A new hawker-style food hall, a first of its kind in Australian Airports, is set to land in November 2019 at the Brisbane Airport as part of the airport’s Domestic Terminal Redevelopment.
A seven-year contract, estimated to be worth US$49.2 million, was awarded to SSP Group to open and operate the new international food hall, which is inspired by local outdoor dining and farmers markets.
Situated at the Qantas end of the domestic terminal on the second level of the departures zone, the new food hall, called Food Collective, will feature five international and local brands:
- Ze Pickle – Australian burger-bar offering food, craft beer, and a unique selection of cocktail and wine
- Upper West Side Deli – New York-inspired concept offering sandwiches and bagels
- Yo! Sushi – serves sushi, sashimi and other authentic Japanese dishes
- Nippon Ramen – serves dumplings and ramen noodles
- Mi Casa Burritos – serves traditional Mexican dishes including burritos, tortillas, and tacos
Food Collective will have a large centralised seating area with on-site self-order kiosks that will allow passengers to order food across all five restaurants.
SSP Group will rotate new food and beverage concepts to keep its offerings current, fresh, and exciting throughout its seven-year contract.
Food Collective will open at the newly redeveloped Qantas Café Court which is part of the $40-million redevelopment of the Qantas and Central Terminal areas. The domestic airport redevelopment started in July 2018 and will be due for completion in late 2020.
