Hartsfield-Jackson in the news

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s food critic, John Kessler, on January 15 wrote a piece expressing optimism at the upcoming selection of restaurants.

Rapper Ludacris’ approval to open a Chicken N Beer restaurant in the Airport drew interest from MTV.com’s RapFix blog and The Atlanta Journal-Constitution on January 4.

The Cherokee Tribune took a local approach, publishing a story January 8 about Marietta-based Gabriel’s Desserts’ inclusion among the winning contracts — and entry onto a high-profile stage with significantly more potential customers.

The renovation of food and beverage concessions in concourses T, A, B, C and D has generated excitement, but perhaps no element of the project has been more important than planning the food and beverage and retail concessions that will be part of the Maynard H.

That process began with the official signing of the first of those contracts on January 25; The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported the development.
