Aramark Ballparks Take 5 of Top 10 Spots on Most Vegetarian-Friendly List

Aramark’s Menus at MLB Parks Hit a Homerun with Vegetarian Fans

PHILADELPHIA, PA (July 30, 2015) – Aramark (NYSE: ARMK), the award-winning food and beverage partner of nine Major League Baseball teams, is pleased to announce five of the ballparks where it operates were named to the top ten list of the most vegetarian-friendly major league ballparks in PETA’s annual list.

Citizens Bank Park (#2), Citi Field (#5), PNC Park (#7), Coors Field (#8) and Fenway Park (#9) were all recognized for their robust vegetarian offerings.

“We are honored, that once again, so many of the ballparks where we manage food and beverage programs, rank among the most vegetarian-friendly ballparks in baseball,” said Carl Mittleman, president of Aramark’s Sports and Entertainment division. “This recognition further exemplifies Aramark’s commitment to enhancing the game day experience with dining options that appeal to every fan, no matter their taste or dietary preferences.”

Although veggie dogs remain popular among vegetarian baseball fans (Aramark sells more than 23,000 veggie dogs at MLB ballparks each season), some standout vegetarian menu items highlighted this year include:

  • Citizen Bank Park’s new vegan wild mushroom & tofu cheesesteak and new three-bean vegetarian chili
  • Citi Field’s vegan pizza, vegan tacos and vegetarian mac & cheese frites
  • PNC Park’s veggie rolls and veggie burgers
  • Coors Field’s vegan loaded baked potatoes and fried risotto balls
  • Fenway Park’s new vegan Fenway Farms kale salad, house made black-bean & quinoa burgers, fried apples and new mushroom & quinoa cakes

Aramark partner facilities regularly rank among the best in sports for vegetarian fare, with Quicken Loans Arena most recently being named one of the most vegetarian-friendly NBA arenas, in March 2015.

Aramark partners with 11 Major League Baseball teams to provide food and beverage, retail and/or facilities services -- Atlanta Braves, Boston Red Sox, Colorado Rockies, Houston Astros, Kansas City Royals, New York Mets, Philadelphia Phillies, Pittsburgh Pirates, San Diego Padres, Seattle Mariners and Toronto Blue Jays.
