The Spotted Cow Moo-ves Back to Peoria Civic Center Arena




(PEORIA)- The SMG managed Peoria Civic Center is thrilled to unveil the latest addition to concession options in the arena- The Spotted Cow. The stand had its grand opening during the Peoria Rivermen’s season opener on Friday October 21st.

The Spotted Cow concession stand is located between section 12 and section 14 and will be open during all major arena events, including Rivermen Hockey games, Bradley University Basketball games, and IHSA March Madness. Classic ice cream flavors of Vanilla, Chocolate, Butter Pecan,  Cookie Dough, Blue Ice (a  fat-free and low calorie sorbet), and “Rookies & Cream,” coined by the Peoria Rivermen. The menu will also include hand-dipped ice cream, shakes (Vanilla, Chocolate, and Strawberry), and house-made cookie sandwiches. The Spotted Cow concession stand will offer all other standard concession fare.


Frank Abdnour, the owner of The Spotted Cow in Peoria, is delighted to be back in business with the Peoria Civic Center.

“I’m just honored to be back at the Peoria Civic Center and to have the opportunity to serve the crowd some ice cream!” Abdnour said. The Peoria Civic Center will be working with Abdnour to create even more ways for the fans to interact with The Spotted Cow, like creating flavors for special events. Abdnour also hinted that a “Lydia Moss Bradley Birthday Bash” flavor might be hitting the menu soon- red velvet cake with red velvet cake batter, all swirled in vanilla ice cream.
