“KC Potato Girl at the game? I did. And I think that’s awesome. And Hy-Vee is sponsoring her and the whole potato bar, I think that’s awesome that the whole City is getting behind her.” “She’ll be doing potato chip commercials.” “I heard that she had some hand warmers in her pocket, and she was turning around eating a baked potato in the stands.” “All of this because of a little potato.” Hy-Vee, Wendy’s, and other companies are now coming forward to collaborate with the hearty Chiefs fan.
