SSP America opens three restaurants at BOS
SSP America announced in an October 26 press release that it has opened three new restaurants at Boston Logan International Airport (BOS). The additions are part of the newly expanded Terminal E, which was built to accommodate increased passenger demand.
The three restaurant concepts are locally owned restaurants and include a woman-led distillery (The Boston Harbor Distillery), a New England pizza mainstay (Sal’s Pizza) and a restaurant synonymous with a celebrity family (Wahlburgers), the press release shared.
SSP America’s Vice President of Business Development Bob Stanton commented on the openings, “These iconic restaurants perfectly deliver the ‘taste of place’ for which the SSP America team is known. Delivering a culinary experience to passengers in the expanded, and really cool, Terminal E wouldn’t be possible without our Boston team led by our Director of Operations Jackie Genao. Jackie is an amazing leader, and we’re so grateful for the entire team’s commitment and passion.”
The Boston Harbor Distillery was founded by Rhonda Kallman in 2012 to make whole-grain whisky and other spirits. The press release called Kallman, “One of America’s craft beverage industry thought leaders and a pioneering woman in the beer industry.”
SSP America’s BOS restaurant will serve pub classics throughout the day along with an extensive cocktail menu featuring Putnam Barrel Aged Old Fashioned, Boston Blaze Bloody Mary made with Demon Seed Whiskey and all-natural Maple Cream Espresso Martini
“Boston Harbor Distillery is proud to have been selected by SSP America to be the featured concept representing a taste of Boston inside Logan Airport’s newly expanded International Terminal E,” said Rhonda Kallman of the restaurant opening. “This world-class concept showcases our small batch, hand-crafted whiskey and inventive spirits to be enjoyed when a passengers’ travels take them through Logan. Come, raise a glass with us. Cheers!”
The second local restaurant in the lineup of new additions at BOS is Sal’s Pizza. The press releasee calls it, “One the most recognizable pizza names in New England,” noting the brand is the creation of East Boston native, Sal Lupoli. The first shop opened in the 1990s and now more than 120 locations are selling these pies, including restaurants, express locations and the frozen aisle at the grocery store. The BOS menu will include the brand’s specialty pies, sandwiches, salads and breakfast strombolis.
“We are thrilled to partner with SSP to bring Sal’s Pizza to the newly expanded Terminal E,” said Sal Lupoli, CEO and Founder of Sal’s Pizza. “We take great pride in being Boston’s hometown pizza, made with only the freshest ingredients, and we look forward to offering the Sal’s experience to travelers.”
Wahlburgers rounds out the three concept restaurants announced by SSP America at BOS. Created by celebrity family the Wahlburgs, Mark, Donnie, and Paul created the restaurant to share their family’s love of great food, the press release said. Chef Paul’s menu features premium burgers, sandwiches, salads and sides. This addition to Terminal E is the second Wahlburgers at BOS and will feature the brand’s signature burgers such as the Our Burger topped with Paul’s signature Wahl Sauce, sandwiches and salads including Jenn’s Chicken Salad.
“We’ve worked with SSP for a number of years and have had great success with our restaurant in Terminal C at Logan. We’re excited to expand our footprint with the opening of Terminal E and look forward to greeting even more travelers with the Boston experience at Wahlburgers,” said Chef Paul Wahlburg.
SSP America also operates three restaurants in Terminal C: modern Asian and Boston restaurant Shojo, a full-service Wahlburgers and SSP America’s proprietary brand Camden Food Co. In Terminal B, SSP America operates the Mexican restaurant Temazcal Tequila Cantina.
