Concessionaire Fraport USA has partnered with food and beverage (F&B) operator Skyport Hospitality to bring four new dining concepts to Cleveland Hopkins International Airport, Ohio, this winter.
With more than 5,700ft2 (530m2) of concession space set to be renovated, the multiyear contract includes a mixture of full-service and grab-and-go dining concepts with offerings ranging from Asian to Mexican. The new eateries include:
– Wow Bao – Specializing in hot Asian steamed buns, potstickers, hearty soups, fresh salads, and rice and noodle bowls. Bao, a favorite portable snack in Asia, are filled with sweet, savory and breakfast flavors.
– Shake Shack – This modern day ‘roadside’ burger stand is known for its 100% all natural Angus beef burgers, chicken sandwiches, griddled flat-top dogs, fresh-made frozen custards, and crisp crinkle-cut fries.
– Cantina Taqueria and Tequila Bar – This casual restaurant boasts bright colorful Mexican flavors and authentic traditional cooking methods. Passengers can choose from Mexican style street-food served in the restaurant or grab-and-go options from the express counter.
– 800 Degrees Woodfired Kitchen – This chef-inspired, LA-based brand brings a unique approach to the art of cooking with fire. Renowned for its craft pizzas, the woodfired rotisserie also brings fire-kissed flavors to sandwiches, salads and appetizers.
Tina LaForte, vice president of Fraport Cleveland, said, “We are thrilled to announce the exciting line-up with our new operator, Skyport Hospitality, and to welcome this talented group to our program at Cleveland Airport. We share Skyport’s mission to elevate what it means to eat and drink at an airport. Through our partnership and with these new establishments, we are aiming to deliver that and more to serve the airport’s growing passenger base.”
Robert Kennedy, airport director, Cleveland Hopkins, said, “We have an exciting mix of local and national brands that will enhance their experience at the airport. We look forward to having our guests try these new spots this winter.”
