Nine new retail shops and restaurants bring an exciting mix of local favorites and nationally recognized names
Portland International Airport travelers will soon have even more choices with new additions to the PDX shopping and restaurant scene.
Pending the Port of Portland Commission’s approval tomorrow, July 10, staff will begin lease negotiations for nine new retail and food and beverage locations, seven of which will open in summer 2020 within the Concourse E extension; the other two outlets will open in the spring of 2021 as part of the upgrades and updates to Concourse B.
The addition of these new concessions offers even more of what travelers love about PDX – Portland’s best local products and flavors mixed with emerging and recognizable regional and national brands. All PDX shops and restaurants provide products at the same prices as at their off-airport locations.
Further, to meet the goal of helping grow small and disadvantaged businesses, the Port made some changes to the solicitation process for these spaces. As a result, this request-for-proposal was the most competitive in PDX history. The Port received 42 proposals from 30 businesses in application for nine locations. When these new concessions open at PDX, 26% of our airport’s concessions will be women- and minority-owned businesses.
“We’re always looking for ways to reduce barriers to entry into our concessions program and the overwhelming response to tweaks we made in our processes was successful,” said Shane Andreasen, interim director of terminal business and properties. “We are excited about this mix of familiar and new offerings for PDX. We focused on companies that could deliver the best customer experience possible. We also paid close attention to quality employers who appreciate the value each employee brings to the job.”
Forthcoming Food & Beverage Options
PDX currently offers travelers 68 shops and restaurants. The opening of these new concessions creates 254 new jobs at PDX. Current information about airport job openings can be found on the PDX Jobs board.
