Bob Evans’ famous farm fresh goodness™ is available for travelers in an international airport for the first time ever at Port Columbus International Airport in Columbus, Ohio.

Port Columbus, and Bob Evans Farms Inc. celebrated the opening by cutting the ribbon in Concourse B with airport concessionaire HMSHost.

“Passengers flying Air Canada, American/US Airways, United and Vacation Express will enjoy the menu items - some new and some old favorites - that Bob Evans Express provides in this new airport venue,” said Elaine Roberts, President and CEO of the Columbus Regional Airport Authority.

Bob Evans Express is a new restaurant concept from Columbus-based Bob Evans, specifically targeted to consumers in venues such as airports, malls, offices and universities.

The menu features traditional favorites like the Rise and Shine Farmhouse Breakfast, Big Farm cheeseburger, and Bob Evans’ Cinnamon Blossoms and coffee. New, portable menu items made to travel are a salsa and cheese breakfast bake, wildfire grilled chicken wrap and pot roast mashed potato powl.

“Partnering with Bob Evans and the Columbus Regional Airport Authority, two remarkable Ohio organizations, to bring the first Bob Evans Express to Port Columbus has been a very positive experience and we are so excited to be up and running,” said HMSHost Executive Vice President of Business Development Derryl Benton. “Bob Evans is a renowned restaurant brand with both local and national appeal, and we are proud to provide the latest iteration of this beloved brand to travelers of Port Columbus.”

Bob Evans was founded in southeastern Ohio in 1946. The original farm is still operational today, and even hosts a farm festival every year, ensuring the Bob Evans heritage lives on.
