WINNIPEG - Five well-known Winnipeg businesses — three restaurant chains, a book store, and a toy store — will be among the 21 restaurant and retail operations setting up shop in Winnipeg’s new $572-million airport terminal.
Thirteen of the 21 concessionaires for the new terminal, which is expected to open late next year, were unveiled at a news conference this morning at James Richardson International Airport. They include a mix of local, national and international operators.
The five locally owned operators are Salisbury House of Canada, Gondola Pizza, Stella’s Cafe and Bakery, McNally Robinson Booksellers and Toad Hall Toys.
The national and international brands include Starbucks Coffee, Tim Hortons, PGA Tour Shops, T.G.I. Fridays, Upper Crust, Rice Tales, Rosetta Stone and CNBC News.
The other eight restaurant and retail operations will be unveiled later by the two international firms that have been awarded the master concession contracts — SSP Canada, which is overseeing the food and beverage concessions, and The Paradies Shops, overseeing the retail operations.
They will include four news and gift stores and a number of vending machine and kiosk operators.
