Chicago-based Levy Restaurants recently announced its acquisition of Minneapolis-based Prom Management Group, a family-owned concessionaire managing over 35 golf events annually.
The acquisition expands Levy Restaurants existing golf presence, which includes the Ryder Cup, PGA Championship, Wells Fargo Championship, Senior PGA Championship and Women’s PGA Championship, to become the largest dining and hospitality partner in the golf industry.
“For both Prom and Levy Restaurants, family is the backbone of our companies," Andy Lansing, president and CEO of Levy Restaurants, said. "With Prom’s strong legacy of delivering a great tournament experience for golf fans, we couldn’t have a more natural partnership. Bill and Tom Given lead an exceptional team who deeply understand the golf landscape. Together, in joining our resources and talent, we create a premiere full-service operation that will elevate the food and beverage experience for golf fans nationwide.”
Prom Golf will be a newly-formed subsidiary of Levy Restaurants, under the continued leadership of CEOs Bill and Tom Given. The wedding and special events sector of Prom Management Group will remain a separate entity from the acquisition.
“Our 25-plus years of creating quality experiences for major golfing events like the iconic US Open are well matched in our partnership with Levy,” Bill Given, said. “We are excited by the opportunity to deliver new resources and ideas to current and future clients, and in turn, continuing to build upon Levy’s strength in PGA events.”
