Food and beverage operator SSP has won a five-year deal worth approximately A$50m (US$32m) to operate three dining outlets in the Domestic Terminal at Brisbane Airport in Australia.
The new restaurants include pan-Asian eatery Chop Chop Chang’s, leading American burger brand Carl’s Jr., and a bespoke concept by SSP called The Marketplace. These new outlets will take the total number of units operated by SSP in Brisbane Airport to six, making it the company’s second most important Australian location after Sydney Airport. The Marketplace is scheduled to open in October 2015, with the other two new outlets opening in mid-2016.
Chris Rayner, CEO of SSP Asia-Pacific, said, “We have been working with Brisbane Airport for some time to understand how to deliver their vision. Our extensive research into the local market has enabled us to create an offer that encapsulates the true character of Brisbane and will help the airport to achieve its aspirations. By mixing the familiar in Chop Chop Chang’s, Roll’d, Pie Face and Fonzie Abbott, with the new in Carl’s Jr, and the tailored in The Marketplace, we have a selection of concepts that will add real excitement to the terminal.”
Andrew Brodie, general manager, aviation and retail management at Brisbane Airport Corporation (BAC), the airport operator, said, “SSP has worked extremely hard to bring point of difference food and beverage retailers to Brisbane Airport’s Domestic Terminal, and will ensure quality products that offer a unique and a memorable experience. We have no doubt travelers will embrace the new outlets.”
