Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC) this week unveiled a varied menu of new restaurants and retail shops for Phase 2 of the new SLC Redevelopment Program, with airport officials stressing that all will be required to offer street pricing.
The concession operators selected are HG SLC Retailers JV, HMSHost, Marshall Retail Group, OHM Concession Group, Paradies Lagardère, Millcreek Coffee Roasters, Minute Suites and SLC Hospitality Partners.
The New SLC Phase 2 has been designed for 19 retail and restaurant spaces totaling 23,873 square feet and many of the businesses selected are ACDBE-certified, airport officials said.
Among the offerings travelers will be able to enjoy next year are local coffee companies Millcreek Coffee Roasters and Hugo Coffee, full service restaurants Red Rock Brewery and P.F. Chang’s, local quick serve eateries Blue Iguana, Rockwell’s Ice Cream and Vessel Kitchen and national brands Auntie Anne’s, Burger King, Jimmy John’s and Wow Bao.
SLC passengers will also see a location for Chicago-based Protein Bar and Kitchen, which specializes in healthy protein-filled dishes.
Retail outlets will include the Atrium, a specialty retail concept that features brands such as Build-A-Bear, Brookstone, Herschel Supply Co. and Sunglass Hut; a Hudson Nonstop and a Hudson travel convenience store; Minute Suites, where passengers can rent out a private room for a quiet escape; SLC Public Market, a convenience and local specialty store theme around Salt Lake’s Farmer’s Market; and a Utah Jazz Pro Shop.
“Passengers have given the Phase 1 concessions four-star reviews,” said Bill Wyatt, executive director, Salt Lake City Department of Airports. “We expect Phase 2 selections to be just as popular.”
The New SLC Phase 2 encompasses a 22-gate extension of Concourse A to the east. The first four Delta Air Lines gates will open in spring 2023, followed by 18 Delta gates in the fall 2023.
Phase 2 concessions are slated to open in fall 2023.
