A 100% Vegan Concession Stand Opens at Minneapolis’ Target Center

Wicked Kitchen has teamed up with the Timberwolves to bring vegan options to the arena.

Love watching live NBA games but can’t seem to find a vegan option? You’re in luck! Target Center in Minneapolis has become one of the first arenas in the country to launch a fully vegan concession stand!

Wicked Kitchen Brings Vegan Concession Stand to NBA Stadium

The Minnesota Timberwolves and plant-based brand Wicked Kitchen just opened a vegan concession stand at Target Center. The Wicked Kitchen stand at Target Center will offer all of the traditional and craveable sports game food, but with a vegan twist! The menu includes veganized classics such as bratwursts, burgers, meatball subs, and ice cream.

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

The addition of the all-vegan concession stand comes on the heels of more and more professional athletes adopting plant-based diets. “We want to give the fans the same opportunity,” said the CEO of Wicked Kitchen, Pete Speranza.

Wicked Kitchen products will also be served in the VIP Lounge and Club Level. In addition to the concession stand, Wicked Kitchen will also have a mobile ice cream cart at Target Center.
