Sure seemed to be enough bodies back there - just not enough organization or a sense of urgency. I have been to at least 15 other MLB parks and our service times are the slowest and least efficient. Even on a normal game day (20,000 fans) you should not have to lose a full inning to get food.
I filled out the most recent online fan survey a couple of weeks ago and said the same thing in the comments section. Friendliness or lack thereof isn't a problem at the concession stands, just the lack of efficiency. The one stand that's I've found that's run well is the premium beer stand in the lower deck left-field corner. They have a large menu of beers but they're bang-bang fast in taking orders, pouring beers (often two at a time), making change and moving on. I don't get why the other windows and booths can't operate the same way. Maybe they need a consultant from McDonald's to show them how to manage a fast-food operation.
