Concessions operator HMSHost International, a subsidiary of Autogrill, is strengthening its operations in Norway having won a contract to open six new food and beverage outlets at Bergen Airport.
The contract is expected to generate revenues in excess of €70m (US$77m) over the duration of the five-year concession. The points of sale, scheduled to open in late summer 2017, will be operated by HMSHost Umoe F&B Company, a joint venture between HMSHost International and domestic food and beverage operator Umoe Restaurants Group. Autogrill entered the Norwegian market last November, having won a contract to open ten points of sale at Oslo Airport.
Walter Seib, CEO for HMSHost International, said, “This important agreement, following entry to Oslo Airport last November, enables us to strengthen our presence in the country and continue to expand in the Scandinavian market, which is looking very lively. These positive developments also reflect the success of the foodservice formats we’ve developed with our local partner Umoe Restaurants, and which will make the airport an exclusive hub in terms of its food and beverage offering.”
Bergen Airport’s new offerings will include a Starbucks café; a Pronto Fast & Convenient kiosk for the helicopter terminal; an On the Fly automated convenience store for travelers on the go; Alti´tude Bar serving an assortment of local beers; and Norwegian restaurant concepts Bølgen & Moi Food Garage and Fiskeriet.
