New F&B concepts open at Minneapolis-St Paul International Airport
OTG has expanded its operations at Minneapolis-St Paul International Airport (MSP) with the opening of four innovative new F&B concepts.
Following its initial makeover of Concourse G – which introduced over 43,000 square feet of elevated dining and retail programmes and secured MSP’s 2013 distinction of ‘Best Food & Beverage Program in North America’ from ACI-NA – OTG claims to have “advanced the airport’s guest experience even further by showcasing some of the region’s finest chefs and artisans”.
Notably featured within this newly developed footprint is the debut of MSP’s first “transforming concept”, which OTG explains “treats travellers to a beloved breakfast spot in the morning, before metamorphosing into a highly customisable, fast-casual dining experience by lunchtime”.
These recent additions round out the completion of OTG’s latest project within Concourse G’s Pod 5, where the company has also launched locations for both Cibo Express Gourmet Markets and Starbucks.
“OTG has a proven track record of enriching the guest experience through tireless innovation at the intersection of tech and hospitality,” claims OTG CEO, Rick Blatstein.
“We’re excited to continue our expansion at MSP by introducing new concepts that are a direct reflection of Minneapolis’ thriving local restaurant scene and employ a forward-thinking approach to optimising the terminal space.”
The expansion of OTG’s hospitality footprint will continue to be powered by its industry-leading flo Xgen technology, which enables customers to place their food and beverage orders through a mobile platform across all OTG restaurants, retail markets and food halls.
From wherever the order is placed, the platform’s contactless payment allows users to complete their transaction with either a credit card, Google Pay, Apple Pay, Venmo or PayPal, all with one click.
The new concepts in Terminal 1’s Concourse G are Poppy’s Bagels & Custom Burger; Crisp & Green; and Mill City Tavern, the latter returning to MSP after a three year hiatus and offering seasonal bistro fare.
