Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport (ATL) has issued a request for proposals for food, beverage and retail concessions at ATL Skypointe.

The RFP covers two packages totalling nearly 19,200sq ft across concourses B, C, E and F.

Package one comprises five F&B opportunities at concourse B, while package two includes further F&B units in concourse C, concourse E and concourse F and retail/convenience options at concourse E.

Interested parties can attend a virtual pre-proposal conference on 8 December, with an onsite tour of the commercial spaces scheduled for 9 December. Final proposals are due in early March 2023.

“As one of the region’s most influential economic engines, ATL is clearly moving in the right direction,” commented Atlanta Mayor Andre Dickens. “With the rapid growth of Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, the city will continue to ensure that the prosperity and opportunity that comes with that growth is within reach for everyone.

“This is a legacy that began with Mayor Maynard Jackson, who ensured that minority and women-owned businesses had a seat at the table – and it is a legacy this administration will proudly carry on for an equitable Atlanta.”

ATL General Manager Balram ‘B’ Bheodari said: “Hartsfield-Jackson is a global leader in the aviation industry and it is a priority to provide an exceptional customer experience for passengers travelling to and through ATL. The opportunities included in these proposals will align with our enterprise goals to enhance the customer experience with desirable concessions offerings and services.”

Jaideep Majumdar, the City of Atlanta’s Chief Procurement Officer, added: “Interested proponents are encouraged to participate in these requests for proposals. The concessions procurement process will be transparent, open, fair, and inclusive. These proposals will offer the supplier community the opportunity to create value through partnership, collaboration, and innovation.”

This RFP is the latest update in ATL’s concessions master plan, which will reimagine over 300,000 square feet of space once all projects are complete, serving almost 100 million passengers annually.
