TRG becomes London Southend Airport's leading F&B operator

22 May 2018 by

TRG Concessions, part of The Restaurant Group (TRG), will take over catering outlets at London Southend Airport next month.

The partnership has been announced as part of a £5m plan to develop the food and beverage offering at London Southend Airport over the next 10 years.

TRG Concessions will introduce new concepts in 2018 including pub brand the Navigator, Giraffe Stop and Costa Coffee alongside operating and developing the existing catering concessions.

Existing outlets at the airport include the Arnold Forbes and Lakers brands, which were previously operated directly by the airport.

Glyn Jones, chief executive officer of Stobart Aviation, owners of London Southend Airport, said a key mission of the company is to "deliver a great experience for guests" and feedback has shown that a better food and beverage offering would help to improve that.

Jones added: "This new partnership with TRG Concessions, which will bring six new high street brands to London Southend Airport, is fantastic news for passengers. It is also a great vote of confidence in the UK's fastest growing airport, another step along our road to becoming both bigger and better."

TRG Concessions works with brands such as Comptoir Libanis, EAT, Frankie and Benny's, Garkunkel's, the Fresh Pizza Co and Barburrito to operate their brands in airports.
