The new Salt Lake City International Airport (The New SLC), which is set to open in Fall of 2020, will boast a wide array of food and beverage options, the airport operator has announced.

The first phase of The New SLC will include 23 concepts from Cafe Rio, HMSHost, LaTrelles, OHM, SSP America, Salt Lake Brewing Company, and The Grove. The selection includes a number of local favorites.

“Our passengers are hungry for a variety of food and beverage options,” said Bill Wyatt, Executive Director, Salt Lake City Department of Airports. “Today’s traveler expects airports to provide a quality selection of restaurants with affordable pricing. Whether it’s casual fare or fine dining, they will find it at The New SLC Airport.”

Popular options such as Cafe Rio, Market Street Grill, Smashburger and Squatters are returning, along with new concepts, such as Fillings & Emulsions, Granatos, Pago, Panera Bread, Silver Diner and Shake Shack. All restaurants will offer breakfast, lunch and dinner.

A welcome dining option pre-security on the second level will house Blue Lemon, and a Starbucks cafe will be located pre-security on level one. Additional food and beverage concepts will be added to the program for the second phase of The New SLC, which is due to open in 2024/25.

As with the retail component of The New SLC, street pricing is planned for food and beverage. This means passengers will pay the same price charged at the store locations outside of the airport.

The first phase of The New SLC will include a central terminal, the west end of two concourses and a parking garage.

It will be completed in the fall of 2020, with the second phase scheduled to be finished in late 2024.
