SSP Canada has been awarded a new contract by Vancouver Airport Authority to develop and operate six food and beverage locations occupying approximately 14,230ft² at Vancouver International Airport (YVR). The restaurants will be located in the airport’s International Terminal and will include a mix of local as well as modern, world-class international and proprietary brands.

SSP’s portfolio has been tailor-made to meet YVR’s vision. Our mix includes local brands that showcase the area’s best culinary talent, keeping jobs and investment in the community, as well as brands that embrace emerging food trends with customizable menus full of fresh, bold-tasting ingredients. SSP has been operating at YVR since 2009, and we look forward to continuing our investment in that partnership.”

“YVR provides customers with their first and last impression of British Columbia. We are excited to welcome new food and beverage tenants who showcase the very best culinary talents of this region,” said Glenn McCoy, senior vice president, strategy & CFO, Vancouver Airport Authority. “The new food and beverage offerings will provide added options for our customers and will further enhance YVR’s award-winning concession program.”
