Global restaurateur HMSHost, along with partner Master ConcessionAir LLC, has been awarded a 10-year contract to operate 14 food and beverage locations at Boston Logan International Airport.

The projected sales volume is US$540 million.

“HMSHost is thrilled to have this opportunity to enhance the restaurant offerings at Boston Logan International Airport with our well-known local partners. We are eager to continue working with Massport and MarketPlace Development on providing truly outstanding dining options and service to travelers,” said HMSHost President & CEO Steve Johnson.

This development means that several of New England’s traditional dining favorites, as well as modern culinary trends, will be available in the airport.

HMSHost will open the restaurants in a combination of new and currently occupied spaces. Planned completion of all openings is scheduled for the middle of 2020.

Opening in Terminal B will be Kelly’s Roast Beef, the family-owned casual eatery with four eastern-Massachusetts locations; Trade, a casual-dining Mediterranean restaurant by James Beard award-winning chef Jody Adams; Sullivan’s, a quick-service seaside-style eatery with a landmark Castle Island location in Boston Harbor; and Monument Restaurant & Tavern, a modern take on the classic American tavern from Charlestown, Massachusetts.

Terminal B will also offer four Starbucks stores, from pre-security to Pier A and Pier B.

In Terminal C, HMSHost will open an airport location of Hanover Street’s year-round indoor marketplace, Boston Public Market. In this marketplace, travelers will find local market vendors offering fresh, seasonal food and drink from New England’s farmers, fishers, and food entrepreneurs. The large market space will also contain a full-service bar and a Starbucks store.

Terminal E travelers will also enjoy culinary flavors from James Beard award-winning chef Jody Adams with Saloniki Greek. This quick-serve Mediterranean-style restaurant will also include a full-service bar.

Travelers will continue to enjoy the existing Starbucks locations in the Terminal C-E connector, as well as in Terminals E and A.

“The New England region has so much to offer in the way of culinary tradition and a thriving modern food scene, and we’re so excited about bringing these special and iconic restaurants into the airport,” said HMSHost Vice President of Business Development Anthony Alessi.
