Bismarck Enterprises was founded in 1983 by Peter R. Wirtz with the objective of bringing greater quality, service and integrity to the food service, merchandising and consulting industries. Bismarck established a prominent reputation in Chicago's sports and entertainment industries.

From 1994 through 2009, Bismarck served the United Center and over 30 million customers at this world class sports and entertainment venue. The Bismarck commitment to customers and clients was put to work through operation of all food, beverage and retail facilities, including the distinctive Chicago Stadium Club, the Ketel One Club, the Bud Light Legends Lounge, the Chicago Brew Pub & Carvery, the Harris Club, the Theater Boxes, the Governor's Room, the NHL & NBA banquet rooms, as well as 196 executive suites, super-suites and branded concession stands.

In addition, Bismarck managed the one-of-a-kind, 5,200 square foot in-arena retail store, Fandemonium, which carried unique and high quality Blackhawks and Bulls apparel and gifts. Bismarck Enterprises also operated HawkQuarters, now known as The Blackhawk Store, the Official Store of the Chicago Blackhawk Hockey Team.

Bismarck Enterprises developed an innovative organizational and control system in order to make the complex food service and retail operations run smoothly. Traditional methods had been improved upon and new methods were implemented. This innovative spirit is a hallmark of Bismarck Enterprises. From the beginning, Bismarck Enterprises serviced sports arenas, racetracks and recreational parks. Some of Bismarck's past clients include United Center, Chicago Stadium, Navy Pier, Chicago Stadium Sportswear Company, Grant Park, Tiger Stadium, Detroit Race Course, Hazel Park Raceway and Northville Downs Race Track.
