SSP America has opened what it calls “a modern-day food and beverage Marketplace” at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX)’s Southwest Airlines gate in Terminal 1.

The portfolio of brands introduces a new mix of local celebrity and chef-led favorites as well as world-class national brands.

Vice President of Business Development Scott Welding commented: “SSP America is delighted to be part of the growth and investment at LAX. Our mix of high-performing national brands and popular local brands, backed with star-studded, chef-driven prominence, will bring variety, choice and a true LA taste of place to Southwest passengers.”

SSP’s line-up includes:

Cassell’s Hamburgers: Cassell’s Hamburgers brings a local crown jewel of LA’s culinary realm, featuring chef Christian Page’s award-winning burgers, sandwiches, salads and sides.

Beaming: Beaming Organic Superfood Café offers a quick, health-focused option with its newest location in Terminal 1 at the Southwest Airlines gate. The cafe, known for its organic and fresh superfood smoothies, plant-based food, and gluten-, soy-, and dairy-free baked goods, continues to expand, with LAX as its eighth location in Southern California. Beaming LAX will feature grab-and-go juices and meals as well as a full smoothie bar.

Chick-fil-A: Chick-fil-A brings a menu made from fresh, simple ingredients, with many hand-prepared in-house. In addition to the signature sandwich, Chick-fil-A offers a variety of menu options including breakfast items, salads, Waffle Potato Fries, fruit cups, lemonade and treats.
