Kansas City Current announces Yoli Tortilleria as next restaurant partner in CPKC Stadium

2023 James Beard Award-winner Yoli Tortilleria, one of Kansas City’s culinary treasures, is the next partner to be announced by the Kansas City Current as part of the CPKC Stadium food and beverage lineup.

The Kansas City original, with a strong Mexican heritage, is sure to be a game day favorite for fans from all over the region. Yoli will be serving tacos: barbacoa de res and a vegan mushroom tinga, totopos with salsa, nachos and quesadillas with their iconic tortillas. Gluten free and vegan options will be available.

Fans are invited to attend a tasting and Teal Tuesday Takeover today from 12-1 pm at Yoli Tortilleria located at 1668 Jefferson St., Kansas City, MO 64108.

“Yoli is a perfect partner for us at CPKC Stadium,” said Kansas City Current Vice President of Marketing Jocelyn Monroe. “Like the Current, Marissa and Mark have brought something into our community with world-wide appeal and made it uniquely Kansas City. We are thrilled that fans will be able to enjoy their delicious offerings at the stadium.”

“What an honor to be part of the rich culinary options being offered at CPKC stadium,” said Yoli owners Marissa and Mark Gencarelli. “It’s such a defining moment in Kansas City history and we are beyond excited to be part of it and how we redefine stadium food.”

Yoli Tortilleria was the first tortilla bakery to earn the prestigious James Beard Award for Outstanding Bakery in 2023. This was the second consecutive nomination for Yoli. Marissa Gencarelli started Yoli with her husband Mark in 2017. It was a chance for Marissa to bring a piece of her home in Sonora, Mexico. Yoli focuses on producing premium Mexican products following traditional processes using local ingredients.

Yoli will greet fans at every event and every match from the southeast side of the supporter’s section at CPKC Stadium and is just one of an elite group of restaurants available to fans inside the stadium.

“Marissa, Mark and their team at Yoli Tortilleria make some of the finest, hand-crafted Mexican products in our region,” said Colby and Megan Garrelts, chef-partners for CPKC Stadium and owners of Rye. “We look forward to their expanded brand at the stadium, featuring their tortillas, tamales, and more - the best is yet to come!”

The club will have more announcements regarding the bespoke food and beverage experience at the stadium in the coming weeks on Teal Tuesdays.  Fans are encouraged to celebrate all things KC Current with the team – and to wear teal – as the story of CPKC Stadium continues to come to life on the riverfront.

CPKC Stadium is the first soccer stadium purpose-built for a professional women’s soccer team. In all aspects of the fan experience, CPKC Stadium will have a focus on inclusivity and sustainability, providing an entertaining and modern atmosphere for fans that develops a passion and loyalty for KC Current and the stadium.
