Concessionaire SSP America has been awarded a 10-year contract by the Port of Portland Commission to develop and operate a Kenny & Zuke’s Delicatessen & Market at Portland International Airport in Oregon, USA. The new outlet will be located at the entrance to Concourse C and will occupy more than 3,000ft² of retail space.
Kenny & Zuke diners are renowned throughout Portland and provide a wide variety of sandwich combinations using locally sourced ingredients and premium meats, as well as traditional comfort foods such as mac and cheese.
Ken Gordon, owner and chef for Kenny & Zuke’s Delicatessen, said, “Kenny & Zuke’s is so thrilled to be opening our location at Portland International Airport this coming fall. We think we can be a tremendous addition to the airport as the Pacific Northwest’s best artisan delicatessen.”
Michael Svagdis, CEO, SSP America, said, “SSP America is proud to be partnering with Kenny & Zuke’s Delicatessen and to showcase a taste of the Pacific Northwest’s most celebrated food and drink at Portland International. We are always proud to bring exceptional local brands to the airport’s global stage, and the food here is worthy of the world’s attention.”
The new lease is part of a US$19.8m project to refresh concessions at the airport in order to highlight the best of local, regional and national brands. Over the past 20 years, Portland airport has garnered multiple industry awards from Airports Council International-North America (ACI-NA) as well as Airport Revenue News (ARN) for their concessions program and concessions management team.
