PHILADELPHIA, March 21, 2018 /3BL Media/ - Before the first pitch is thrown on Opening Day, baseball fans will be delighted to know a new lineup of distinctive and flavorful menu options awaits them at their favorite ballpark.

Aramark (NYSE: ARMK), the award-winning food and beverage partner of eight Major League Baseball teams, spent the off-season reviewing consumer insights and exploring local food trends, to identify the foods and flavors fans are craving. With even more vegan and vegetarian options, Aramark is offering elevated ballpark menus that are sure to be a hit with many fans.

As part of Aramark’s Healthy for Life 20 By 20 initiative, and ongoing commitment to providing fans with greater variety, choice and access to healthier menu options, Aramark continues to expand vegan and vegetarian options in the ballparks it serves. For example:

  • Greens and Grains (PNC Park) – Kale, spinach, roasted corn, carrots, quinoa, brown rice, cranberries and sunflower seeds, tossed in a Sriracha-carrot dressing.
  • The Impossible Burger (Citi Field) – Plant-based vegetarian burger, made to order.
  • Un-Tuna Salad (PNC Park) – Chick pea salad made with celery, pickle relish, onions and sweet mayo dressing, served on wheat bread with spinach.
  • Vegan Cauliflower Cheesesteak (Citizens Bank Park) – Roasted cauliflower, poblano peppers, onions, vegan cheese sauce and vegan roll.
  • Vegan’Acho Nacho (Rogers Centre) – Red and white tortilla chips topped with vegan cheese, black beans, guacamole and pico de gallo.

“Food has become a major player in the fan experience and that increased role is a motivating factor for us to continue to enhance our menu offerings each season,” said Carl Mittleman, President of Aramark’s Sports and Entertainment division. ”Ballpark food has come a long way. In addition to doing the classics well, we’re focusing on driving quality, increasing healthy options, making it convenient and providing personalization for our guests.”
