T-Mobile Arena: Serving Drinks at the Speed of Vegas

When MGM Resorts International and the Anschutz Entertainment Group (AEG) joined forces to create a multi-purpose arena on the Las Vegas strip for sports, concerts and more, they knew it had to be something special. Home to the NHL’s Golden Knights, T-Mobile Arena has become THE venue to play when big-name musical acts come to Vegas. It also hosts award shows like the Billboard Music Awards and even boasts a 18,000-square-foot nightclub.

In other words, this is no average stadium.

And the way its patrons are served drinks is no average beverage dispensing system. When MGM, AEG and its partners Levy Restaurants and famed mixologist Tony Abou-Ganim wanted to take this part of the arena to the next level, they looked to RSI and our TenderPOUR™ cocktails on tap dispensing technology.

TenderPOUR™ systems are the most technologically advanced cocktail dispensing systems available today, and ideal for large-format venues like the 20,000-seat T-Mobile Arena. With both mobile and remote options, TenderPOUR™ systems have been engineered and designed to deliver the highest-quality craft cocktails while maintaining maximum consistency from the first pour to the last. TenderPOUR™ delivers all of this at the speed the industry and today’s consumer demands. In large-format venues where reliability, consistency and speed matter most, TenderPOUR™ delivers.  


IHOP: Protecting Customers – and a Longstanding Brand

Established in 1958, IHOP is almost synonymous with breakfast (no matter what time of the day you choose to eat it). For most people, breakfast means eggs. Lots and lots of eggs. But keeping those eggs at required temperatures in a high-volume, high-temperature kitchen is a challenge for even the best of operators. The last thing any restaurateur wants is foodborne illnesses, so protecting their customers and their brand was top priority for the popular chain.

To accomplish this, they came to RSI. Through extensive research, development and testing, our team solved this critical need, creating a refrigeration system that is now standard operating procedure for IHOP. This same technology can be used with virtually any food type. 


Culinary Institute of America: Savor – The Pinnacle of Prestige

Since 1946, the Culinary Institute of America has been sculpting the minds of the world’s greatest culinary artists. At the CIA, each chef is given every opportunity to succeed, with the best mentors, lessons, and equipment available. Savor, along with other student-run restaurants like it, was created to give the chefs a place to showcase their talent on a real stage, and to provide the public a peek into the culinary craftsmanship that walks the halls of the CIA campus in San Antonio, Texas.

A Dynamic Classroom

Revered as the pinnacle of education for the culinary sciences, CIA’s standard for excellence was no surprise. Savor would be flawless. It required the versatility of a classroom with the sophisticated capabilities of any world-class kitchen the chefs should prepare to see in their future careers.

RSI set out to meet these standards. The layout and custom kitchen equipment were both designed and fabricated by RSI to perfectly suit the needs of any dish they could offer. Each piece of equipment was carefully designed with a specific purpose in mind, as RSI understood the importance of this dynamic kitchen environment. With four-course meals and an offering of cocktails and draft beer, Savor is fully equipped to live up to its name.
