SSP Signs Contract To Operate 24 Food And Drink Outlets At Dublin Airport

International food operator SSP has signed a new 10-year contract to operate 24 food and beverage outlets at Dublin Airport.

SSP will work with Irish brands such as Bretzel Bakery, Camile Thai, Cloud Picker Coffee, Handsome Burger, Offbeat Donuts and 3fe Coffee at the airport.

Sustainability will be a key feature of SSP’s new contract at the airport. The food operator will be focussing on the removal of single-use plastic at its outlets, and using local and certified ingredients in dishes served at the new units.

“Some Really Exciting Irish Concepts”

In a statement on Dublin Airport’s website, the airport’s managing director, Vincent Harrison, said, “Ireland has a thriving food and drink scene, and with this new partnership with SSP, Dublin Airport will be able to offer some really exciting Irish concepts to the travelling public.

“Almost 100,000 passengers use Dublin Airport every day and we want to ensure that our customers have a quality dining experience, with a sense of connectedness to Ireland using fresh and local quality produce.”

Meeting “Diverse Needs”

Meanwhile, SSP UK & Ireland CEO Richard Lewis commented, “We are confident that our bespoke line-up will meet the diverse needs of all of our customers, providing a true Irish experience to the international traveller as well as those looking to enjoy a real taste of home.”

SSP will open 24 units across both landside and airside locations at the airport, and will take over the operations of existing suppliers from this month. Existing suppliers will be rebranded over time to incorporate a mix of Irish and international brands and new concepts.

The new outlets will incorporate the latest technology, including mobile order-at-table services.
