‘Super tasty’

Wicked Kitchen’s CEO Pete Speranza added: “It’s an honour to provide our hometown team with a Wicked experience that fans will love and crave.

“We know our foods will quickly be fan favourites and on par with the amazing team this year. More and more players are moving to eat plant-based, and we want to give the fans the same opportunity…

“There’s no better way to show mainstream America that animal-free foods are super tasty, satisfying and comforting than by serving them up in a basketball stadium in the middle of the country.”

‘Something for everyone’

Ryan Tanke, chief operating officer, Minnesota Timberwolves and Lynx, said the collaboration was a ‘wonderful addition’ to the Target Center’s concession lineup.

He added: “A gourmet and chef-driven offering, there is something for everyone from Wicked’s sandwiches to ice cream. We are so excited to introduce Wicked Kitchen to Timberwolves fans this season.”
