Consumer trends continuously point to a high demand for wholesome yet quick dining options to meet the needs of increasingly busy, health-conscious lifestyles – especially those of travelers.
That’s why Concessions International (CI), one of the top airport food and beverage concessionaires in the country, has teamed up with Atlanta-based Proof of the Pudding to concept fresh gourmet kiosks that provide Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson airport travelers with healthy food selections on-the-go. The first Proof of the Pudding kiosk opened August 20th in the Atlanta airport’s newly renovated Concourse B.
Executive Chef of Proof of the Pudding, Vagn Nielsen, developed a menu of all-natural, high-quality salads, wraps, sandwiches and snacks that are not only delicious but also include items within the guidelines for fat and sodium limitation recommendations outlined by the USDA.
The Proof of the Pudding kiosks will be joined by four additional CI concepts in Concourse B – Gabriel’s Desserts in September , a Samuel Adams bar in October, Café Tazza in November and FLY Burger Bar Boutique by Chef Tom Catherall in December. Concessions International’s existing Concourse B ventures include Paschal’s, Little Azio Pizza, Dos Equis Explorer Lounge, LottaFrutta and Fresh To Order.
