Concessions International Opens Latina Owned Restaurant In Atlanta's Airport

ATLANTA, July 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Working with Concessions International (CI), Atlanta-based LottaFrutta opens its first airport location in Concourse B of Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport (ATL), making it one of the airport's only Latina-owned restaurant vendors and its first franchised location.   Concessions International (CI), which operates concessions throughout the airport and in eight airports across the U.S. and U.S. Virgin Islands, is working with the Atlanta airport officials to renovate the food court area of Concourse B. Renovation will be completed in December 2013 and will contain 10 new restaurants including seven Atlanta-based concepts. The restaurants will offer travelers a taste of the Atlanta area and supply demand for healthy and fresh food and beverage options.  

LottaFrutta, joins Fresh To Order (f2o), another Atlanta-based hot spot, in the renovated Concourse B terminal. The gourmet cafe will feature a delicious assortment of fresh fare including signature fruit cups, salads, sandwiches, juices and smoothies in a colorful, fun, Pan-Latin-inspired atmosphere. Even LottaFrutta's traditional Mexican Paletas (popsicles) and Ecuadorian Helado (ice cream) – customer favorites – will be among the offerings.

The airport LottaFrutta will be operated by a joint venture between CI and H&H Hospitality, an Atlanta ACDBE owned by Kevin Holt and Randy Hazelton, founders and former operators of Cafe Circa, also located in Atlanta's Old Fourth Ward. CI also recently opened an Einstein Bros. Bagels in Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.
