As part of a redevelopment of Southern California’s Ontario International Airport’s (ONT) dining facilities, Wahoo’s Fish Taco opened an outpost in Terminal 4.
The redevelopment of ONT's food and beverage concessions is a collaboration with contract feeder Delaware North, which will invest $6 million over the course of 18 months to rebrand and refurbish the airport's dining facilities.
Founded in Costa Mesa, Calif., in 1988 by brothers Eduardo “Ed” Lee, Renato “Mingo” Lee and Wing Lam, Wahoo's Fish Taco has more than 60 restaurants spread across California, Colorado, Hawaii, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Tokyo. “As the brand's founders say, their menu comes from growing up in Brazil, surfing in Baja and working in their family's Chinese restaurant,” says Alan D. Wapner, president of the Ontario International Airport Authority (OIAA). “Wahoo's international heritage is an ideal fit for Southern California’s newest international airport gateway.”
Wahoo's Fish Taco joins other widely known and successful brands at ONT including Wolfgang Puck's WPizza (Terminal 2), Einstein Bros bagels (Terminal 4) and Rock & Brews (Terminal 4) which opened earlier this year.
