The Atlanta City Council has approved the selection of Paradies Lagardère to introduce new dining and retail options at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International (ATL) Airport’s Concourse T-North. Under the new contract, Paradies Lagardère will bring three food and beverage locations and a hybrid F&B/retail offering to the concourse.
The hybrid concept, Southern National Market, is in partnership with James Beard Award nominated Chef Duane Nutter and Reggie Washington, the original culinary team behind the One Flew South restaurant at the airport. Southern National Market will feature gourmet pizza by the Pizzaboxx and to-go selections crafted from fresh, seasonal ingredients, as well as a selection of regional gourmet and gift items as well as other retail essentials.
Three familiar brands are also in the mix, including a new version of Vino Volo. Paradies Lagardère said the next generation of the Vino Volo concept offers a contemporized design, expanded beverage program offering craft beer and cocktails with local influences and a reinvented menu covering all day parts, along with the brand’s signature immersive wine experience. Starbucks and Tropical Smoothie Café round out the four-location contract.
“We greatly appreciate this opportunity and are thrilled to bring this incredible collection of brands to the Concourse T-North project at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport,” said Gregg Paradies, president and CEO of Paradies Lagardère. “With a great history and partnership with ATL, we are very confident that these iconic brands and Chef Nutter’s creativity will thrill travelers and elevate the overall guest experience in this portion of the airport.”
