SSP and Berlin Brandenburg Airport celebrate the opening of two Burger King restaurants and a Starbucks Coffee


SSP and Berlin Brandenburg Willy Brandt Airport have opened two Burger King restaurants and a Starbucks Coffee shop at Terminal 1. The landside Burger King restaurant opened in December and the airside F&B units – a Starbucks and a second Burger King - opened earlier this month in time for the busy Easter travel season.


The new concepts reflect the urban vibe of contemporary Berlin, and the innovative store design features artwork from the city. Within the airside food court, the Burger King restaurant spans 329 square meters and seats 125 customers while the Starbucks Coffee House is 104 square meters and offers 28 seats. In the landside arrivals area, the Burger King restaurant measures 285 square meters and has 126 seats. The new outlets will employ 75 full-time colleagues.


Oliver Haub and Wenzel Burger, Managing Directors of SSP DACH said; “We’re very pleased to be able to offer BER Airport passengers another Burger King restaurant and a Starbucks which will do much to enhance the F&B offer at this important airport. These two brands will delight travellers visiting Berlin.”


Aletta von Massenbach, CEO of Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH was similarly enthusiastic about the new outlets. “We’re very pleased with the Burger King and Starbucks at BER, and our passengers can now choose from a total of eight different concepts in our airside food court. In SSP, we have a strong partner at our side, and this expansion shows the attractiveness of our airport as a location as well as the outstanding relationship between the airport and our concession partners.”


Digital technology has been used where possible to facilitate quicker and more convenient service. Digital menu boards mean that customers can see the options available at all times of the day, while at Burger King, 12 self-order terminals airside and a further ten terminals in the landside restaurant ensure that ordering is simple and stress-free.


Sustainability has also been a priority in the design of the menu. Burger King’s menu caters for flexitarian, vegetarian, and vegan diets with a broad selection of plant-based option, while Starbucks also serves a range of vegan and vegetarian options alongside responsibly sourced coffee with dairy-alternative options at no extra charge.


The airside Burger King and Starbucks outlets are open to guests from 4am to 10pm, while the landside Burger King will welcome customers from 3.30am to midnight.
