Coffee and Baked Goods Chain Opens for Business Along with Two New Hudson News Units
CLEVELAND, November 11, 2009 – The freshly brewed coffee and signature tasty treats from Dunkin’ Donuts are now within reach for travelers at the AIRMALL® at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport (CLE). BAA, developer of the AIRMALL® at CLE, is pleased to welcome the world’s largest coffee and baked goods chain to the wide array of new food and beverage offerings at the airport. The unit is located in the Main Terminal Food Court and opened on November 2.
“From freshly prepared baked goods to specialty sandwiches and hot coffee, Dunkin’ Donuts is a favorite with travelers, and we know it’ll become a preferred destination for people who are arriving or departing from Cleveland Hopkins International Airport,” said Tina LaForte, vice president of BAA Cleveland. “Travelers will also be able to grab a drink or a snack and know that they are paying ‘Regular Mall Prices…Guaranteed.’ No mark-ups. Just high-quality goods and services at street prices.”
“Dunkin’ Donuts is a respected national brand that is known for quality and value,” added Airport Director Ricky Smith. “Our ongoing objective with the new concessions program is to continue offering respected retail brands that travelers know and love, and Dunkin’ Donuts is an important addition to the program.”
Dunkin’ Donuts will open an additional unit at the AIRMALL® at CLE in the coming months as the development of concessions continues.
Joining the new Dunkin’ Donuts unit are two new Hudson News units – one on Concourse A, and one on Concourse C. The two new stores opened in October. Hudson News provides travelers with access to one-stop shopping for necessities, reading materials and a variety of packaged foods and snacks on the go. The units are part of a group of eleven Hudson News stores that will be open for business once the concessions transformation at CLE is completed next year.
The AIRMALL® at CLE is a project of BAA Cleveland, designated by City of Cleveland as the developer and manager of all concessions at the airport. The city anticipates the AIRMALL® will double the current participation rate of local and minority-owned companies, double the number of concession jobs, and double retail sales figures during the next decade.
When complete, the AIRMALL® at CLE will occupy 76,000 square feet of retail space.
