Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport is looking for a few good concessions. The airport is seeking high-end retailers and restaurateurs to offer brands, food offerings and services that appeal to international travelers. Retail and service opportunities in the released Request for Proposals (RFP) include duty free, consumer electronics, news, coffee, convenience, spa, candy, premium retail and international and domestic teas.

The RFP for more than 30 concession locations includes food and beverage opportunities, such as a Mediterranean grill, sports bar, snack, deli, upscale Italian, experiential or signature bar, pub, high-end bistro and wine bar. The RFP represents the first major revision of the Terminal D concessions program since the terminal opened in 2005. “Our Terminal D concessions program has received numerous awards through the years,” said Ken Buchanan, executive vice president of revenue management. “Now we are seeking to enhance our customer experience even more with new concepts that can help DFW compete on a global scale.”

D/FW Airport set a record for annual passengers with 62.9 million expected in 2014, and has increased its international service by adding 18 new nonstop destinations since 2011.
