San Diego Airport Authority look to add 16 new eateries

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - The Airport Authority will consider leases for 16 restaurants and 41 retail outlets at San Diego International Airport when it meets on Thursday, it was reported Saturday.

Local offerings under consideration range from beer and barbecue to Thai food. Phil's Barbecue, Stone Brewing Company, Saffron, Bankers Hill Bar and Restaurant and Pannikin Coffee, are among those looking to land space in the airport under three contracts, a local news source reported.

San Francisco-based High Flying Foods has been recommended to run eight food outlets at Lindbergh Field, the news source reported.

Still under review are proposals for food and beverage outlets in 26 locations that were bundled in four packages, which originally generated little interest from bidders because the locations were not as desirable. They were recently revamped to encourage more bidding. The Airport is expected to review bids by Sept. 1.

At the end of 2012, the airport's decades-long contract with HMS Host will expire, ushering in a new era in airport concessions.
