Federal Donuts and Aramark finally announced their new stand that’s opening at Citizens Bank Park this season, the Insider reports.
We were the first to break the story one month ago today, and we have to say, this one feels pretty good. Several doubters came out of the woodwork to question our report because FedNuts wouldn’t confirm what we found out. But there you have it.
Now that the gloating is done with, we can tell you what the plan is: (more…)
Love Federal Donuts, but can’t stand the long lines, waits, and sell outs of their Center City and Pennsport locations?
Well, there will still undoubtedly be lines and waits, but starting this spring, you can also get your Fednuts fix at Federal Donuts at Citizens Bank Park.
Taking over half of the Alley Grill in the left field plaza, the CBP FD’s menu will consist of the signature fried birds and a tight rotation of donuts. The left field plaza location puts Federal Donuts within a bones’ throw of the ever-popular Schmitter, so get your arteries ready for a long summer.
No official word yet on what they’ll do differently at this location, but we are hoping for some signature flavors at the ballpark. Also no word yet on how this affects new outfielder Delmon Young’s contractual weight-loss clause.

Does Capitolo, the park next to cheesesteak central, seems a bit leafier recently? As part of the Home Runs for Trees program, the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society and the Phillies decided to plant one new tree in the city for each home run last season. Capitolo got the first 40 on Nov. 10, according to the South Philly Review.
Each tree is tagged with the name of a Phillies player and how many home runs he hit last season.
Capitolo was selected because of Passyunk Square Civic Association’s Tree Tender program (top and bottom left), and its proximity to Citizens Bank Park, 1 Citizens Bank Way, the paper reported.
Elsewhere in South Philly, Newbold Neighbors Association (top middle), Lower Moyamensing Civic Association (bottom middle), South of South Street Neighborhood Association (top right) and Queen Village Neighbors Association (bottom right) added to the local tree canopy.
