Lightlife and Field Roast Grain Meat Co products are now available on menus at Chicago’s United Center. The announcement follows the signing of a multi-year agreement between Greenleaf Foods, SPC, the owner of the two brands, and the Chicago arena.
The Lightlife® Burger and Field Roast Frankfurter are served at concessions and are on in-suite menus. In addition to the professional hockey and basketball games, the plant-based proteins will also be available at concerts and other events held in the indoor arena.
“We’re proud to be part of the Chicago sports experience,” said Dan Curtin, president of Greenleaf Foods, SPC. “A growing number of consumers are interested in plant-based options with fewer, cleaner ingredients that still taste great, and we’ll continue to deliver on quality, taste, and variety.”
“Our top priority is the guest experience at the United Center and a key ingredient to elevate our dining experience is partnering with top brands like Lightlife and Field Roast to diversify food options guests have access to,” said Kevin O’Brien, Director of Food & Beverage, United Center. “Whether guests are visiting for the first time or returning, this expansion of our plant-based offerings provides a new way to take our games, concerts, and all events to the next level.”
Recently, the company partnered with Indianapolis’ Bankers Life Field House, growing its roster of major sports arenas, which already includes Los Angeles’ Memorial Coliseum, Arlington’s Globe Life Park, and Chicago’s Soldier Field. At Bankers Life Field House, Pacers fans can choose plant-based with a traditional Lightlife® Burger or Field Roast Smoked Apple Sage Sausage.
