New 15-year contracts will see Avolta develop nearly 3,500m2 of concessions space across Terminals A, B, and C at the Orange County (OC) airport

The new contracts will see the opening of more than a dozen new dining venues, including outposts of several iconic Orange County-born brands: Mama’s Comfort Food & Cocktails, Wahoo’s Fish Tacos, Sgt. Pepperoni’s Pizza Store, Tacos La Piña, Five Vines Wine Bar, Chaupin Bakery, and Left Coast Brewing, as well as five new Hudson-branded retail stores, including two travel convenience and three specialty retail concepts.

A variety of fun, fast, 24/7 vending options dubbed OC To Go will also be landing at John Wayne Airport, serving everything from hot, made-to-order pizza, Krispy Kreme donuts, and Wow Bao bao and dumplings, to fresh salads, smoothies, and coffee. Passengers will also soon be able to enjoy a revamped Ducks Breakaway Bar, along with several national and globally recognised quick-service brands, including Dunkin’, Panera Bread, Starbucks, Auntie Anne’s, Bonchon, The Habit Burger Grill, and Earl of Sandwich.

“This is a significant and very exciting upgrade to our travel experience offerings at John Wayne Airport. We have built our reputation on carefully crafting concessions programmes that deliver exceptional experiences and a sense of place,” said Steve Johnson, president and CEO, North America, Avolta. “Orange County is a unique region, deserving of F&B and retail offerings that reflect its environment, culture, and diversity. Combined with outlets featuring esteemed, recognisable brands, our F&B and retail programme will bring variety and excitement to the terminal. We are proud of our continued partnership with John Wayne Airport and the County of Orange, and are thrilled by their support of our vision to create the future of retail and dining.”
