customer service are vitally important to families and children who visit the world’s biggest and best children’s museum,” said Dr. Jeffrey H. Patchen, president and CEO, The Children’s Museum. “We are very pleased to bring award-winning Levy on board to provide the highest quality daily fare in our food court, as well as interesting and delectable menus for our catered events. Levy comes with great reviews and recommendations from other local and national venues.”

“People come to The Children’s Museum from near and far to discover and inspire, and that’s the very nature of what we do as a company,” said Andy Lansing, President and CEO, Levy. “We fully believe that food can bring us together and inspire curiosity, whether by tasting different cuisines or using advanced technology to order. Ultimately, what we serve will more than nourish museum guests. We want dining to become part of the experience.”

Museum guests can expect a variety of new dining experiences across public spaces, group tours, and event catering. Levy will work with its technology and analytics company, E15 Group, and local purveyors to craft healthier grab-and-go menus and new food court dining options that highlight fresh, seasonal, and in-demand ingredients and flavors. Event planners can also expect exemplary, restaurant quality catering, and food will become a part of the experience through interactive cooking demonstrations and contests.

Levy will tap into its Indy experience serving guests at Bankers Life Fieldhouse and Indianapolis Motor Speedway, as well as family-favorite cultural establishments nationwide, including Kansas City Zoo, ArtsQuest Center in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, and Great Lakes Science Center in Cleveland. Levy also serves guests at many of the country’s premier cultural and sporting events, such as the Kentucky Derby, GRAMMY Awards, and US Open Tennis Championships, among others.
