Eight new food and beverage options are coming to the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG), incorporating more local flavors, national brands, and an additional fresh/healthy option.
SSP America, a division of SSP Group, has been awarded a contract to develop and operate the eight new spaces, which will feature a mix of award-winning local and proprietary brands, anchored by industry-leading quick-service national brands. Introducing the new brands will involve the relocation of several of the airport’s existing food and beverage offerings.
The first of the new outlets is expected to open in the first quarter of 2021, with all eight operational by the first quarter of 2022. Two locations, one in Concourse A and one on the west side of Concourse B, will become coffee and snack brand Dunkin’ outlets.
Chick-fil-A at the Concourse B food court moves to a larger space within the food court (formerly the Torn Basil location), while the current Chick-fil-A location in the Concourse B food court will become Fuzzy’s Taco Shop.
The Local in Concourse A will become a Bourbon Kitchen, and Stella Artois/Urban Market in Concourse A will become a localized café and bar, offering handcrafted drinks and Ohio brews combined with locally tailored street eats in an upbeat urban setting. Hop & Cask in Concourse B will become Carmella’s Modern Trattoria , and Panda Express in Concourse A will become Camden Food Co.
“Currently one of the fastest growing airports in the nation, Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky is experiencing positive growth as a direct result of its focused inward investment,” said Paul Loupakos, SSP America vice president of business development. “SSP America is delighted to be a part of this next chapter.”
