SSP America, a division of SSP Group, has been awarded a contract at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) to develop a portfolio of six concepts.

The line-up of brands will see SSP America begin operations at CVG for the first time and include local restaurants that showcase the culinary landscape of Cincinnati – including one that celebrates the Cincinnati Bengals, as well as boutique concepts that feature national brands that offer broad, name brand appeal.

“We remain focused on elevating the airport, adding creative and new food and beverage options for travelers,” said Candace McGraw, Chief Executive Officer, CVG. “We have had great success partnering with local brands to bring more local flavors into the airport. Last year, we opened several new concessions, and we look forward to rolling out these concepts in the coming years.”

“The SSP America team values the enormous economic impact CVG has on the region as a direct result of strategic, long-term investment,” added Paul Loupakos, Senior Vice President of Airport Development and Retention, SSP America. “We will be enthusiastic members of the airport community ready to deliver a terrific passenger experience given our focus on bringing travelers a true "taste of place.'"

See a list of the new restaurants below:

Bengals Bar & Kitchen: A contemporary sports bar that pays tribute to the city’s popular sports franchise – the Cincinnati Bengals and offers classic food, beer and cocktail options

Taste of Belgium: A unique, Belgian-inspired culinary experience with a focus on locally sourced ingredients, featuring a diverse menu of Belgian and American fusion dishes and one of the largest selections of Belgian beers in the region

Dunkin’: Since America "runs on Dunkin'" the operator will open two new locations at the airport; described as America’s all-day, everyday stop for coffee and baked goods, Dunkin' offers a range of high-quality coffees, espresso drinks, teas, frozen beverages, sandwiches and baked goods
