HMSHost has partnered with fellow restaurateur April Spears to secure a six-year contract for the operation of a new Super Duper Burgers outlet at San Francisco International Airport in California. The store will be located in the airport’s International Terminal and is scheduled to open in early 2018. The contract is estimated to be worth approximately US$33m.
Passengers will be able to choose from a wide selection of signature burgers and sandwiches, including the Super Burger, made from two 4oz patties made with locally sourced premium beef; the chicken sandwich with chipotle aioli; and the veggie burger blended from hummus and cucumber. Super Duper Burgers will also provide a selection of freshly prepared dishes such as its Super Salad and organic ice cream served as a shake or in a cone. Travelers with an early morning flight will also have access to a selection of breakfast options such as an organic egg sandwich with bacon, sausage and avocado; house-made donuts; and Four Barrel coffee. For added convenience, Super Duper Burgers will feature a grab-and-go section so travelers can take their meal with them to the gate or flight.
Kent Vanden Oever, vice president of business development, HMSHost, said, “HMSHost is proud to deliver travelers the best dining choices in the industry and we are excited to enhance the traveler experience with this great local favorite at San Francisco International Airport. Super Duper Burgers’ success began in San Francisco and quickly grew to be loved across the Bay Area. We are thrilled to now be able to introduce these delicious burgers to the thousands of world travelers that go through San Francisco International Airport on a daily basis”
