Turkey To Go Opens at Target Field for 2011 Minnesota Twins Season
(March 29, 2011) … Turkey To Go, known for its concession at the Minnesota State Fair, mobile food truck on 8th and Nicollet Mall and full service catering, is pleased to announce the opening of a Turkey To Go concession at Target Field.
“We are really excited about the opportunity to introduce more people to Turkey To Go and to Minnesota’s turkey farmers,” said Steve Olson, executive director of the Minnesota Turkey Growers Association (MTGA), the organization that owns Turkey To Go concession at the State Fair. “This will be a great venue to provide Twins fans with delicious, high quality Minnesota-grown turkey. It’s really a perfect fit for us and we look forward to joining the Target Field team.”
Target Field’s Turkey To Go concession will be located on the main concourse behind home plate and will exclusively feature Turkey To Go’s famous “Giant Juicy Turkey Sandwich,” a slow roasted pulled turkey sandwich piled high on an extra soft bun.
“This is a great opportunity for us to showcase one of many excellent products Turkey To Go offers,” said Danny Perkins of Turkey To Go. “Our Executive Chef, Tim Malloy, features new gourmet concepts regularly at our mobile food truck and handles all catering requests from office meetings to large weddings. You can even rent our food truck for special events.”
This week Turkey To Go re-opened its mobile food truck on Nicollet Mall. The debut of Turkey To Go at Target Field will take place during the home opener, April 8th, as the Minnesota Twins host the Oakland Athletics. “We are hoping to be serving up turkey sandwiches at Target Field deep into October,” said Drew Levin of Turkey To Go.
