Pretzels, pizza, burgers, hot dogs, and candy bars. Those are the items that hungry Razorback fans could choose from for a quick meal before a game at Bud Walton Arena.

As of the 2012 basketball season, however, you can add chicken sandwiches to that list.

A Chick-Fil-A has taken over one of the concession stand spaces, and will be serving up a limited menu before and during home basketball games this year.

Kevin Trainor, UA Associate Athletic Director for Public Relations, said the restaurant chain will operate through Sodexo, the company that manages concessions for all Razorback facilities.

According to the signage at the arena, the Chick-Fil-A concession stand will offer chicken sandwiches, wraps, fruit cups, cookies, and potato chips.

Chick-Fil-A is one of several local and national brands that operates a location inside Reynolds Razorback Stadium for football games, but as far as we can remember, the restaurant will become the first chain to set up shop inside Bud Walton for a Razorback basketball games.
