Restaurateur SSP Group is bringing a taste of Italian coffee culture to Düsseldorf Airport, Germany, with the opening of its new Bazzar Caffè concept.
Located in departure lounge C, the 200m2 (2,150ft2) outlet is capable of seating up to 84 passengers and features a distinctive interior design that blends both retro and futuristic elements. Passengers can choose from an extensive selection of breakfast options, as well cakes, tapas and salads, which are available daily from 4:00am to 9:00pm.
Aydin Kirici, founder and CEO of Bazzar Caffè, said, “This concept has been exclusively designed from the ground up for passengers at Düsseldorf Airport. All the furniture is tailor-made and each element is bespoke. Italy is famous for the highest level of espresso coffee culture, and we are continuing this tradition with this latest venture.”
With the addition of Bazzar Caffè, SSP now operates 11 restaurants and food outlets at Düsseldorf Airport, as well as an on-site conference center DUSconference plus.
Jan Kamp, director business development and properties, SSP DACH region, said, “High-quality products and outstanding culinary concepts are key criteria when selecting our franchise partners, and Bazzar Caffè features these very characteristics. The brand has achieved an excellent reputation for its roasted coffee in Düsseldorf, and the launch of a local outlet at Düsseldorf Airport will help build closer connections between the airport and the city center’s exciting culinary scene.”
Pia Martina Klauck, head of commercial operations at the Düsseldorf Airport, added, “At our airport, we seek a mix of internationally well-known brands and regional, individual concepts, so we are delighted to open Bazzar Caffè in cooperation with SSP. Everyone involved in the project was passionate about developing this highly innovative outlet, which will give visitors a real taste of Düsseldorf coffee culture.”
