Well friends the 2007 RICHARD A. GRIESBACH EXCELLENCE IN AIRPORT CONCESSIONS CONTEST passed with nary a mention last week in the local news. The contest appears to be big in airport circles however as it strives to, "recognize the best and brightest in airport retail, food & beverage and overall concessions." We know you're intrigued. How did we fare?
Spokane pretty much kicked ass this year as we dominated the small airports category bringing home three (count 'em) awards across multiple categories. These included:
- Best Specialty Retail Program in North America
- Best Convenience Retail Program in North America
and last but not least...
- Best Food and Beverage Program in North America
Seattle-Tacoma took top spot winning the overall concessions contest. DAMN YOU SEA-TAC! We've yet to make it out there for a look, but after the remodel and with these awards there has to be a dramatic improvement. So this holiday season when you're considering all you have to be thankful for at the terminal waiting for your delayed flight to begin boarding, explore the bounty that is Spokane International Airport Concessions.
