The National Basketball Association (NBA) team Golden State Warriors and their home ground – the Chase Center in San Francisco, California (US) – recently announced the launch of ‘ampm ASAP Grab and Go’, a new, autonomous checkout store experience, powered by Verizon Business technology, located on the arena’s main concourse, near Portal 19.

‘CHASE CENTER’ stated that originally launched as a pilot during the 2022-2023 NBA seasons, the store is now fully operational for all events at the Chase Center and offers fans quick and convenient ways to purchase food and beverage items.

The Golden State Warriors are an American professional basketball team based in San Francisco (US). The Warriors compete in the National Basketball Association (NBA) as a member of the league’s Western Conference Pacific Division.

The 18,064-capacity Chase Center is an indoor arena in the Mission Bay neighborhood of San Francisco, California. The building is the home venue for the Golden State Warriors of the National Basketball Association (NBA).

Donna Daniels, GM, Chase Center, US, will be one of the Speakers at the Coliseum Summit US to be held at the Dignity Health Sports Park in Los Angeles on September 6th-7th, 2023.

Maintained Mike Kitts, Warriors Chief Commercial Officer, “The ampm ASAP Grab and Go store is a perfect opportunity to leverage innovative technology that will enhance the fans’ food and beverage (F&B) experience at the Chase Center. Innovation is a core component of our business, and both Verizon and ampm have a laser focus on creating opportunities to enhance the customer experience, a unique partnership triangulation that has resulted in a new, innovative grab-and-go contactless shopping concept.”

‘CHASE CENTER’ further stated that the ampm ASAP Grab and Go experience at the Chase Center allows guests to pick up pre-packaged snacks, candy and freshly baked ampm cookies as well as beverages, without going through a checkout line. Powered by Verizon Business and AiFi technology (the largest, most flexible artificial intelligence [AI] platform using autonomous retail technology), guests can tap, swipe, or insert a credit card upon entering the store. After selecting their preferred items, the guests can simply walk through the exit gate and items are automatically charged to their card without cashier interaction or any required wait times.

Observed Jonathan Nikols, Verizon Business Senior Vice-President of Global Enterprise, Americas, “The ampm ASAP Grab and Go is emblematic of our commitment to partnering with venues in driving the future of the fan experience. When you pair supply chain automation with frictionless checkout the result is a win-win for both the fan and the venue operator.”

Verizon Business (formerly known as Verizon Enterprise Solutions) is a division of Verizon Communications based in Basking Ridge, New Jersey (US), which provides services and products for Verizon’s business and Government clients.

The ampm ASAP Grab and Go, powered by Verizon 5G, enables backend store analytics and computer vision to ensure available stock and prevent shrinkage, driving both efficiency while helping manage overall costs. This differentiated self-checkout technology increases speed of service and reduces wait time so fans can get back to the game or show.

Informed Lisa Blalock, ampm Vice-President of Convenience, “Our innovative self-checkout technology allows customers at the Chase Center to spend less time in line and more time enjoying Warriors games. This is part of our commitment to enhancing the ampm shopping experience with reduced wait times and increased speed of service. We are excited about putting this technology into action at the Chase Center, and we look forward to more innovations at ampm locations.”
