Food Collective, an international food precinct, has opened in the domestic terminal at Brisbane Airport.
Designed by SSP Group, Food Collective has taken inspiration from outdoor hawker street dining and local farmers markets, creating a space with a distinct sense of place that provides passengers with a wide selection of cuisines, from Asian and Mexican to Western.
The idea of this new precinct is to create a space suitable for all major events and activities throughout the year, from Christmas and New Year, through to Chinese New Year, sporting events and regular seasonal activities. In addition to the precinct calendar, each brand will have a dedicated calendar catering for specific menu changes throughout the year, for each cuisine on offer.
According to the airport, the Food Collective design is adaptable, providing the ability to switch out the brands when trends change over time.
Among the new F&B outlets that opened as part of the launch were: local burger outlet Ze Pickle; Nippon Ramen; UK-owned Mexican food chain Mi Casa; Yo! Sushi; and Upper West Side Deli.
Passengers can order directly from each outlet or from on-site self-order kiosks.
Martin Ryan, executive general manager consumers Brisbane Airport Corporation, said, “The Food Collective forms the anchor of the new Domestic Terminal Café Court. The quality fit-out and range of food on offer is world class and from day one the precinct has been filled with passengers keen to sample the new options.
“It’s exciting to have hit the half-way mark of this extensive renovation which also includes the upgrading of lighting, air-conditioning, way-finding, wi-fi and restrooms, and the creation of more seating and charging stations and enhanced natural lighting.
