SSP to open six outlets at PKX
SSP will offer dining options that appeal to both local and international travelers. Blue Frog Bar & Grill, a casual Western restaurant in China, will open on the third-floor airside area of the airport. It will serve a selection of classic dishes with an emphasis on North American foods – steaks, burgers, sliders and ribs.
Popular Japanese restaurant Saboten will open on the second floor of the domestic airside area, marking the chain’s first appearance at a mainland airport in China. Saboten will offer samples of its signature dishes including tonkatsu sauce and koshihikari rice.
A second Saboten will open on the fifth-floor departure landside mezzanine alongside three other Asian food and beverage brands – wonton noodle maker Chee Kei, Chinese snack chain Taoyuan Village and Hungry Korean, for a modern twist on authentic Korean dishes.
“We’re delighted to have secured this new deal at Beijing Daxing International Airport and to have the opportunity to bring our market-leading concepts to this exciting new development,” said Mark Angela, CEO of SSP Asia Pacific in a release from the company. “The travel retail market in China continues to grow at a rapid pace, and these latest launches will enable us to grow our presence and gain a stronger foothold in this burgeoning region.”
