Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC) has unveiled its choice of restaurants and shops for Phase 2 of The New SLC Redevelopment Program.
The New SLC Phase 2 has been designed for 19 retail and restaurant spaces totalling 23,873ft2. When selecting Phase 2 concessions, the airport wanted a mix of local, regional and national choices, while taking into consideration pricing, hours of operation and service standards. When the first phase of The New SLC opened, all concessions began offering street pricing, which is a requirement for Phase 2 as well.
“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 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. Brands include local coffee companies Millcreek Coffee Roasters and Hugo Coffee, full-service restaurants Red Rock Brewery and PF Chang’s. Local fast food brands Blue Iguana, Rockwell’s Ice Cream and Vessel Kitchen will be represented, as well as national chains Auntie Anne’s, Burger King, Jimmy John’s and Wow Bao. Protein Bar and Kitchen (healthy protein-filled dishes) will be available for the more health-conscious traveller.
The Atrium, a specialty retail concept that features brands such as Build-A-Bear, Brookstone, Herschel Supply Co and Sunglass Hut will also be found in Phase 2, as will Hudson Nonstop and a Hudson travel convenience store. The new space will feature Minute Suites, where passengers can rent a private room for a quiet escape, SLC Public Market, a convenience and local specialty store with a theme based around Salt Lake’s Farmer’s Market, and Utah Jazz Pro Shop.
The New SLC Phase 2 is a 22-gate extension of Concourse A. 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 expected to open in autumn 2023.
