SSP UK & Ireland has increased its presence at Gatwick Airport with the opening of two exclusive food and beverage outlets. The first Tortilla airport outlet and bespoke brand Juniper and Co. both opened their doors to the public on Thursday 9th September, providing a unique offering for the London airport’s passengers within the North Terminal.
Tortilla, the UK’s largest fast-casual Mexican restaurant brand, already has 51 outlets across the UK, but the latest offering at Gatwick will be its first venture into airports.
Passengers will be able to enjoy Tortilla’s fast-casual offerings, with dishes such as burritos, tacos, quesadillas and salads on the menu.
Meanwhile Juniper and Co., a premium bar and restaurant offering locally sourced produce, is a bespoke brand created for Gatwick.
The bar area will be a focal point with its elegant marble finished bar and contemporary brass-finished central gantry, while the modern seated area offers passengers the opportunity to enjoy the broad range of drinks from the bar, whilst indulging in the locally inspired food menu.
Rachel Bulford, Director of Retail at Gatwick Airport, said: “We are delighted to welcome both Tortilla and Juniper and Co. to Gatwick. It’s exciting to not only have two new F&B offerings for our passengers to enjoy, but for them to be unique to Gatwick really demonstrates the pull of the airport.
“With more passengers now returning to the airport to enjoy holidays abroad, visit family and friends, or travel for business, it’s exciting to see our departure lounge starting to get that exciting buzz back again, and the additions of Tortilla and Juniper and Co. will only add to that atmosphere.”
Richard Lewis, CEO SSP UK & Ireland, said: “With the steady return of passengers to Gatwick, we’re delighted to be opening our doors at Tortilla and Juniper. Whether you fancy a freshly made burrito to take onto the plane or would prefer to relax in beautiful surroundings with a delicious meal and cocktail, these two new brands will be a great addition to the dining scene at the airport.”
