Food Court in International Terminal is recognized as first in class by The Moodie Report
ATLANTA – Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport’s International Terminal food court won best Airport Food Court at The Moodie Report’s 3rd Annual Airport Food & Beverage Awards and Conference on October 2.
Hartsfield-Jackson’s International Terminal opened in May 2012 and offers high-end retail and dining options for passengers. Among the many dining options, the food court features several local brands, including Ecco, The Original El Taco, The Pecan and The Varsity.
“We are very proud of our new terminal and the additional travel and concession options we can now offer to passengers,” said Hartsfield-Jackson general manager Louis Miller. “To be recognized by The Moodie Report for best airport food court just a year after opening is a great honor for our airport and partners.”
“HMS Host is an outstanding partner,” said Hartsfield-Jackson deputy general manager Miguel Southwell. “Together we were able to implement a vision that provides a unique dining experience at the world’s busiest passenger airport and we are thrilled to be recognized globally for our efforts.”
