Partnership Spotlight: Eat’n Park’s Relationship with UPMC Children’s Hospital Foundation: “A Powerful Force for Positive Change”

Eat’n Park Hospitality Group gives back to the community in many ways, and one of its longest-running partnerships is with UPMC Children’s Hospital Foundation.  

Since 1979, Eat’n Park’s Caring for Kids’ campaign has raised more than $12 million for area children’s hospitals and features a unique intersection of team members and guests working together to raise money during the holiday season. 

“Eat’n Park is incredibly thoughtful and compassionate in the way they not only engage the community, but also in the way their team members embrace giving back,” says Rachel A. Petrucelli, President, UPMC Children's Hospital Foundation. “Because Eat'n Park invests in and empowers their teams, their people take great ownership in the Caring for Kids campaign, which extends far beyond financial contributions. Eat’n Park’s commitment to both fundraising and community service creates a powerful force for positive change, touching lives in a multitude of ways.” 

The money Caring for Kids raises benefits patients and their families every day, channeling the funds into vital healthcare initiatives, including free and uncompensated care to families in need. But Petrucelli says it’s more than just raising money that makes Eat’n Park a special organization to work with.  

“Eat’n Park’s active involvement with guests and community members fosters a sense of togetherness. Through events, fundraisers, and volunteering efforts, they create a network of support that transcends monetary contributions. Families, loyal customers, and community members actively participate, feeling empowered to make a difference, together.” 

In 2009, Eat’n Park Hospitality Group took their relationship with UPMC Children’s Hospital to the next level with the construction of the Eat’n Park Atrium on the 6th floor of UPMC Children’s. 

“The Eat’n Park Atrium serves as host to everything from celebrity and athlete visits, to trick-or-treat activities, to blood drives and the annual KDKA Free Care Fund Telethon. Because of Eat’n Park and the Caring for Kids campaign, the Atrium provides space for kids to truly feel like kids, despite being inside a hospital.” 

Petrucelli says that UPMC Children’s has been a fortunate beneficiary of the exemplary culture of philanthropy created by Suzy and Jim Broadhurst, a legacy that is carried forward by their children, Chairman and CEO Jeff Broadhurst, Vice President of Food Systems Transportation Brooks Broadhurst, and President and COO of the Parkhurst Division Mark Broadhurst.  

“It is their leadership that has prioritized community partnerships like the one they hold with us, and the other charities they support. Their kindness has helped inspire others and provided life-saving care for our kids. We are honored to be a recipient of their unyielding compassion. The commitment to serving kids in our community runs deep for the Broadhurst family and the Foundation, and UPMC Children’s has certainly benefited.” 

There are many reasons why UPMC Children’s Hospital is a top healthcare facility, and Petrucelli believes one of them has to do with their partnership with Eat’n Park.  

“Because of committed friends like Eat’n Park, UPMC Children’s has been able to maintain its position as a top 10 children’s hospital, providing life-saving care to more than 1.5 million children from all over the nation and the world. What a gift to have such industry-leading care for our kids in our own backyard.”

Evolution of Eat’n Park Takeout

While takeout might seem like modern conveniences, it’s something Eat’n Park has been doing since day one in 1949 when we were a carhop!

Guests would order their food from our first location at Saw Mill Run Boulevard in the South Hills, and our servers would bring it out to their cars.

Since then, Eat’n Park takeout has evolved. In the early 2000s, we introduced Pickup Windows to our Eat’n Park locations and today we have more than 50 windows as an added convenience for both guests and team members.

We’ve also streamlined takeout with mobile ordering. While you can still call your local Eat’n Park to place an order to go, you can also use our mobile app and select one of three options: our Pickup Window (most locations), lobby shelf, or curbside pickup.

Yep, 75 years later, we’re still bringing out food to people’s cars! While our takeout has evolved, in many ways, it harkens back to our carhop roots.

In addition to being a dine-in destination, we love being a takeout location for families on the go!

Partner Spotlight: How Eat’n Park and United Way Create Change in the Community

Did you know Eat’n Park’s relationship with United Way dates back nearly three decades?  


“Jim and Suzy [Broadhurst] served as United Way campaign chairs in the ‘90s, and that was just the beginning of a relationship that has had such a positive impact on our region,” says Bobbi Watt Geer, PhD, President & CEO, United Way of Southwestern PA. 

At Eat’n Park, “Creating a Smile” means more than just a dining experience. It’s having an impact in the community in areas like food insecurity and helping families meet their basic needs every day, like through United Way’s 24/7/365 human services referral system, 211.  

“A good partner is one who is consistently present and supportive in the ways the moment calls for,” continues Watt Geer. “When I consider the many ways Eat'n Park has worked with United Way to better serve the community, I am struck by the consistency, legacy, and commitment to creating and expanding goodness in people's lives.” 

While Eat’n Park and United Way have been great partners for many years, the pandemic highlighted the importance of this connection and how it can directly impact local lives. As the United Way was faced with unanticipated urgent issues, one that quickly emerged was how students were going to access food without school breakfasts and lunches, and Eat’n Park had a solution.  

“Brooks Broadhurst and the team at Eat'n Park were already thinking about this issue when they approached PNC Foundation and United Way to develop a network that would deliver meals to families,” said Watt Geer. “This idea blossomed into the Student and Family Food Program that engaged Eat'n Park and a number of other foodservice providers to deliver more than 1.5 million meals over the first two years of the pandemic. That's being a good neighbor and playing your part in making the region a better place to live."
