Foodservice wins with plant-based options

 

"Johanna [director of Veggie Happy] has done a tremendous job of helping to implement vegetarian menu selections into sporting venues. She is very enthusiastic and will assist you doing research and product selection when necessary. She has encouraged, and assisted me in adding healthy menu items at my venue which we have continued to increase every season."
- Sandie Filipiak, Director of Concessions at AT&T Park

Stadiums & Large Venues: Suggestions to maximize your sales potential

  • Integrate your vegetarian/vegan items into several mainsteam locations throughout the stadium. Don't limit them to a designated dietary stand. You'll generate more sales by having them available with other options and providing easier access.
  • Notify all concession staff of these options and their stand locations so they can help and direct inquiring customers.
  • Include these options on all your menu listings, including your website. Post directional signs throughout the stadium so fans know that these items are available.
  • V (Suitable for Vegetarians) Use this simple V insignia to identify those foods that are 'suitable for vegetarians.' Markets in Europe sell more items this way. Again, no need to limit them to a specialty stand.
  • Choose fun names for your menu items that relate to your team, venue or region. Putting fun names on the menu will further increase their attraction and sales.
