East Food Court renovation begin

Construction walls are up at the East Food Court located across from Gates 7 and 8. This marks the closure, construction and introduction of new food and retail concepts in the East Food Court. Along with coffee and pastries offerings, the new concepts include The Peached Tortilla, Juiceland, and a bar featuring brew from the Live Oak Brewing Company.

The new concepts will replace Hoover’s, Hill’s Café, Nuevo Leon, and Wok & Roll. Auntie Anne’s will remain open during some renovation work and later will convert to MAD Greens. Temporary Grab & Go kiosks will operate in the area during the food court renovation and restrooms and art gallery near the location will remain open during the construction.

The East Food Court is part of the airport’s overall refresh plans for stores and concessions. Restaurants that recently completed construction and opened for customers include Second Bar + Kitchen, IVINI’s Italian and the expansion of Salt Lick Bar-B-Que. Annie’s Café and Bar on the west side of the Barbara Jordan Terminal is currently undergoing renovations, estimated for completion later this year.
