Sydney Airport in Australia has issued a request for proposal (RFP) for up to seven food and beverage brands to be launched in its new Marketplace dining precinct, opening in Terminal 1 (T1) later this year.
The RFP aims to uncover a selection of gourmet urban, fast and fresh foods, as well as a cluster of premium Asian street food brands across a selection of cuisines including Japanese, Vietnamese, Thai and Chinese.
The newly developed food and dining precinct will offer a contemporary street food feel, set against a backdrop of commanding views of the city and airfield. The Marketplace forms part of the ongoing T1 improvement program being undertaken at the airport.
Glyn Williams, general manager retail, Sydney Airport, said, “The Marketplace will be one of Sydney Airport’s most exciting food and dining precincts, offering passengers a strong mix of great street food style fare, especially Asian cuisine that blends traditional flavors with a contemporary offering. The soon-to-be-raised roof height in the area will add to the dramatic backdrop of the airfield, while the casual seating layout will provide ample spaces for passengers to sit and relax in close proximity to their gate lounge. We’re looking forward to working with innovative brands to help bring the space to life.”
