During a Village Board meeting on March 13, 2023, the Board approved a Concessions Partnership Agreement between RecPlex and Mr. Wings & Smarty’s Sweets and Treats.

Mr. Wings & Smarty’s Sweets and Treats are Wisconsin based business’ that plan to develop a restaurant type experience to RecPlex members and guests. Mr. Wings will offer an expansive menu of food from chicken, ice cream, popular concession foods, healthy options, kid friendly meal deals, and related cuisine. Smarty’s Sweets and Treats will provide drinks to include Boba teas, refreshers, smoothies, fruit teas, Italian soda, and protein shakes.

Manny Ramirez, owner of Mr. Wings, was named Restauranteur of the Year in 2022 and currently operating in one of Wisconsin’s popular food halls located near the Fiserv Forum and Wisconsin Convention center in Milwaukee. “Our mission is to provide customers with an outstanding line of options that elevate a food program with a focus on great food while revamping the current concessions program,” stated Ramirez. 

Martha Perez, owner of Smarty’s Sweets and Treats, has more than 10 years of experience in the food service industry. She has been providing specialty drinks in Kenosha for the past two years. Perez said, “With our expertise, we will be able to bring excitement and a new concession experience to what is already an established community space.”

Mr. Wings & Smarty’s Sweets and Treats will operate in both indoor locations and select outdoor locations during events during the summer months. The current plan is to have concessions to be open throughout the week to bring consistent food and beverage that members, guests, and staff can enjoy.

“Pleasant Prairie RecPlex is home to various sports programs and special events and is a popular destination for many residents and area visitors,” explained Brett Christopher, Director of Recreation and Programming. “We are excited to offer members, guests, and the community a new kind of concessions option that everyone can appreciate.”
