Chicago O’Hare international airport is holding an ‘Open House’ event next week for operators interested in a Request for Proposals (RFP).
The Chicago Department of Aviation (CDA) will host a Concessions Open House event on 30 August for operators interested in responding to an upcoming Request for Proposals (RFP) for food and beverage concessions at O’Hare International Airport.
Concession categories include: quick service restaurant, casual dining with or without liquor service, coffee/tea, snacks, and grab and go.
Multiple in-line locations will be available for lease in 2012 in the above categories.

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.
