SLC International announces concessions for Phase 2 build-out
Salt Lake City— Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC) has unveiled a varied menu of new restaurants and retail shops for Phase 2 of The New SLC Redevelopment Program. The selections provide a snapshot into the area’s local flavor as well as a taste of well-known national brands.
When selecting Phase 2 concessions, the airport wanted a mix of local, regional, and national choices, while taking into consideration pricing, hours of operation, and service standards. When the first phase of The New SLC opened, all concessions began offering street pricing, which is a requirement for Phase 2 as well.
“Passengers have given the Phase 1 concessions four-star reviews,” says Bill Wyatt, executive director, Salt Lake City Department of Airports. “We expect Phase 2 selections to be just as popular.”
The concession operators selected are: HG SLC Retailers JV, HMSHost, Marshall Retail Group, OHM Concession Group, Paradies Lagardère, Millcreek Coffee Roasters, Minute Suites, and SLC Hospitality Partners. Following are the brands they will be operating:
