SSP opens new outlets at Frankfurt

SSP News Release 21-October-2010

SSP has opened a new food court called Around the World at Frankfurt Airport.

 To appeal to a broad range of customers, the new facility is comprised of three distinct offers - a sushi concept, a bakery and a free flow restaurant. Temaki Bar (‘temaki’ means ‘hand rolled’ in Japanese), serves traditional sushi, and is particularly popular with female customers. Around the World also features SSP’s first Kamps Backstube bakery unit. Kamps Backstube serves freshly baked artisan breads prepared in front of the customer. It is a new development for the Kamps brand, which, with 950 stores across the country, is Germany’s largest bakery chain. The new brand has already attracted attention among the wider airport community outside of Germany.

 Around the world is designed in dark and soothing colours with piano-black accents, while the use of subtle down-lighting together with natural woods, bamboo and brick, creates a calming atmosphere. It also offers a range of seating to provide a relaxing respite for busy travellers, whether they are travelling in groups, on their own, for leisure or business.

 ‘Our new food court has done much to improve the choice and quality here at Frankfurt,’ said Mark Hallstein, Head of Food and Beverage at Fraport AG. ‘Temaki Bar offers something a little out of the ordinary, while Kamps Backstube is a premium offer that meets the high expectations of our passengers.’

 The new offer is also proving a commercial success and sales at the Temaki Bar are substantially higher than originally forecast, while both Kamps Backstube and the free flow restaurant are also performing well. Around the World replaces an existing food court, which was also operated by SSP.
