Orlando World Center Marriott opens new dining, shopping offering

In response to consumers wanting gourmet food on-the-go, the world’s largest Marriott, the Orlando World Center Marriott, launched the Central Pantry, a dynamic new dining offering and one-of-a-kind shopping destination for food enthusiasts.

Focusing on fast, fresh gourmet options, the new innovative grab-and-go marketplace offers chef-crafted cuisine perfect for travelers and locals alike. The concept is designed to serve a number of occasions under one roof. Whether it's a breakfast for bright beginnings, a refreshing snack to relish poolside or just a quick bite before heading out, there are unlimited, restaurant-quality options available in this unique setting, including everything from freshly prepared local food—bakery items, crisp salads, gourmet flatbreads, etc.—to protein shakes and smoothies for the fitness traveler to a variety of fresh-brewed java drinks for morning or afternoon caffeine cravings, as well as spirits, wines and craft beers self-served on-tap by the glass or bottle.

“We are extremely excited to bring this new offering to our guests at Orlando World Center Marriott and could not think of a better person to spearhead this initiative than our new executive chef, Eric Martinez,” said Ralph Scatena, GM of Orlando World Center Marriott. “He is extremely talented, with an impressive gastronomic background. His unique blend of creativity and leadership exemplifies what an incredible asset he is to the team, and we are confident that guests and locals alike will love what he brings to the table at the all new Central Pantry.”
