Concession categories include: quick service restaurant, casual dining with or without liquor service, coffee/tea, snacks, and grab and go.

Last July, the City of Chicago awarded Westfield Concessions Management the contract to redevelop several concessions at Chicago O’Hare Airport, including Duty Free Americas’ T5 duty free business.

The concession was previously operated by Chicago Aviation Partners since 1993, a consortium which includes DFA and McDonald’s, but Westfield’s offer for the 20-year contract – where one of its partners is Dufry/Hudson – was preferred by the City Council’s Aviation Committee by a fourteen-to-one vote last year.


The Concessions Open House will take place on Thursday, 30 August from 10-12am at the Hilton Chicago O’Hare International Airport.
