Upgraded restaurant dining is a hot trend at airports across the country, and HMSHost, in partnership with KIND Hospitality, Inc. and Emerging Domestic Market Ventures, LLC, was awarded a 12-year contract valued at $264 million to bring new food and beverage locations to Terminal 3 in Phoenix’s Sky Harbor International Airport.
Sky Harbor is modernizing the terminal.
The food vendors willinclude a mix of Phoenix-area favorites and chains. Local restaurants Joyride Taco House and Postino will bring new full-service outposts to the Terminal 3 South Concourse. Local pizzeria The Parlor will also have a new location in the terminal.
HMSHost will introduce a new concept, the PHX Food Hall, in Terminal 3. It will include Panera Bread, local food truck Mustache Pretzels and Shake Shack. The terminal will also host three Starbucks store locations.
The food and beverage outlets will begin to open in late 2018 and into 2019 and 2020, aligning with the airport’s modernization project.
HMSHost has operated restaurants at Phoenix Sky Harbor for many years. The company operates in more than 120 airports around the world and in 99 travel plazas in North America.
