Big Shoulders is SSP’s latest opening as part of their joint venture, Midway Partnership, consisting of SSP America, Vantage Airport Group, and Hudson Group, at MDW.

Named one of “The 25 Best Coffee Roasters in America” by Gear Patrol in 2018,

Big Shoulders Coffee offers a daily selection of carefully selected roasted coffees, as well as limited-time coffees, single-origin coffees from micro coffee producers and seasonal blends.

The brand’s locally famous mocha lattes and marshmallow lattes are also offered.

“We are thrilled to be working with our partners, SSP America, to increase our coffee brand recognition at Midway. We’re very grateful for the opportunity to touch so many passengers who travel through the airport on a daily basis,” said Tim Coonan, Founder, Big Shoulders Coffee.

“We keep it simple by staying focused. We believe that we have the perfect cup of coffee for Chicago and for the traveling public at Midway.”

Michael Caveny, Director Brands & Concepts, said: “SSP America couldn’t be more excited about opening Big Shoulders Coffee with Tim and Patricia Coonan and our outstanding location at MDW’s Concourse A. Big Shoulders will bring Midway’s passengers a unique, only-in-Chicago experience from one of the city’s leading, artisan coffee roasters.”
