Gourmet brand Jones the Grocer’s express concept has launched at Dubai International’s (DXB) Terminal 3 B Gates, the first in a series of bespoke food and lifestyle concepts to be rolled out at the world’s busiest international airport.
Jones the Grocer’s DXB outlet serves single origin coffees, croissants, muffins, sandwiches, salads, soups and hearty main dishes. All items are made fresh daily and packaged ready for immediate take away.
Designed in Jones’ trademark contemporary yet casual decor, the cafe also features seating for customers in stylish surroundings.
Eugene Barry, Executive Vice President – Commercial and Communications, Dubai Airports, said: “We’re delighted to welcome Jones the Grocer to DXB. Their express concept dovetails perfectly with our plans to expand the variety of grab-and-go food concepts. It is also the first in a series of food, lifestyle and cultural engagement partnerships that we will be rolling out in the months ahead as part of our strategy to create an airport experience that is second to none. It builds on the recent service successes we have had with the world’s fastest airport Wi-Fi, WOW-Fi, smart gates and musicDXB. There’s more to come. Watch this space.”
Operated by HMSHost International, the launch strengthens Dubai Airports’ long running partnership with the world’s largest airport food and beverage operator. The collaboration between Jones the Grocer, HMSHost International and Dubai Airports has developed the first Jones the Grocer in an airport and the world’s first Jones the Grocer express.
Walter Seib, CEO of HMSHost International, said: “The partnership with Jones the Grocer enables us to let guests at this dynamic global hub experience the Australian-born gourmet retailer, award-winning cafe and bakery, with menu items featuring ingredients produced by specialist, artisan suppliers and items baked on site by the team.”
