Alicante-Elche Airport will have the first Häagen-Dazs outlet in Spain

SSP Group PLC, has secured an eight-year contract worth approximately €203 million (US$229 million) to open seven food and beverage units at Alicante-Elche Airport in Spain.

SSP will partner with BrewDog, the UK’s independent craft brewery, to launch a bar in the departures area in June. Founded in 2007, BrewDog’s focus on creating craft beers has made it one of the fastest growing and most recognizable breweries around the world. The company opened its first bar in Aberdeen in 2010 and now operates more than 80 bars globally, including two Outpost BrewPubs where they brew beer on site.

SSP will also launch a mix of international brands and popular local concepts both airside and landside under the new deal.

Burger King was the first brand to launch with three units opened in March. SSP will also debut its first Häagen-Dazs ice cream shop in Spain and open a new restaurant from one of North America’s largest chains, Tim Hortons, in June. A new outlet from Spanish charcuterie experts Enrique Tomas will follow in November.

“We are delighted to have been awarded this new contract at Alicante-Elche, which reaffirms our position as a leading operator in the travel market in Spain,” Blanca Ripoll, Managing Director of SSP Spain. “We look forward to opening with these new on-trend and exciting brands, which will no doubt provide a wide choice of food and drink options to our valued customers.”
