Restaurateur SSP has been awarded a contract valued at approximately US$88m to operate 21 outlets at Don Mueang International Airport in Bangkok, Thailand.
The contract will run for a period of five years and will include international brands such as Burger King, The Pizza Company, ice cream concept Dairy Queen, coffee shop Caffè Ritazza and SSP’s own pub offer Bill Bentley. SSP will also open a number of Bangkok brands including bakery S&P, fast food concept Thai Express and noodle brand Yentafo. To cater for travelers from South East Asia and China, SSP will introduce Asian restaurant Ajisen Ramen and bakery Bread Talk.
Chris Rayner, CEO of SSP Asia Pacific, said, “Our proven ability to provide world-class brands together with our continuing focus on driving customer satisfaction, quality and sales has been instrumental in helping us win this latest deal. Don Mueang is not only one of the fastest growing airports in the world, but it is also where SSP’s operations in Thailand first began. We are delighted to be building on our strong partnership with Airports of Thailand, and to have secured this very substantial new deal in the face of strong competition from local as well as international operators.”
