Food & Drink Digital Explores Franchises at the Airport

Thinking About Opening a Franchised Concession at Your Local Airport? Food & Drink Digital's December 2011 Issue Has the Scoop

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Dec 18, 2011) - If you have ever wondered what it would be like to run a franchise in a busy airport, you are not alone. New franchises open every year in airports around the world. But what does it take to break into the business? Opening a franchised concession stand in an airport is unlike opening a franchise anywhere else, and so this month Food & Drink Digital contacted San Diego International Airport to find out what it takes and what you can learn to start a concession of your own.

"People see all of the people at the airport and start thinking: 'this is a great place to have a business,'" said Silvas. "But there are always elements that can change that." In fact, there are many elements at play in an airport, from increased security to crowd flow, that can change as quickly as an airline company switches terminals. Knowing how to manage and mitigate all of these factors is crucial to running a successful airport concession.
