KANSAS CITY, Kan. – Kansas City Monarchs fans can enjoy gluten-free concessions in 2024, thanks to a partnership with Three Bears Bakery KC.

Three Bears Bakery, which specializes in low-carb, sugar free and gluten free baked goods, will provide gluten-free options for every Monarchs home game in 2024. The new options include gluten-free hot dog and hamburger buns, gluten-free pizza and other snacks.

“Outstanding ballpark food is an integral part of our stadium experience. Today is a great day for fans looking for a gluten-free way to enjoy our great offerings at Legends Field,” Monarchs owner Mark Brandmeyer said. “We’re proud to continue our partnership with Three Bears Bakery, a growing and thriving business from right here in our backyard.”

“We are thrilled for the opportunity to serve our community with the Monarchs family,” Three Bears Bakery owners Jabin and Natalie Olds said. “We were founded by the desire to provide families with alternative food choices and couldn’t be happier to be part of this organization, building an experience the whole family can enjoy. We had so much fun in 2023, we can’t wait for the 2024 season to begin.”

The new concessions options will be available at all 50 of the Monarchs’ home games, starting with the home opener on May 16 from Legends Field in Kansas City, Kansas. The club’s season runs through August, with potential playoff games in September.
