Food and beverage operator SSP America has been contracted to develop and operate two new casual-dining outlets in the International Terminal at San Francisco International Airport in California, USA.

The new units include chef David Lawrence and Monetta White’s 1300 on Fillmore, a spin-off from the renowned restaurant located in San Francisco’s Fillmore Jazz District, and a Wendy’s fast-food outlet.

Passengers dining at 1300 on Fillmore will be able to choose from a wide range of comfort foods including Fresh Water Shrimp Hushpuppies and Southern favorites such as Barbeque Shrimp N’ Grits and the restaurant’s famous 1300 Black Skillet Fried Chicken. Wendy’s will provide passengers with its traditional selection of freshly made burgers and sandwiches. Wendy’s is scheduled to open in September 2016, with 1300 on Fillmore opening in January 2017.

Monetta White, owner of 1300 on Fillmore, said, “Collaborating with SSP America has provided us a unique opportunity to touch millions of people’s hearts with food. We’re excited to show the airport and the world the best that today’s Southern-style American cuisine has to offer. We can’t wait for opening day.”

Michael Svagdis, CEO, SSP America, said, “With San Francisco International’s significant 33% growth rate in recent years and 2015 seeing a record-breaking 50 million passengers, the sky is this gateway’s only limit.

“SSP America is honored to be bringing world-class brands that will continue to grow with the airport and meet every passenger’s needs. We look forward to further developing our partnership at San Francisco International as well as the Bay Area community.”
