Plant-based food brand Wicked Kitchen is partnering with the Minnesota Timberwolves to launch a vegan concession stand at Minneapolis’ Target Center. 

Chef Chard Sarno, chief culinary officer and co-founder at Wicked Kitchen, will oversee the menu, which features vegan subs, burgers and ice creams, including a grilled chorizo brat and a meatball sub. Wicked Kitchen products will also be served in the venue’s Club Level and VIP Lounge.

"With this menu, we pushed the boundaries of traditional game day favorites for bold-flavored offerings that are good for the planet and free from animals," said Sarno.

Wicked Kitchen will also have an ice cream cart at Target Center, featuring plant-based ice creams made with a lupini bean base. The flavors include berry white stick, chocolate and almond stick, and chocolate and red berry cone.

“It's an honor to provide our hometown team with a Wicked experience that fans will love and crave," said Pete Speranza, CEO of Wicked Kitchen, noting that “more and more players are moving to eating plant-based, and we want to give the fans the same opportunity."

Speranza said that the brand is seeing momentum as more sport teams begin seeking plant-based options.

"Wicked Kitchen is a wonderful addition to our concession lineup at Target Center, providing delicious and approachable plant-based options for our fans," said Ryan Tanke, chief operating officer of the Minnesota Timberwolves. "A gourmet and chef-driven offering, there is something for everyone.”
